New school for El Brasil, Colombia

Event dates: 22nd August 2017 – 31st December 2018

In Ministry to Children (IMC) is raising money for In Ministry to Children

My story

El Brasil is a small hamlet in the La Guajira area of northern Colombia. The indigenous Wayuu people who live there suffer extreme poverty and malnutrition. Off the government radar, they lack even basic services. Severe drought in recent years has left them desperate.

The primary school at El Brasil was destroyed 18 years ago by the Farc guerrilla. Despite this, the teacher, Marbel Escorcha, has continued to run the school of 97 children in the most basic of settings.

Following the peace agreement, Essex based construction company A2O is contributing to the post-conflict era with a re-build of the school, in partnership with the charity IMC (In Ministry to Children).

Thanks to sponsorship already raised for the mud race event in September, and fundmatching by A2O, Phase 1 of the school project will be underway soon but there is still around £12 000 to be raised to complete the project.

You can also raise money for this charity simply by shopping online.

See for more information and don't forget to select your charity of choice as In Ministry to Children. Whenever you're ready to shop online, remember to go to the Give as You Live website first, use the Give as You Live bar on your PC or go through the App, then shop as normal!
And tell your friends and family!

Hello All,

Colombian School Rebuild ? Phase 1 Nearing Completion!!

Thanks so very much for your very generous donation for Colegio El Brasil.
Phase 1, rebuild of the existing classroom, is nearly complete.

The total of £8,570+ also covers half the new build for a second classroom.
This includes £4,000+ donated by A2O to match the total reached by Nov.17.

A massive thank you from all at A2O and IMC on behalf of the 90 children.
They will now receive a good education in dry and safe classrooms.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto In Ministry to Children.
