 Vive Foundation, Colombia

St Thomas' support the Vive Foundation in Colombia, led by Executive Director, Leonardo Ramírez.

In common with many places in Latin America, Colombia has seen huge church growth over the last few decades but the development of resources for children's work has not always kept pace. Vive seeks to fill that gap by training churches to run a "Funky Frog Club" (in Spanish "Club Rana Bacana"), where children learn to be disciples of Jesus, and by designing high-quality, contextualised Bible Teaching materials that are used in Colombia and beyond.

Vive mainly works in areas that were affected by Colombia's long running civil conflict where many children are at risk of violence, abuse and exploitation. Through the work of the Funky Frog Club, thousands of children and their families have got to know the life-giving gospel of Jesus.

If you would like to know more, please contact Fiona Christie. 

Church members can donate to Vive's work through the St Thomas' World Concern Group (please speak to its Treasurer, Miller Bogie) or donations may be directly to Vive via Latin Link at: https://www.latinlink.org.uk/appeal/vive-foundation.
