The Fundación Ge initiative to help build a multi-service centre in the rural area of Colombia

La Fundación Ge is a Colombian charity dedicated to improving conditions in rural and impoverished regions of Colombia in South America.

In 2014, Delta Partners contributed USD87k in collaboration with La Fundación Ge to the construction of a multi-service centre in the San Pablo’s rural area. The numerous family living in the area did not have easy access to basic health and educational services within a reasonable travel time and distance from their homes.  These families and their children would have to travel great distances just to receive basic health care or to attend school.  This create a high illiteracy level for children as they would then drop out of school due to the difficulty of getting transportation.  Health of the families were also affected. 

The construction of the multi-service centre including a health centre, a school, teachers’ residence and a playground, services that we would take for granted in a developed world. Through our contribution and our partnership with La Fundación Ge, we were able to provide basic necessities and improve living conditions for about 200 families in the area.
