En el año 2015 recibimos apoyo de muchos de ustedes para extender nuestros servicios a Estados Unidos, como ya saben aZul por un Mejor Vivir nacio en colombia en el año 2013 y ahora estamos ofreciendo nuestros servicios en USA.

aZul for Better Living, Inc. tiene como mision ofrecer programas en diseño de modas, diseño industrial y en arte como herramienta de empoderamiento para adultos con habilidades diferenciales (condicion de sindrome de down, autismo, dificultades de aprendizaje, y otras condiciones cerebrales que afectan el desenvolviento de una persona en la sociedad) y sus cuidadores en miras de alcanzar estabilidad economica, dignidad y reconocimiento artistico.

A la fecha tenemos un estudio donde desarrollamos nuestros programas, tenemos una persona con habilidades diferenciales trabajando con nosotros y lento pero seguro ya estamos ofreciendo nuestro programa a dos equipos, es decir 2 personas con discapacidad y 2 cuidadores.

En la actualidad varias personas han tocado nuestras puertas interesadas en hacer parte de nuestros programas, solo que no cuentan con la capacidad economica para cubrir el costo economico. En respuesta, hemos creado una modalidad de patrocinio que consiste en recoger fondos que cubriran la educacion y el crecimiento de nuestras/os creativos/as.

Con su apoyo ellos se educan y pueden alcanzar estabilidad financiera en un futuro.

Gracias por su apoyo, entusiamo y colaboracion. Miles de bendiciones y mucho cariño.


We are grateful back in 2015 you supported us to kick off aZul for Better Living, Inc.,     
Non for Profit organization helping adults with developmental disabilities and their families to achieve financial independence, dignity and artistic recognition through Fashion Design, Refurbishing Lamps, and Fabric Art programs.

We are at current, growing slowly but surely. We now have been able to rent a class space to facilitate our hands on programs.  aZul has hired one person with disabilities part time, and is  in the process of applying for different grants to obtain more tools that will support our mission of family empowerment.

Up until now we are doing the best we can with what we have, we are sure we can do more with your support.

Your donation sponsors tuition for our creative teams, suffering from financial hardships to achieve their dreams in a meaningful way.

Our main workshop, Siguiendo el Hilo (following the thread), is about to start in Colombia. As we continue on using FASHION DESIGN as the inclusive art, that motivates our "different abled" population to be part of society and develope entrepeneurship projects. With the community support we will be offering these great workshops in West Palm Beach and South Florida, pretty soon. Thanks for being part of these venture!
