New PlanetChildren For a New Planet is not just a school is a "home" for child victims of sexual abuse, and exploitation. This nonprofit organization provides them with housing, education, food, lots of love and everything they need to grow up happilly. However, the education provided is not the traditional, some of these children have lived too long in the streets and can not even write or read, or other age-appropriate things. Most importantly, this "education" is  aimed to regain the joy of living as many of these children do not want to move on because of the suffering they have endured. Broken roof

This home currently houses over 200 children, therefore, if we understand efectiveness as efficiency and efficacy the use of resources is our highest priority, for instance: 10% of the monthly budget is directed exclusively at Water consumption . Also, the physical facilities ranges from moderate to high damaged. 

Given the above we decided to embrace the project with a metaphor occurring in nature, if a seed is nurtured and cared for, in the future it will grow, be strong and bear fruit. To AFH Bogota these conditions must be translated on the following: as a first step, address the knowledge children have about their own space and as a second step address the project with special and environmentally friendly materials.

With this knowledge we decided to optimize the functionality of space, so that each of the organizational areas wereSeeds integrated and flowing into each process, that is how we have the recreational, habitational, educational and services areas Finally we stress that this project is done for and by people, AFH Bogotá will always look, lead and implement projects that cause social impact, if you need more information to participate find us on the contact us link.
