Method

Fundación Caminos offers children an extensive program with pedagogical activities, sports, recreational and cultural activities in a safe environment. During these activities, we make children aware that they are responsible for their future.

Education is our main aim. Attending school is a condition to be able to participate in our activities, and as a base, we guide children in their development process so that they can choose a professional training and a formal job.

Specifically to the Bello Oriente and Carambolas neighborhoods to benefit more children, girls and young people with the activities and also with growth plans for the future of these communities
Located in Carambolas, it was a small rented apartment and it was there that the English projects were created, literacy, Computing, among others and started the explosive growth of the foundation with a clear focus on education
We arrived at 'El Paraíso', a larger house with spaces for more activities such as dance classes and mass re-enactments; here and with the help of the community, we have managed to consolidate the work and social results of previous years
Our work was officially recognized by the Assembly of Antioquia, otorgando a la fundación la Órden al mérito cívico y empresarial Jorge Robledo, el reconocimiento más importante que se da a las organizaciones en el departamento antioqueño
The 'El Paraíso' sports center is a stage for practicing disciplines such as basketball, volleyball, tennis and microfootball, unique in the neighborhood and where the community is welcome to develop and grow through sports, just as we have done from the beginning since the 2007
