The Casa de la Madre y el Niño organization, in collaboration with Fundación MAPFRE, has rolled out its Casa Sueños project with the goal of providing opportunities for children living in poverty in Bogota.

Casa Sueños is a program which gives the young beneficiaries the change to live in a foster family and to carry on with their university studies, since many of them have not had the chance to do this before.

The organization is committed to providing support to its beneficiaries throughout their entire journey, i.e. from when they enter the system (regardless of their age) until they are living with an adoptive family, and subsequently when they go to university and start building their own future. Without their help, having reached the age of 18, these young people would need to do this all by themselves with no support whatsoever. 

The Casa de la Madre y el Niño organization, with 75 years worth of stories to share, was the first Colombian institution to promote adoption as the best way of reestablishing the fundamental rights of abandoned children in Colombia.
