A middle power, Colombia is the third largest economy in South America and one of the oldest democracies in Latin America. However, it has endured over 40 years of armed conflict and widespread drug production and trafficking. It also ranks among the most unequal Latin American countries in terms of wealth distribution.
Dominated by informal jobs and a high rate of unemployment, there are few significant prospects for the creation of new work opportunities.
For over 30 years, Fundacion Casa de Colombia has been working tirelessly supporting the most vulnerable children from Colombia in areas of health, education and nutrition.
