SUPPORT FOR RURAL EDUCATION
To join us is to feed dreams to watch them grow into musical notes, songs, and love its surroundings. Therefore, the Himalaya Agricultural Foundation supports La Libertad Educational Institution, which is the heart of Bitaco. It has a high school and six rural schools in the villages of Chicoral, El Retiro, El Diamante, Santafé, Zaragoza and the township of Bitaco. As part of its board of directors and a faithful ally of the institution, we developed a sustainable program, focused on education, infrastructure and quality, and we work as a team to formulate and implement its Cross-cutting Environmental Project.
There, the heart beats through the foundation teachers, who make students of all levels fall in love with their environment. They provide Training on Computer Science, Music, Sports and Environmental Education. They accompany them in their ecological projects, with the aim of sowing knowledge and harvesting dreams that contribute to their growth as persons and to society. Its reward is knowing that today the school is ranked number in the municipality and it is ranked fourth in Valle del Cauca.
The Bitaco township has three Community Homes supported by the Colombian Family Welfare Institute (ICBF by its Colombian acronym). At Fundación Agrícola Himalaya we join the effort, accompanying these homes and their community mothers on a permanent basis. Fundación Agrícola Himalaya’s Rural Education Support: Watch video
