Transforming lives in Colombia
The beginning of a dream
In july 2006, Eddy Veldhuisen started playing soccer with street children in “the city of eternal spring”, Medellin, Colombia. In the end, a large group of children participated structurally and the question came:
Could we play soccer in an official league? “I want to do my best for it, But then I want you to stay home and go to school.
Most of the children agreed and so, in 2007, we started with a team of boys and another of girls in an official competition.
At the moment, we work with more than 400 children and their families in the center of the city and in the suburbs of Carambolas and Bello Oriente from our own accommodation ‘El Paraíso’.
We offer children and their families a comprehensive and innovative program of educational activities, sports, recreational and cultural. This should lead children to learn step by step who they are., what talents do you have, how they see their future and what they have to do to achieve it.
Welcome to our website and enjoy exploring our work.
Teamwork divides the work and multiplies the results
Happy kids, thriving communities
