Despite its important role and influence in the local community, PCK does not have adequate physical plant for the development of their activities, therefore use loan places like the Casa Bosco and the neighborhood community center Camino Viejo of San Cristóbal, when these spaces are not available, they are forced to make their workshops  outside Additionally, the house where the administrative headquarters functions, was designed for residential use and therefore is not conditioned for the activities carried out there.

The intervention of Architecture for Humanity Bogotá DC, addresses two main objectives. The first one in short-term, is to adequate the administrative headquarters of the Association PCK and maximize the area to be exploited to the maximum by the community. The second, long-term thinking is to build a home for PCK to have all the appropriate spaces for the development of the activities of this organization.
