Where we work
Where we work?
Inequality in Latin America and the Caribbean is well known but not necessarily well understood. We see how the social contract is fractured on many levels. The poor are more vulnerable to climate change, they receive worse education and health care. Furthermore, government programs to redistribute income are less effective in this regions than any others. As a result, our schools and cities are segregated by income at levels not seen elsewhere.
If we do not address the challenge of inequality in a multidimensional manner, the region will continue to suffer from episodes of social unrest and remain vulnerable to external shocks.
Our work is currently located in Mexico and Colombia, with the perspective of soon reaching the rest of the Latinamerican communities that need it.
Time to take the next step ...

As is well known, since 2012 the monetary poverty index in Colombia had been decreasing, until it bottomed out in 2018 when it reached 34.7%. As of 2019, this trend was reversed, registering 35.7%, 1 percentage point higher than the previous year.
By 2021, poverty in Colombia will reach a level of between 47% and 49%. Six million people who had escaped poverty as of 2018 will return to it, as a result of Covid-19.
The regions within Colombia that we focus on include:
