Projects - Cadena Colombia
The Cadena Foundation is a Jewish non-profit, non-governmental organization specializing in the prevention of and assistance during emergencies around the planet, helping directly the affected communities. The Foundation is built around the Tikkun Olam values, which talk about surpassing indifference and taking responsibility whenever possible. Their views preach viewing the entirety of mankind as one united family and asking yourself what you can do about the disasters and problems others are facing.
Virtual after school aims to increase the number of children completing primary and secondary education in vulnerable communities (SDG4), strengthening their resilience and increasing their chances of getting out of poverty (SDG1). Virtual After School proposes to train and connect volunteers with school-age children of remote and/or at risk communities using technology platforms to support them with homework and to provide emotional support. As part of the program, the volunteers will be engaged in virtual peer meetings to be trained and to share experiences and learnings, expecting to empower them and to constitute a virtual community of young Jewish people committed to influence and lead positive changes in their communities.
