There are many well-established nonprofit foundations and charitable organizations in Colombia that have been providing extremely valuable assistance to people in need. It is PharmaCielo Foundation’s mandate to not just provide direct funding and assistance for in-house ideas and projects, but to channel financial resources through many of these other foundations.
Additionally, Fundación PharmaCielo has received support from several corporations – both inside and outside of Colombia – that value the life-changing efforts we are putting forth.
We believe that by empowering people with the knowledge and the necessary skills to better their own lot in life, focusing on education for youth and skill development and job retraining we can help not just provide a fish but teach disadvantaged citizens how to fish for themselves.
Over the coming months, we intend to be involved with supporting many different efforts that help us realize the common goal we should all share… And that is to help create a more equitable and balanced social structure whereby all children's hopes and dreams can realistically be achieved.
If your foundation, charity or organization would like to consider sharing funding ideas or providing financial assistance alongside our efforts, please visit our Contact Us page and reach out. We can always use more helping hands!
The Dreams Foundation Colombia was created in 2001 by a group of neighboring farm owners in the village of Bolombolo, in southwestern Antioquia, Colombia, as a non-profit social organization committed to improving the quality of life for their neighbors. This campesino community was particularly hard hit in 2010 when extensive flooding, a frequent occurrence, destroyed many homes. The foundation strives to be the area's leader in generating and facilitating community development programs that contribute to improved living conditions of the most vulnerable of the population. Its mission is to promote community development through training, nutrition and other programs aimed at improving the quality of life and socioeconomic conditions, ever mindful of its core values: solidarity, commitment, honesty, equity and transparency. Beginning with the establishment of a canteen for the elderly and support for productive projects for single mothers in the Bolombolo area, in 2011 the foundation began supporting the community of Peñalisa (Salgar) and El Golpe (Concordia) in western Antioquia through family-focused entertaining and educational projects to promote self-sustainability and personal responsibility.
