About us

We help disadvantaged students in latin America achieve their university dreams

What we do

We identify students facing economic hardship with their living expenses and at risk of dropping out.  Our students receive financial assistance and integral support as part of our mission.  We want them to be financially secure and build skills outside of their academic curriculum so they can succeed in the labor market.

What drives us

We are changing lives by supporting disadvantaged students.  Latin America has historically suffered from low social mobility, which impacts its economic growth.  Low-income families may need ten or more generations in some countries to reach the mean income.  We believe in the power of education to promote social mobility.  Through the support of disadvantaged university students, we positively impact the individual, their families, their local communities, and an entire country.

We help disadvantaged students in Latin America achieve their university dreams.  We currently support college students from many remote areas in Colombia who are at risk of dropping out due to economic hardship.  Students receive financial support for living expenses, professional development, and counseling.

We rely on donations and events to finance our operations.  We prioritize the use of donations to fund our program while the income from our events is prioritized to cover management expenses, finance future events and support our program.  Read how you can support us.
