Two Generations, Inc. began as an informal group of several U.S. citizens who came to the United States from Colombia many years ago. For some time before the official formation of the organization on August 14, 2008, one of the current members began sending used wheel chairs, walkers, portable bathrooms and canes to the elderly and handicap in his homeland. Soon after we were approached by a local catholic priest to see if we were interested in getting involved in another project in a very poor Colombian area where his congregation was doing mission work. We were immediately moved by the great need of the children of a small village in Guamal Colombia and its surroundings and decided to help.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time,
We are the ones we've been waiting for,
We are the change that we seek
To seek out the human, physical and spiritual development of children with scarce economic resources living in a marginalized sector of Guamal/ Magdalena in Colombia.
What efforts have we made?
When Two Generations, Inc. was started, we first had the idea that each of us would sponsor a child. We soon realized that this would only benefit a handful of children and we wanted to do more. Because there are so many children who lack food, clothing, and medical attention in Guamal, we knew that we had to do more. To more effectively meet the essential needs of the children of Guamal and its surroundings, we decided to build a community dining room. This idea became a reality when someone generously donated the money to buy the land allowing us to start construction. We followed by making our own monetary donations to begin building the actual facility. This community dining hall will now have a lasting effect on the community and the children providing a safe and healthy environment for children to spend time.
The efforts of building this safe haven while providing food, clothing, and medical supplies to the people of Guamal and other areas of Colombia make up our current efforts and missionary work.
