During the month of July, a series of workshops were held with the NATUBAIYIBARI leaders belonging to the BARI indigenous community, who, according to the parameters established by the current emergency situation, accepted the arrival of the youth leader foundation (JLF) to their reservation under the PASSES OF HOPE program.

Our program is identified for having special emphasis in the education through the sport strengthening this way, the values, principles, the communication, the teamwork and the importance of the emotional and physical stability in children and young people, in addition to this, to stimulate the culture of our communities through the program previously named.

We thank the community for allowing us to reach their territory, especially their leaders, who made PASES DE ILLUSION EN LA COMUNIDAD BARI possible. Also to the collaborators of our foundation, who work hard to improve and strengthen the program.



The Legal Representative of the foundation Juventud Lider communicates the following:

1. Unscrupulous and irresponsible people have usurped our identity, using our name, logo, and screenshots of our pages to offer language courses and request money as a down payment for the course

2. FUNDACION JUVENTUD LIDER is a legally constituted entity with its main headquarters in Ciudad de Cúcuta-Colombia.

3. FUNDACION JUVENTUD LIDER is not offering any courses. Neither our ILLUSION PASS project sponsors this type of training.

4. The FUNDACION JUVENTUD LIDER is not responsible for this type of advertisement.
