30 years YMCA Risaralda


This year Horyzon’s partner organization YMCA Risaralda in Colombia celebrates its 30th anniversary. In the founding month of May, many events were therefore organized to commemorate its long-standing existence. Due to the Corona crisis, YMCA Risaralda moved the planned celebrations into the virtual world. For example, the director of YMCA Risaralda, Nelson Buitrago, transmitted his anniversary speech via video message.

During the past 30 years, YMCA Risaralda has been able to positively influence the living conditions of thousands of children, young people and their families through social programs and the strong commitment of volunteers. The training of youth leaders has always been one of the core competences of YMCA Risaralda.

We congratulate our partners in Colombia on their 30th anniversary with a video message by Isabelle Aebersold, programme coordinator Colombia.
