Cartagena, Colombia - 2017
The JuanFe Foundation
In August of 2017, our first mission to Cartagena, Colombia took place in partnership with The JuanFe Foundation.
We created a program that taught 30 teenage girls how to sew necessary items for themselves as well as their children, while introducing them to a new world of creativity in design.
DLG donated all of the necessary equipment for the program.
The curriculum included the basic skills of using a sewing machine, teaching anything from totes to baby bibs, diaper bags to baby carriers. Our program heavily focused on the value of sustainability and the usage of upcycled materials.
We’ve offered The JuanFe Foundation the many possibilities that creativity opens to their girls and their future, in hopes they can craft their own independence for years to come.
Messages from the Founders
DLG organized a fundraiser in the Fall of 2017, and with the profits, we were able to purchase and send Christmas gifts to the babies of the girls we met in Cartagena.
Months after our workshops, we were still in contact and wishing them the best.
Bogota, Colombia - 2018
Fundacion Accion Interna-Bogota
DLG donated 20 machines to Fundacion Accion Interna in Bogota, Colombia.
Fundacion Accion Interna-Bogota was founded by a Colombian artist, Claudia Bahamon, to dignify and improve the quality of life of inmates and those that have already been released in Colombia.
It is intended to transform, vindicate and reconcile the prison population with civil society.
