We are currently working with 8 youngsters between the ages of 16 and 19, who have defined their “life project” with the help of our team. Our youngsters are enrolled in university and study a wide range of inspiring subjects. Additionally, they organize monthly activities developed from university education which allows them to grow personally and to generate growth in their communities. We work together with their families to improve family relationships and encourage dialogue as a tool for communication and conflict resolution.

Luz Eneidis is the organizational talent of the team. She gets everything arranged, is incredibly disciplined and can effortlessly do 10 things at the same time. During her exam year she was the only one who passed the entrance exam of the University of Cartagena. We have already said before that this exam is extremely difficult to pass and that the university only accepts 10% of all registrations. Given the socio-economic background of Luz Eneidis and the fact that the quality of her education is far behind what the well-off children receive, this means that Luz Eneidis has had to work extremely hard to achieve this. Biology is her passion and she is fascinated by everything that lives on planet earth. She is studying Biology at the University of Cartagena and would like to specialize in marine biology. Within the foundation Luz Eneidis, together with Edwin (Environmental Technology), Luz Elena (Accountancy) and Liangys (Physical Education), organizes many activities in the field of personal and educational development, environmental education and other recreational activities. They are guided in this by Benjamin, Hilda and Rosita. Please donate to make this possible.
