All over the world, the impact of COVID-19 is felt across the board in all industries, organizations, and societies. In Colombia, the rate of persons who have suffered varying levels of poverty is rising. According to a survey carried out by the Innovations for Poverty Action, families have cut down on their daily food consumption, with many going to bed hungry and unable to afford three square meals.
Even as entire economies and families have faded into the silence of poverty, there are still people and groups who support those in need and try to empower as many who have been affected by the pandemic. One of such well-meaning individuals and groups is Father “padre Carlos Yepes” and his Fundacion Amen Comunicaciones. Through the “You Deserve What You Dream” campaign, Father “padre Carlos Yepes” and the Fundacion Amen Comunicaciones they would be generating a new consciousness based on a “society of love”.
The “You Deserve What You Dream” campaign has been divided into two phases. The first phase that begins in August, aims to recruit volunteers who want to contribute their knowledge as advisers and facilitators for the creation of a ” think tank” of love.
The fist phase would be creating an online entrepreneurship school, where the same people affected by the pandemic who have lost their jobs or due to age are out of the labor market, receive from advisers and motivators the necessary tools to start new businesses.
As part of the appreciation for persons willing to support the good course of empowering families in Columbia by donating at least a pound of food, the Fundacion Amen Comunicaciones will be giving out books by Father “padre Carlos Yepes” for free.
