Wishing you a Happy Holiday and a joyful New Year in 2022.

As a thank you to all our wonderful partners, and to celebrate all our achievements this year we are giving a donation to Fundación de Atención a la Niñez (FAN) – The Child Care Foundation in Colombia.

Warm wishes from the Attensi team.

Why we support FAN

Attensi is on a mission to unleash people’s full potential.

We want to help people develop and be at their best, at work, and in life.

For many years Attensi has supported Fundación de Atención a la Niñez (FAN) – The Child Care Foundation in Medellìn and the broader Antioquia region in Colombia. FAN is an organisation that understands the importance of early childhood development, and who works to provide comprehensive care to children, adolescents and their families who live in extreme poverty and vulnerable economic and social situations in the region.

For the last 50 years FAN has been on a mission to offer children and adolescents better life opportunities. The foundation partners with national and local governments to serve children and their families through programs for play and learning, nutritional support, and psychosocial care. With more than fifty-thousand caregivers and adults trained as councellors, FAN provides occupational projects for adolescents and give guidance to caregivers in order to ensure a safe and conducive home environment for children.

We believe in this hands-on, and local approach to supporting development, and want to do our part in helping FAN in supporting the vulnerable communities of Medellìn, Colombia!

FAN wants to do more projects with meaning

  • The COVID pandemic hit the communities of Colombia hard and fast, and has made life even tougher for many of the children and families who were already living in vulnerable areas. The government restrictions and isolation requirements have shut down activities in many of the main sectors causing unemployment to rise and has created challenges in supporting children through the children centres.
  • During this time, FAN has expanded its activities to reach out to more children and more families, despite the challenging circumstances and have supported thousands of children through their comprehensive care programs and pedagogical support projects.
