Life in South America

To improve conditions for low-income residents of Caldas, Colombia, we must first understand what their lives look like today.

Do you have personal experience living, working or travelling in Colombia? Are you eager to hop on the internet and start researching life in South America? This Mission asks you to do some learning and sharing around what life is like in low-income communities throughout South America.

Some things to consider:
  • How can you show what life in Colombia (and more generally, South America) looks like? Images and videos will be extremely helpful here.
  • South America comprises a vast and diverse set of cultures, terrains, and people. Try to hone in on issues that are relevant for our challenge question, including health and wellness, financial access and literacy, and small business creation.
  • If you personally don’t have experience in South America, think about other ways you might learn – read newspapers, check out online blogs, even interview friends!

How could we connect the target group of low-income communities in Caldas with the reality of for instance a middle-class or wealthy area in a major city in Europe or north-america? and show them our world, reality and to let them ask us questions?
