FROM GENERATION OF CHANGE TO REAL HERITAGE

Main aim of the charity

Our goal is to show a child, youth and vulnerable families in your area, that the solution is not in drugs, gangs or violence and that beyond all this there is a world of opportunities to get ahead, for this we do activities of learning, integration, recreation and fundamentals in Christian values.

How the employee got involved and why

I grew up in a vulnerable town in the city of Bogotá, where gangs, drugs, unwanted pregnancies, violence are a scourge, I have had the opportunity to grow with Christian values and working at DHL I have had the opportunity to provide help for those who like me, need help to see beyond. Initially I worked as a youth pastor where I led the GENERATION OF CHANGE group and now with God's help we are already advancing a project called HERENCIA REAL, a place of support and guidance for young people and their families, based on the word of God, there We work with young people in musical events, with children with recreation and theater events and with families with integration activities, all this in a small property that we acquired in the town of Usme in Bogotá, where together with my wife we are the pastors.

What work does the employee do for charity?

Together with my wife we are the pastors and we lead all support activities for children, youth and families in the town of Usme, Villa Anita, south of Bogotá.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

Beyond winning, it is to set an example to many who have grown up in DHL to have the initiative to help others who have fewer opportunities, and when we work on such an initiative, any support received is of great impact and of great importance to continue with this beautiful work.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

It generates me great satisfaction and motivates me to move forward, although not winning, I would also do it and I would have the satisfaction of making our work known.
