Juan Felipe Gomez Escobar Foundation

Juan Felipe Gomez Escobar Foundation-Cartagena-Poverty

In Cartagena, Columbia, one-third of residents live at or below the poverty line. In addition, Colombian government reports that nearly 20% of girls between 15 and 19 years old are or have been pregnant, a statistic that is nearly triple the U.S. rate.

These staggering statistics, and the hope of transforming her own grief from her 16-month-old son's tragic death into something positive, are what inspired Catalina Escobar to create an organization to combat the negative consequences of poverty in Columbia including teenage pregnancy, infant mortality and overall poor health of teenage mothers and their children.

Donating school supplies for teen mothers gives them the opportunity to be more than they could ever dream.With your help they can be given the opportunity to support both themselves and their children.

Teenage mothers can finish high school, take computer classes or learn vocational skills like sewing, jewelry-making and cosmetology. The mothers also make and sell products at the center's bakery, which helps fund the program.
