The Guajira is the desert region of Colombia where the Wayuu Indian Tribe communities are found. It’s estimated that there are around 300,000 Wayuu who live there.
This project started in a local church with around 50 children attending. Not long after, we purchased a piece of land and constructed a building now known as the Wayuu Centre.
The Wayuu Centre serves the local community and around 150 children of preschool age attend the project.
This work began in 2002 when Esther Silva, a psychologist living in Maicao, had a heart-felt desire to help the poverty-stricken children she saw all around her.
Esther approached David Taylor and together they began a community based project situated in a local church.
