There are 5.7 million child laborers in Latin America, mostly working to support their families…but Barefoot Foundation offers income generating programs for parents so they don’t have to send their kids to work.



Currently, we have volunteer opportunities though our Colombia program. This program connects our programs at the Pies Descalzos Foundation with community volunteers and raises awareness about Colombia’s social situation.

People of all ages, backgrounds, income levels, and abilities can volunteer in Quibdó, Barranquilla and Altos de Cazucá, where we run our programs. The volunteer will be assigned to one of our programs based on the volunteer’s interests, experience and capabilities.

If you want to become a volunteer, please contact the Pies Descalzos Foundation:
