Who Are These Children?
These children are bright, sweet, hopeful souls who dream big and want nothing more than to live a happy life with a belly full of food, a warm home and a good education. Most are being raised by a single parent, many of whom are only able to provide for their families through selling candies on the street, the drug trade, begging, or prostitution.
With your help, we are sponsoring 145 underprivileged children in Medellin, Colombia.
Sponsorship is only $50 per month. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please click Here and provide us your information. We will be happy to contact you regarding options.
If sponsorship is not for you right now, a contribution to SOLAHIS will help cover the cost of the services provided to the children and their community. This includes weekly community meals and programs such as parenting and marriage courses. Any sized contribution is greatly appreciated and extremely helpful.

What Sponsorship Provides
Sponsored children have access to school uniforms and school supplies. They also have access to tutoring. Education is fundamental to breaking the cycle of poverty.
Sponsored children have access to a fully fenced and gated facility where they can have the freedom to have fun and not worry about the dangers of their homes or neighbourhood.
Each week, the sponsored children are provided with 6 meals before or after school. Having a nutritious meal assists in brain development and helps the kids do better in school.
Essential to a child's well-being, sponsored children have access to regular check-ups and training in hygiene and disease prevention.
We have a post-secondary scholarship fund that provides opportunity for students to attend post secondary schooling. Without this, these students would not have access to higher education.
