Home for girls in Medellin

Fundacion Cultivando Sonrisas is a nonprofit organization that provides a safe home for girls (ages 0-18) in the City of Medellín Colombia. The girls we serve are at risk of physical and sexual abuse, and exploitation due to extreme poverty, and an environment which is plagued with prostitution and drug addiction, in the city of Medellin, Colombia. Their goal is to provide a safe and loving place for each girl to call home throughout their childhood and adolescents. They aim to help each girl complete their education successfully and have a smooth transition into adulthood, the way any parent would want for their own child. Cultivando Sonrisas currently rents the house where the girls live, and they will no longer be able to stay in the current house where they reside past November, due to extenuating circumstances. They have found another house they will be able to rent for the girls to live in a neighboring mountain town of Medellin called Santa Elena.

However, it is a deep desire and goal for the foundation to own property in Santa Elena, with lots of land and a large house to be able to, not only provide optimal healing and development for the girls they serve, but also to be able to expand their services to more and more children in Medellín. In 2015, they began a fundraising campaign for the future permanent home for Cultivando Sonrisas in which they raised $50,000 USD. In doing our research to build or buy a home in Santa Elena that is adequate for the current needs and has the possibility for future growth, they will need approximately $170,000 USD.  This amount is
on top of the monthly budget which needs to be continually raised to keep the girls safe and secure with all of their ongoing needs being met.

So, with the $50 thousand we have already raised that leaves us with another $120,000 USD to raise. That may seem like a huge mountain to climb, but we believe that it is more than possible. We believe in God’s faithfulness, and it has been proven over and over through the generosity of others.

Raising money for both rent and living expenses for all of our girls at the same time as raising money to buy a house is no easy task, and this is where you can truly make a lasting impact in the lives of these girls. Rather you can give $1 or $1,000 every $1 is impactful and meaningful!

Please donate as you are able, and please share our page, and tell your friends and family about the great work of Cultivando Sonrisas!
