About Give To Colombia
Give To Colombia is a US and Colombia-based nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3)
status that aims to create, promote and facilitate the channeling of resources, talents
and technologies from the US towards sustainable, scalable, high-impact social projects
in Colombia in the areas of Education, Economic Development, Water & Sanitation,
Health and Environment. Using an innovative model, G2C articulates and supports
between entities in the public, private and international sectors, with the aim of generating
social investment solutions that benefit Colombia’s most vulnerable populations and
promote peace and prosperity within the country.

Letter from the executive director
Dear Friends of Give To Colombia,
At Give To Colombia, we strive every day to prove why Colombia is
different. We work to improve our understanding of our own country
so that others will associate it with growth, change, and raw talent.
And most importantly, we are proud to share our time-tested idea that
Colombia is a country worth investing in, as any investment made in
the country can yield a great return in the field thanks to the
overwhelming talent of its people.
This idea of return is evident in the very structure of our organization,
which with an annual operational budget of approximately $300,000
dollars has been able to leverage $2 to $3 million dollars per year
towards social projects. In 2012, we surpassed this target, raising
$4.4 million, and impacting over 30,000 Colombians in conditions of
vulnerability.
I would like to thank our donors for being an integral part of our work
in 2012. Without their help, we would not have been able to support
important projects in the areas of Education, Economic Development, Health, and the Environment, providing
access to housing, nutrition, sanitary bathrooms, academic opportunities, environmental awareness, hygiene
education and entrepreneurship training to thousands of Colombians located in 16 regions throughout the
country.
It is also worth noting that in 2012 we were able to improve our relationships with international donors, local
partner foundations, and the Colombian public sector, maximizing the impact of our projects.
Moreover, in March of 2012, we signed a $2 million dollar agreement with the Inter-American Development
Bank to design and implement a comprehensive long-term project that aims to provide scalable and
sustainable access to basic water supply and sanitation services in the poorest, most rural areas of Colombia.
I’ve decided to highlight this project because it demonstrates our commitment to deepening our impact in
Colombian society. We are confident that by working with leading foundations and contractors in the field, we
will be able to bring innovative and sustainable water and sanitation solutions to those who need it most in the
most remote, rural areas of Colombia.
Thanks to our considerable experience in the Colombian social sector, we are able to identify projects in which
Colombian talent achieves the maximum return on your investment. Next year, we plan to continue to
demonstrate that when you invest in Colombia, Colombia Gives Back.
Our utmost gratitude goes out to those who allow us to contribute to the improvement of Colombia. We hope
we can count on your support in the future.
Sincerely,
Angela Maria Tafur
Executive Director

Our Added Value
At Give To Colombia, our work begins with an assessment of the needs and
inclinations of our donors. We offer advising services to the donors in order
to ensure that their social investment benefits initiatives that are tailored to
them.
We maintain a portfolio of initiatives of local foundations focused in four
areas, which are selected based on criteria related to their operational and
administrative capacity, and their ability to efficiently manage resources
while guaranteeing transparency. To select these foundations, we perform a
due diligence process in which we thoroughly revise legal and financial
documents of our potential partners.
Our work with the local foundations is based on mutual respect and
teamwork, so that we maximize the financial and human resources of our
local allies. Once a donation is approved, we rigorously monitor projects that
are committed to specific, measurable goals within a set timeframe. We
assess our allies’ effectiveness regularly, in order to achieve meaningful and
measurable impact. We also help our local allies comply with international
donors’ requirements in terms of evaluation and reporting. 6
OUR manifesto
We believe that the pinnacle of giving comes when you receive something
in return. This belief becomes a tested reality in a place where you get back
much more than what you put in: Colombia.
Colombians are a special kind of people, full of bravery and determination,
willing to overcome obstacles and rise above it all.
We invite you to become our on-the-ground partner in “Give To
Colombia”: a non-profit foundation held to the highest standards of
transparency and accountability.
Our model is a guide to the inner workings of the country and a
resource for the most efficient ways to operate.
And so we ask: Are you receiving the most return for your
social investment?
In the spirit of the transparency of our foundation and the unmatchable
determination that marks our country, we can make a promise few others
can deliver: the maximum social return on your investment.
Give to Colombia.
Colombia Gives Back.

Beneficiaries: 5,000

Local Ally: Fundación Hablando con Julis
This project included an in-kind donation of a server
that allowed the Hablando con Julis Foundation
(HCJF) to be more efficient and provide better
service to their end users, supporting people with
disabilities that use their innovative software.
Hablando con Julis is a Colombian non-profit
organization whose mission is to support the
learning processes of students with communication
or learning difficulties by developing a user-friendly interactive ICT tool that facilitates these children’s
education and their communication with others.
The Hablando con Julis program offers comprehensive software for students with hearing disabilities,
as well as those with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy or learning disabilities. It combines
augmentative and alternative communication as a means to enhance or supplement speech and
writing through images, sound and signs.
After using the software during a period of one year, students showed significant improvement in oral
comprehension, reading comprehension, writing, ICT skills, class attention, and the ability to follow
teacher’s directions in bi-monthly evaluations. In addition, the evaluations demonstrated that teachers
also improved their use of ICTs (computer, interactive whiteboard and use of software) as a tool for
educational settings.

Featured Project:
Financial Literacy & Entrepreneurship Program
Beneficiaries: 400
Donor: Levi Strauss Foundation
Local Ally: Corporación Interactuar
The majority of apparel workers in Medellín earn a minimum wage that in many cases constitutes the
entire family´s source of income. The lack of sufficient funds to satisfy their families' needs, combined
with the poor management of these funds, leads these families to face high-debt, little capacity to
acquire housing, education, or a business and a lack of ability to save or generate additional income.
With this in mind, Give To Colombia and Interactuar have been working together for the past four
years in Antioquia, mainly with Levi's women garment factory workers, providing access to financing
of income-generating activities. The program provides financial literacy training, matched savings
and support for micro-enterprise development through a program oriented towards creating culture
of saving, and at improving participants’ household incomes and quality of life. More specifically, this
program seeks to provide these vulnerable families with the necessary tools to acquire assets
through financial literacy workshops, a savings program and the promotion of entrepreneurship
initiatives.
The impact of this initiative has not only been significant in terms of the empowerment and resilience
that beneficiaries have developed, but in terms of the commitment of the participating factories
regarding their employees' well-being, quality of life beyond their immediate job, and the image and
perception of Levi Strauss. With this project, Levi Strauss has dramatically changed, not only in
terms of the conditions of its workers, but that of the entire apparel industry of Medellín, creating
healthy employees that can shift to other industries and areas when production levels are low or can
count on income earned from having their own microbusinesses.
Testimony:
“Thank you Interactuar and Give To Colombia for supporting me with consulting services. These
helped me improve my business and have a more global vision of it. My business has improved and I
am looking for a new location where I can offer more products to clients in the sector. Thank you so
much!”

Featured Project:
Responsible Mining
Beneficiaries: N/A*
Donor: Anonymous
Local Ally: Alliance for
Responsible Mining (ARM)
Approximately 2,500 tons of gold are mined
around the world every year. Of this, between
200 and 300 tons originate from Artisanal and
Small-scale Mining (ASM), which provides
almost 90% of employment in the gold mining
sector. ASM provides employment and income
opportunities to about 15 million miners and
their families in developing countries of Latin
America, Africa and Asia. In most cases, these artisanal and small-scale miners (many of whom
are women and children) work in unsafe and exploitative working conditions, and live in extreme
poverty. As highlighted in Fairtrade and ARM’s Gold Policy Report, ASM mining, as it is currently
practiced in most areas, often involves the unsafe use of mercury and other toxic substances,
deforestation, discrimination against women, the use of child labor, poor working conditions and
exploitative supply chains.
To combat this, ARM, in alliance with Give To Colombia, implemented the Responsible Mining
initiative to address two of ARM’s current priorities, which focus on making fair market
opportunities more accessible to artisanal and small-scale miners and ensuring that global
supply chain reform initiatives incorporate a fair
market approach and consider the rights of
community miners. The initiative focuses on increasing

Featured Project:
Hand Washing Program
Beneficiaries: 400
Donor(s): Covidien and APC Colombia
Local Ally: Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC), hand washing, along with the storage of
potable water, access to safe drinking water, and basic sanitation are the most efficient ways to reduce
the transmission of infectious diseases, such as diarrheic diseases, acute respiratory infections, and skin
and eye infections, among others, in communities. An adoption of appropriate hygiene measures,
accompanied by education on this subject, could reduce the incidence of acute diarrheal disease and
and acute respiratory infection rates by up to 45%, according to the World Health Organization.
In response, Give To Colombia, in partnership with Covidien, the Presidential Agency of International
Cooperation (APC Colombia), and the Community Health Division of Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá,
developed a project to bring a healthier culture of hand washing across Colombia through a “hands-on”
training program. The program trained approximately 400 social workers in Bogotá, Cali, and Medellín,
to act as multipliers of a strategy on hand hygiene for the prevention and control of infectious diseases,
directed at vulnerable communities.
Testimony: “The communication strategy is well presented since it is an activity that can be performed in
a short amount of time and allows people to be creative and dynamic.”

Water and Sanitation
Comprehensive Models of
Access to Water and Sanitation
Donor(s): Inter-American Development Bank (IADB),
AquaFund, Japanese Government
Funds Raised: $2 million
In March of 2012, Give To Colombia was selected by the Inter-American Development Bank as the
Executing Agency for the implementation of the project “Comprehensive Models of Access to Water
and Sanitation.” The purpose of the project is to design and implement demand-driven and service
oriented pilot programs that will seek to provide scalable and sustainable access to basic water
supply and sanitation services in the poorest and most vulnerable areas of Colombia. The project
focuses on the following areas:
Promotion of hygiene and sanitation in schools located in rural areas.
Individual solutions for potable water and sanitation in various rural areas.
In-house connections (wash basin, bathroom and shower) for households in suburban areas.
17
The project is currently in the implementation phase and is planned for completion in
December of 2014.
Transforming
Philanthropy
Transforming Philanthropy was created in 2010 as an initiative that seeks to promote and facilitate collaborative
and strategic social investment among Colombia’s leading families and economic groups, build on the capacity
of the social sector, and motivate public-private partnerships to achieve high social impact. For the past two years,
two forums and various regional workshops have been organized with the goal of disseminating ideas, best practices,
and lessons learned among this group.
The initiative provides participants with the know-how on utilizing knowledge to structure implementation plans that
translate into high-impact social investments in the areas of Health, Education, Economic Development and
Environment. In this way, Transforming Philanthropy achieves its core objective of promoting and increasing social
investment in Colombia.
The initiative includes regional seminars during which participants explore innovative approaches to maximize the social impact of
their investments and become social investors who, under a theory of change model, commit to supporting long-term
interventions and increasing the flow of strategic investments into the country's social sector.
Events 2012
Site visit to the The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) Valle del Cauca Water Fund in November of 2012, featuring Mauricio Bedoya and Alejandro
Calvache of TNC as leaders.
On January 27 and November 2, Transforming Philanthropy hosted and organized two Regional workshops: one on Impact
Investing and the other on Sustainable Capitalism in Bogotá and Cali, respectively. The events included expert speakers and
leaders in the field of philanthropy, including Jed Emerson, Laura Herman, Aurelio Ramos, and the heads of private, corporate and
family foundations like Manuel Jose Carvajal, Claudia Garcia and Esteban Piedrahita.
In addition, the workshops have expanded to include site visits with Colombian philanthropists. On
November 3rd, with the support of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) a site visit was organized to TNC´s Valle
del Cauca Water Fund.
These events were organized to follow up the knowledge gained during the past Annual Forums and to keep encouraging
opportunities of collaboration and creation of networks. We invite anyone who is interested to participate in these transformative,
engaging, and collaborative sessions that occur throughout the year.
