NEACOL'S mission is to generate resources to support social programs and unite efforts that will contribute to improving life conditions of Colombian children in need.
In 2013, a group of Colombians in Boston along with the consul of Colombia Monica Pinzon started a conversation on how to bring help to Colombian children affected by poverty. With the support of many Colombians and friends of Colombia the organization received the official 501 (c)(3) status in December 2014. Since the organization was born NEACOL has benefited over 14,600 children in 12 states of Colombia and Massachusetts. We have supported 12 nutrition programs, 10 education programs, and four health projects. NEACOL has great volunteer opportunities such as recruiting new members, organizing fundraising campaigns, evaluating projects, organizing events and managing teams.
