lente.pngEach time a Colombian manages to overcome their poverty, millions more are happy and filled with hope. The work done by the government of Juan Manuel Santos has not only tried to dignify the lives of the neediest in the country, but to give them a solid foundation for their conditions change once and forever substantially. All images and the lives we see on this page are part of this great history in which Social Prosperity says #OvercomingPoverty

"I lived in a house made of wood for four years alone with my four children since their father left us, in the municipality of Tocancipá. As a single mother I work in a bar to support my family. I was tired of paying rent and leaving my children with acquaintances where they could not express themselves freely, it was very humiliating for everyone, but thank God something wonderful happened to me. 

​​The mayor managed RED UNIDOS visit me and this changed our lives, the RED UNIDOS came to my house and supplied us with bunk beds, dishes and blankets. We have the mentality that we are poor and that this is a point of no return but you have to look for strategies to overcome poverty, things will not come to us when we complain about everything but when looking for better opportunities and with the help of God and the RED UNIDOS l will get over poverty so I can offer my children a better future"
