The Bright Kites Foundation unite with local artists to celebrate the future of the younger generation back home.
Having taught English for NGO ‘Heart for Change’ and the Ministry of Education’s program ‘Colombia Bilingüe’, The Bright Kites Foundation was founded by a group of volunteers to inspire and encourage students from public schools in some of the toughest neighbourhoods in the country. They aim to give these students a chance to grow, both academically and personally, by studying English in the UK and acting as ambassadors in their communities on their return.
With the funds raised, The BFK hope to send one student from each of their schools in Cali, Pereira and Medellin to Bayswater College this summer, with the hope to expand their network in the future!
