Since 2012, Fundación Colunga has joined the commitment to promote a more just society, through partnerships with various actors: civil society organizations, the private world, the public and academia. All this in the search to elaborate proposals that contribute to public policy and the strengthening of civil society.
With special attention to children and adolescents, Colunga promotes social innovations aimed at generating a systemic change in critical areas such as overcoming poverty, protecting the rights of children and youth, improving the quality of education and promotion of new forms of inclusion (migration and social reintegration, for example). In this way, it develops innovative proposals that contribute to public advocacy and facilitate social transformation.
Colunga owes its name to a town located in the Principality of Asturias, in Spain, place of origin of the Cueto Plaza family, who set up this foundation to contribute to the social development of Chile and other countries in the region.
Our mission is to contribute to overcoming the poverty of children and adolescents, promoting social innovation, influencing public policies and strengthening the ecosystem of civil society.
We dream of fairer and more collaborative societies, for a better future of the new generations.
Through support to organizations that intervene directly in the field, Fundación Colunga manages to positively impact more than 25 thousand people.
