New school for El Brasil, Colombia

In Ministry to Children (IMC)

Target: £16,000.00



Start Date: 22-Aug-2017

End Date: 31-Dec-2018

About my fundraising

El Brasil is a small hamlet in the La Guajira area of northern Colombia. The indigenous Wayuu people who live there suffer extreme poverty and malnutrition. Off the government radar, they lack even basic services. Severe drought in recent years has left them desperate.

The primary school at El Brasil was destroyed 18 years ago by the Farc guerrilla. Despite this, the teacher, Marbel Escorcha, has continued to run the school of 97 children in the most basic of settings.

Following the peace agreement, Essex based construction company A2O is contributing to the post-conflict era with a re-build of the school, in partnership with the charity IMC (In Ministry to Children).

Thanks to sponsorship already raised for the mud race event in September, and fundmatching by A2O, Phase 1 of the school project will be underway soon but there is still around £12 000 to be raised to complete the project.

You can also raise money for this charity simply by shopping online.
