  • Description


    Our Foundation is a project of education in human values and ecology with 35 years of work in vulnerable sectors in 28 regions of Colombia and 15 countries of the world. It moves from collective construction workshops and recovery of the inner being from narrative, theater, music, dance, meditation, yoga, food, ecological walks and lectures oriented from sociology and history.

    We are located in the Owl Canyon in the climbing area in Suesca Cundinamarca, 2 hours from Bogotá. We live outdoors, in contact with nature and pure air at 2900 meters high.

    We live with Irene, director of the project and her two twins of 14 years educated at home: Simone and María. We are a diverse family and we are home to the passage of dogs in a vulnerable situation.
    To the farm raise groups of educators of children and tourists of environmental look.
