Six civil society organizations with different purposes and missions, related to the areas of overcoming poverty, childhood, education and social cohesion dialogue have been incorporated into our community.

ColungaHUB unites non-profit organizations with a common mission: to carry out the transformations that Chile and Latin America need. It currently houses more than 30 foundations and each day adds new members to the network.

"We have put a high focus on organizations that add value to the hub's ecosystem. We believe that those that have arrived now have a great potential to connect with the organizations that are currently and also among them, "says Olivia Schulze, community coordinator.
