Children of the Andes is a UK registered charity which was established in 1991 to support Colombian organisations dedicated to improving the lives of the country's most vulnerable children.
Colombia faces many problems:
- 1.5 million boys and girls have fled their homes due to the war;
- 30,000 live in the streets because poverty and war means they have nowhere else to go;
- 874,000 children aged between 6 and 11 work, many in dangerous jobs such as down mines.
Children of the Andes helps some of these children achieve their potential in life.
