   Our Name
   The Foundation honors the name of a prominent Colombian Philologist,
   Humanist, and Educator  J. M. Restrepo-Millán (1894-1955).
   It takes the Latin word educare in its original meaning of "pulling out",
   "bringing out from within", as a basis of all its actions.

   In all our interventions we value:
   • The sense of community
   • The intervention of participants
   • The care for the environment

   Fields of work
   Assessment, design, implementation and/or evaluation of projects
   related to education, socio-cultural development and infrastructure
   that foment human and community development.

      schools in low-income communities interested in developing or
      improving the school’s library. The program provides four services:
