Experiences

Chocó has a complex reality. What counts is the present and living for today. The presence and work of more than 15 years of tireless struggle of the Vedruna sisters has helped families improve their living conditions in many aspects, such as hygiene and sanitation in homes, child rearing guidelines, self-respect in relationships, school reinforcement, training and training of young people to lead activities in the neighborhood.
