Travel with Holt International to Bogotá, Colombia!

Join us in August 2020 for Holt's first vision trip to one of our newest country programs — Colombia!

After five decades of war, Colombia has just begun to emerge from a dark and brutal period in its history. In 2016, the government signed a peace treaty with the largest guerrilla group in Colombia, bringing an official end to a war in which over five thousand people were displaced from their homes, four times as many civilians as fighters died, and one in every three people killed was a child.

But Colombians are incredibly resilient.

On this trip, we will visit families whose lives have changed through the support and services they received as part of Holt’s family strengthening program in the capital city of Bogotá.

Through free daycare and preschool, personal development workshops, and job skills and parent training, sponsors and donors empower parents with the tools and resources they need to grow stable and self-reliant, and to help their children grow and thrive. Alongside local partners, Holt is also working to break and prevent the vicious cycle of violence in families, and provide healing for children and families recovering from five decades of war.

When you travel with Holt to Colombia, you will see how your generosity and compassion directly impact families, and how you help provide a better, more hopeful future for children.

Travel dates: August 17 – 23
