bacan Academy how we contribute to education

Education is the future of any generation.

bacan Academy: Empowering Youth, Transforming Communities

In rural areas of Valle del Cauca, Colombia, many young people face significant challenges in accessing quality education and pursuing meaningful careers. Economic hardships often force families to prioritize work over school, perpetuating a cycle of limited opportunities and unrealized potential. bacan Academy is on a mission to change that narrative by offering fully-funded educational programming tailored to the needs of underprivileged youth in agricultural communities.

Addressing the Root Cause of Absenteeism

One of the root causes of absenteeism among Colombian youth lies in the educational disparities prevalent in rural areas. Shocking statistics from 2019 reveal that over 45% of the total population involved in the agricultural industry had only completed primary education, while just about 12% reached secondary education. This lack of access to education perpetuates a cycle of poverty and limits opportunities for young people.

By empowering rural youth with vocational skills while emphasizing the importance of education, we aim to help them strike a balance between work and school, ultimately creating pathways to a brighter future.

bacan Academy: A Pathway to Opportunity

bacan Academy is more than just a vocational program; it’s a beacon of hope for young Colombians seeking to break free from the cycle of poverty. Through strategic partnerships with educational institutions and community organizations, bacan Academy provides comprehensive support to students aged 15-17, empowering them to pursue education while gaining valuable skills in agriculture and sustainable development.

Investing in Youth, Investing in the Future

At bacan Academy, we believe that education is a fundamental right, not a privilege reserved for the fortunate few. That’s why we offer full-ride scholarships to deserving students, covering academic expenses, transportation, and basic needs.

By removing financial barriers and nurturing talent, we aim to cultivate a new generation of leaders who are equipped to drive positive change in their communities.
