It was the month of February 1996 when a group of young Christians went to the Egipto neighborhood of Bogota to visit a young man who had suffered an accident that almost killed him, when we arrived there we found a very sad and devastating panorama … a lot of children running in the streets, dirty, almost barefoot, skinny and wandering in the streets, this scene impacted our lives and so we decided to go back and start working in some way to change this reality, since there was also existed a gang were the children will easly end up, as they had done their older brothers, already by several generations. In such a way that we began to go on Saturdays to share with them, have a time of recreation, teaching Christian values and in the end a hot chocolate with bread … which for some was the only meal of the day.
Over time we realized that this aid was insufficient to achieve our vision to improve their quality of life, as some of them began to use drugs, to deserters from school and to enter a criminal life; so we decided since 2002 to open CASA BUENA SEMILLA to serve them in the same context in the areas of nutrition, reinforcement and school counseling, and Christian moral values. Works that until today we continue realizing along with workshops of Music therapy, art-therapy and a School of Soccer. As well as a scholarship program for alumni.
