DLG donated 20 machines to Casa Libertad in Bogota, Colombia. An organization created by Colombian artist Claudia Bahamon, and teach them the basics for pattern and sewing. This is a non-profit entity founded in 2013 to dignify and improve the quality of life of the inmates and those have already been released in Colombia. It is intended to transform, vindicate and reconcile the prison population with civil society. 

In August of 2017, our first mission took us to Cartagena, Colombia. Our team paired up with The JuanFe Foundation.  That is why we invest he in physical, mental and emotional health, in job training and education, and in the employability of adolescent mothers in situations of extreme poverty and vulnerability.

We created a program that introduced 30 teenage girls the art of fashion and design, in addition to donating them equipment and tools for an atelier. The curriculum included the basic skill of using the sewing machine and inspiring in them a creative spark of possibilities. Our program focused on the value of sustainability, recycling and fair trade in fashion. We’ve offered the Foundation the many possibilities that creativity opens to their girls and their future, so they can later craft their own independence.

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.
