What we do

A bit of our history

The mission of the Cigarra Foundation is to provide 'comprenhensive quality care' to the vulnerable population of Puertas del Paraíso, Ciudad Bolívar in Bogotá. We have 180 children aged from 1 to 18. The 5 to 18 year olds attend the Foundation on their alternate school hours. In addition to having a safe place to learn and play, we offer nutritional and psychological support and seek to strengthen their development through music, technology and English programs.
