Colombia is a country experiencing rapid economic development. However, pressing social needs remain, including endemic violence and a lack of opportunities for young people. We have been in separate discussions with a number of organisations: Fútbol con Corazon (FCC), Fundación Corona, Fundación Mi Sangre, Fundación Carulla (aeioTU) and Fundacion Mario Santo de Domingo who are at the forefront of tackling these social challenges.
Recognising the potential for collaboration, we proposed helping a group of Colombian-based social organisations replicate by creating a cohort of funders and grantees. We are working with Fundación Corona – a leading Colombian foundation who support a number of social ventures – as part of this cohort.
