We believe that the world can be changed 2 people at a time

Bakongo is a social summer camp that has been around for 7 years. It is our dream to give unprivileged kids from difficult backgrounds that live in Colombia, the opportunity to live a magical and wonderful summer camp. To make it happen we need your financial support, the camp costs go to US$ 25.000 so if we reach our goal, please keep baking! 

For more information you can visit our web page: http:en.bakongo.org

Text in spanish is at the bottom, el texto en español está abajo :)

We bring together people with different backgrounds and opportunities and during a week we create a space that is:

  • Fun
  • Magical
  • Challenging

Bakongo is a social experience that will never be forgotten by the kids and young adults that come to experience it.

You can help us make it happen again! This camp will take place from June 30 to July 7 of 2013

What We Need & What You Get

We need the resources to bring 20 kids (twenty is our goal, the number of kids may vary, depending on how much we raise) from the slums of Bogotá to the magical place where Bakongo takes place, this is in Ráquira Silvestre a place almost 200km away from Colombia's hectic capital.

We need the funds for:

  • The kid's transportation.
  • The kid's stay at the natural reserve.
  • The kid's meals while they are in the natural reserve.
  • A change of clothes, many kids we take often don't have 2 changes of clothes.

You Could Get:

  • A postal card from past camps
  • A personalized video of the experience the kids had (once the camp is over)
  • A mention on all our social media channels (4000+ contacts)

The Impact

This camp is a reality thanks to dose who donate, and those who go to the camp. We need your help because we need to grow our founding base. If you help us, you will help us make an unforgettable week:

  • For the kids that come to this experience.
  • It's an inspirational journey that will change lives.

Other Ways You Can Help

Spread the word! Tell everyone you know about this magical experience in Colombia that unprivileged kids can have.

If you live or know someone in Colombia, tell them they can donate, or get their entrance as a young adult here.

DARING TO CHANGE THE WORLD HAS NEVER BEEN SO MUCH FUN!

EN ESPAÑOL: 

Nosotros creemos que el mundo puede ser cambiado 2 personas a la vez

Bakongo es un campamento con enfoque social que se ha realizado por los últimos 7 años. Es nuestro sueño darle a niños en situación vulnerable la oportunidad de vivir un campamento de verano mágico y fantástico.

Para hacer este sueño realidad necesitamos de tu apoyo económico, los costos del campamento son alrededor de 50 millones de pesos, algo como 25mil dolares, por eso si llegamos a la meta de los 5.000 siguenos apoyando!

Nosotros traemos y jungamos personas con historias de vida diferentes, y durante una semana creamos un espacio que es:

  • Divertido
  • Mágico
  • Retador

Bakongo es una experiencia social que nunca va a ser olvidada por los niños y adultos que lo viven.

Tu puedes ayudarnos a que esto sea de nuevo una realidad! Este campamento se realizará del 30 de Junio al 7 de Julio del 2013

Lo que necesitamos, y lo que te llevas

Necesitamos los recursos económicos para lograr llevar a 20 niños de los barrios periféricos o sectores vulnerables de Bogotá al mágico mundo llamado Bakongo. Este lugar queda en Ráquira Silvestre una reserva natural a casi 200km de la capital.

Necesitamos los fondos para:

  • El transporte de los niños desde y hasta el Ráquira Silvestre.
  • El costo de la estadía de los niños en la reserva natural.
  • La comida de los niños mientras son hospedados en la reserva.
  • Una muda de ropa, muchos de los niños no tienen más de una, y en las actividades esta se puede maltratar o dañar.

Lo que te llevas por apoyarnos:

  • Postales de campamentos pasados
  • Videos con agradecimientos personalizados (una vez se termina el campamento)
  • Una mención en nuestros canales de social media (4000+ contactos)

El impacto

Este campamento es realidad gracias a los que nos aportan y a los que van a vivir esa semana. Si nos ayudas estarás haciendo posible una semana inolvidable para:

  • Los niños que van a vivir esta experiencia.
  • Inspirar a los participantes a que tengan una semana que cambia vidas.
