For the past two years, Give To Colombia has seen firsthand the dedication that Fundación Soles Marianos has for children with special needs.

They understand that Colombia lacks many of the social programs required to adapt to the learning needs of those with cognitive disabilities, Autism, Down syndrome, learning disabilities, and progressive muscular dystrophy. Their goal is to provide these children with academic and therapeutic workshops, but they lack many of the basic items we take for granted.

Through their last campaign, they built a “kiosk” classroom for the children, but have now realized their rural location poses several challenges.

As of now, Soles Marianos relies on the goodwill of their employees, nearby school vans, and buses from other routes to help them transport the children, but this limits their ability to carry out all their programs. There are many times when the children have no choice other than to walk extremely long ditances to get around as they live a rural town like Cogua where there is no public transportation available.

With your support, we now hope to help them purchase a mini bus so they may transport the children to and from school every day. It will also help them carry out educational field trips where the children are able to work on their interpersonal & social skills as well as learn how to interact in new environments.
