Our programs in Colombia give you a unique opportunity to experience this tropical country with its fascinating culture, loaded history and coastal charm.
Today Colombia ia a multi-ethnic nation combining a history of Spanish colonialism, African slave, indeginious Indians and a deep seeded Caribbean culture. The complex mix is evident in the countrie’s diverse traditions, cuisine, handi-crafts, architecture as well as their arts. Known for their delicious coffee, beautiful beaches and enthusiastic fairs and festivals, visitng Colombia is a great chance to expand your view of the World.
Despite a continuously growing tourist econmy there is a high poverty level, and many children are left the victims. High numbers of children do not attend school, lack proper nutrition, and find themselves peddling goods on the streets to survive.
Volunteering in Colombia can help to makelife a little bit easier for the poor and disadvantaged children. As a volunteer you will immerse yourself in the vibrant Latin American culture, learn about political and economic issues, and last but not least learn or improve your Spanish http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlVA_XiNKKE
