A Journey of Impact: Bright Horizons' Colombian Expedition

On December 20, 2023, Bright Horizons embarked on a transformative journey to Colombia, a trip filled with purpose, passion, and profound connections. Led by a dedicated team, including Paulina, Dr. Aroon, Cesar Anzola, Amparo Suárez, and Fernando Baquero, our mission was clear: to make a meaningful difference in the lives of communities across Armenia, Barquisimeto, and Barranquilla.

Goals Achieved in 2023:

In 2023, Bright Horizons set ambitious goals, and through unwavering commitment and teamwork, we surpassed expectations. We reached out to communities in need, offering essential products such as toys, groceries, and dental care.

  • People: Our teams in Armenia, Barquisimeto, and Barranquilla worked tirelessly to connect with local communities. Notable individuals like Sara, Laura Manga, Nora Rodriguez, and many others served as vital points of contact, facilitating our outreach efforts.

  • Products: Across our destinations, we distributed vital resources. In Barquisimeto, we provided 150 toys, 22 bags of groceries, and snacks to nourish the community. Barranquilla received 305 toys, along with groceries and snacks to support local families. Meanwhile, in Armenia, we delivered a staggering 1200 toys, 200 bags of groceries, and 203 units of dental care products, ensuring that essential needs were met.

  • Price: Despite the financial commitment involved, our team embraced the opportunity to make a tangible difference, understanding that the true value lies in the impact we create.

  • Place: Our journey took us to new horizons in Armenia, Barranquilla, and Barquisimeto, strengthening bonds and forging lasting connections with communities far and wide.

  • Promotion: Through collaborations with NP Dance Studio and the involvement of Dr. Aroon's friends, we expanded our reach and garnered increased interest in our cause. This included fundraising activities and engaging the community through various channels, including social media platforms.

Bright Horizons' Goals for 2024:

As we reflect on our achievements in 2023, we set our sights even higher for the coming year. Our objectives for 2024 encompass both expansion and enrichment, aiming to increase our impact and reach across Colombia.

  • Increase Coverage: We aim to expand our presence in Armenia by 20%, extending our reach and impact within the community. Additionally, we plan to provide English teaching to locals and Spanish instruction to visitors, empowering individuals with valuable language skills.

  • Offer Courses: Through virtual platforms, we intend to offer courses on social work and leadership, equipping individuals with the tools and knowledge to effect positive change in their communities.

  • Promotion: Emphasizing the importance of outreach and awareness, we will focus on promoting Bright Horizons through various channels, including our website, Instagram, Facebook, and other social media platforms.

  • Fundraising Activities: Building on the success of past initiatives, we will organize fundraising events, such as toy days and dental care drives, in collaboration with NP Dance Studio and other partners.

Expected Growth and Dreams:

As we envision the future, our dreams extend beyond mere numbers and statistics. We dream of a Colombia where every individual has access to essential resources and opportunities for growth. We dream of communities united in purpose and empowered to create positive change. And above all, we dream of a brighter tomorrow, fueled by compassion, collaboration, and the unwavering commitment of organizations like Bright Horizons.


Our journey to Colombia was more than just a trip; it was a testament to the transformative power of collective action and the profound impact we can make when we come together with purpose and passion. As we look ahead to the future, we remain steadfast in our commitment to serving communities in need and spreading hope and positivity wherever we go. Together, we can build a brighter, more inclusive world for all.
