CASA HOGAR – these are two young teams, one in Germany, one in Colombia. Together they are committed to empowering and educating women in the Chocó – a region that is still largely controlled by criminal rebel groups. The first concrete steps on the way to sustainable change in society are the expansion of a school and the construction of a residential house for girls.

What our supporters say

“Education is the key to a self-determined and dignified life. CASA HOGAR wants to hand this key to young destitute girls. The dedication and professionalism of this initiative deserve a big compliment.”

“What I find especially remarkable about CASA HOGAR is that it is such a direct and concrete humanitarian project. It offers the girls in Istmina a better future while working with a minimum of bureaucracy. Here I can be sure that the help actually arrives where it is so urgently needed.”
