Alis Exists

#AlisExists

How do you build a “new life” when you are born without opportunities? Can you leave despair behind and project another destiny? Through a creative act, teenage girls who lived on the streets of Bogota give life to a fictional classmate. As reality prevails and fiction fades, the innocent game becomes a descent into hell where their luminous faces guide us to the depths of the dark world they once inhabited only to emerge with new skin. How to imagine a different life, break the cycle of violence and embrace the future?

GET INVOLVED

In partnership with Tiempo de Juego, a nonprofit organization based in Colombia, we are developing a program to provide support, psychosocial care, and productive opportunities to young people who have been institutionalized (both in protection services and juvenile justice centers).

Please join us, together we can create new opportunities and support for these teenagers coming out of the state institutions.

If you think you can help in anyway, or want to receive further information on how to get involved, please leave your contact details and message and we will get back to you.
