Project Details

By reinforcing the workforce we are working to help to improve peoples quality of life in the community of San Javier and La Mesa Cundinamarca.

Volunteers Colombia LPDLM social projects have been created to help a community to stay together, to empower them to keep their youngster into the village and family and to keep alive the production of sugar cane and coffee beans their main income support . There is a big shortage of staff and qualified workers to carry on maintaining this small society. Big families have found themselves behind technology losing the aim for farming, looking after the elderly and teaching children or working in the health sector. Now day’s these youth are attracted to live and work in a big city where they feel they can become more successful, living behind their parents, small children and farms, but most of them cannot achieve it for the lack of education putting themselves into gangs, drug addiction, prostitution, and child trafficking among other social problems. Volunteers will help the youth to broaden their views, by teaching them new ways of living in their own community, new skills to carry on farming, new English language skills and tourism as well as support the hospital and the elderly. There for create more jobs and keep this small village together and farming to increase production.
