About

Welcome to
The Nest

We address the problem of teenage pregnancy, working to improve their living conditions and those of their children through actions that promote integral development and social inclusion. These programs are designed with an inclusive and equitable approach, seeking to provide tools that strengthen the knowledge and autonomy of adolescents, promoting their well-being and that of their children from an integral and holistic perspective.

We comprehensively empower teenage mothers and their children.

Strengthening lives through education, health and integral development in Armenia, Quindío, Colombia.

We are a non-governmental, social and non-profit program of Foundation ZonaJ. We promote the dignity and solidarity of people, to promote the protection of the rights of adolescent mothers and their children, who suffer from poverty, exclusion and inequality.

Through an intervention that allows an integral accompaniment during pre and postpartum, we invest in the development of their physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual capacities, as well as their parental skills so that they can face the challenges ahead with confidence, self-confidence and with hope in Jesus Christ as a model of life.

The Program

How we do it

Our support as a foundation to teenage mothers in inequality in Armenia, Quindío, is based on the following three main aspects.

Salud y bienestar

We design strategies adapted and focused to the needs of our population. We focus on “Maternal and Child Health and Personal Development” seeking to mitigate risks. This approach, centered on cultivating healthy foundations in the physical, psycho-affective and intellectual areas, marks the beginning of our program, preparing adolescents to embrace the responsibility of being mothers.

Education and family

We actively motivate and support the education of teenage mothers, encouraging them to complete high school and offering them training in key skills. We work to strengthen mother-child bonds, address family and couple relationships, and prevent gender-based violence. In this way, we create an environment conducive to the integral development of both mothers and their children.

Training for employment

We focus on the development of specific skills that allow teenage mothers in the program to access job opportunities aligned with the current market. This approach not only aims to increase their earning capacity, but also seeks to effectively balance family and work responsibilities. Our goal is to empower them with the tools necessary to build a solid and sustainable future.
