In the agenda adopted in September 2015, the United Nations recognizes that eradicating poverty in all its forms is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. It calls for a spirit of global solidarity and acknowledges the role of the private sector, civil societies and philanthropic organizations in their contribution to the betterment of our world.
On this day, we would like to call your attention to the Fundación Cigarra “that provides quality comprehensive care and education for 170 boys and girls from 3 months to 18 years of age. It is located in Puertas del Paraíso, Ciudad Bolívar, Bogotá. The children aged 5-18 attend when they have no school. As well as providing a safe environment, they are taught music, IT (Information Technology) and English” (La Cigarra, 2019).
The Fundación has a ‘Sponsor a Child Programme’ which you can join to help one or more of these children thus contributing to a better future for them. Find out more at Fundación Cigarra
