About Colombia

Colombia is a republic in the northwest of South America and, with its approximately 50 million inhabitants, the second largest state on the continent in terms of population after Brazil. From densely forested lowlands and the Colombian part of Amazonia, to the mountain range of the Andes and the Caribbean coastal lowlands, the natural environment is extremely diverse.

Our Work

Our work in Colombia ties in with poorly accessible schools, low-paid educators, a high rate of school dropouts, and poor quality of teaching. The lack of career prospects after school is often the reason for the low motivation of children and young people to achieve a degree. The result is a low level of education and the risk of drifting into crime.
