The beginning of a dream

In 2006 I started playing soccer with street children in the center of “The city of eternal spring” Medellin, Colombia. Many children participated and, after a while, a large group participated structurally. It were the same children who asked me the following question: “Can we play soccer in an official competition?”

“I want to do my best, but if i do, I want you to stay in a shelter (instead of the streets) and go to school”, was my answer.

Many children agreed and in 2007 we started with a boys and girls team in an official competition. It was the beginning of what is now Fundación Caminos, an organization that today is much more than soccer. Welcome to our website and enjoy discovering our work.

Target group

At the moment, the foundation supports 400 children and youth directly and 80 children indirectly through the shelters of the center.

The objective of the foundation is and continues to be education.

Fundación Caminos is a non-profit organization that promotes the social integration of children disadvantaged by poverty, domestic violence, abandonment, sexual harassment and addiction in order to broaden their horizon.

The results speak for themselves
