Ciudadela Sucre, Bogotá


GIVING CODE:  AMS1000

REGION:  South America


DESCRIPTION

The Ciudadela Sucre neighborhood is located in the southwest hills on the south side of Bogotá, Colombia. It is a very poor neighborhood where the streets are not paved and many of the houses are made from recyclable material. Most of the the people that live in the community are under-employed or un-employed. They may work as ambulatory street vendors, domestic maids, or other menial low paying jobs. There is a significant child and youth population in the neighborhood. There are many social evils such as juvenil delinquency, the sale of drugs, and armed gangs.

At the present time, the church meets in the home of one of the members. The church has already acquired a property and hopes to build a multi-purpose facility. The need is great and the time needs to be soon. Many neighborhood youth hide on the church property to do drugs and it has become a dangerous situation for the neighbors to the property.
