The Resource Foundation’s long term partner, Fundación para la Aplicación y Enseñanza de las Ciencias (FUNDAEC), was established to provide alternative strategies for social and economic development in Colombia. FUNDAEC's educational programs empower young people with tools for social action, while motivating them to serve their community, and help them to develop their leadership capabilities. This approach is in line with FUNDAEC's core belief in development through the creation of local structures and grassroots capacity building.
TRF would like to highlight the amazing work that FUNDAEC is doing in 2019 with the Project, "Leadership and Community Development". Through this project FUNDAEC is directly impacting:
- 40 university interns - 400 community leaders - 200 young beneficiaries with the aim of contributing to improve their employ ability conditions and their social and economic situation
