A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER Dear friends, In May 2013, Lucy, one of the beneficiary mothers in Bogota suddenly became sick. A short time afterwards, she passed away from cancer. She was only 55 years old. Lucy had been taking care of her two granddaughters since their mother had died tragically a few years ago. Lucy's death was quite a shock for everyone, especially because it happened so quickly. Staff, clients and volunteers mourned her death because she was so loved by everyone. Going through this tragic time made it clear to me how all of us in the foundation, whether in the US or Colombia, have became a close knit community and distance does not get in the way. The support and love during the time of loss made it apparent. Lucy was a warm, gentle and kind woman who was always smiling. She definitely made an impression and changed the lives of those who came in contact with her. During the mission trip, her granddaughters, Laura and Catalina, spoke to the missionaries. They expressed positive and grateful words toward the foundation and all those who supported them. When I heard them speaking, I realized that the foundation is doing much more than just providing assistance to a few people. We are sharing our lives and building a community and family. In giving and receiving, we are all being transformed. Now Laura and Catalina have the support of their peer families, the psychologists, social workers, volunteers and, of course, their sponsors to help them through this difficult time. They have a safe haven that has been provided to them through the efforts of all benefactors and volunteers that throughout the years have made this foundation possible. Indeed, we are learning that it takes a village to raise a family. For this reason, I want to thank each one of you who supports our cause because each year I am able to see how we are changing lives.

Hern谩n Boh贸rquez Founder Rise and Walk Foundation Inc. Maria Catalina, Laura and Lucy (R.I.P.) 3


SPEAKER—MICHELE SERINO

Michele and Bryan—Mission Trip 2013

Michele Serino was a Kindergarten Teacher before she started her career in Human Resources over 30 years ago. Currently, Michele is a Human Resources Business Partner with AXA-Equitable, a French owned Financial Services Firm in Manhattan. Through her close relationship with Michael Calomino, Michele was introduced to the Rise and Walk Foundation several years ago. Since that time Michele has supported our organization with donations, 2 Sponsorships and joining us on two mission trips to Colombia, where she volunteered her time working with the Staff and the children in the Foundation. In her personal life Michele spends much of her time with her family. She has three children, six grandchildren and 2 foster grandchildren. When she is not with her family, Michele enjoys theatre and traveling and does both whenever time allows. Some of her travel time was spent in Haiti doing volunteer work after the earthquake and in Cuba with the Cuban Aids Project. 4


WHAT DO WE DO? We offer four different programs in our center in Bogotรก:

1

THE COUNSELING SERVICE PROGRAM offers psychological assessments, one on one counseling sessions, family therapy, vocational workshops, pet therapy, as well as workshops geared towards personal and intellectual development.

2

THE SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM seeks to improve the quality of life for our beneficiaries. It performs family interventions, teaching, and community organizing. We also offer our beneficiary families immediate assistance for urgent basic needs such as food and healthcare.

3 4

THE SMALL BUSINESS PROGRAM helps the parents of the children to start independent small businesses. Through the creation and implementation of self-sustaining micro-business projects, we seek to improve their income and, ultimately, help our families achieve financial independence. THE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM includes homework assistance, subject tutoring, English Club, recreational activities, sports, and arts and crafts workshops.

5


ACTIVITIES AND ACHIVEMENTS 2012-2013 Celebrating Christmas in 2012 The families celebrated Christmas with traditional novena prayers. Each person received Christmas presents sent by the sponsors in the United States. The children received clothes, shoes and toys and other families received a variety of gifts. The childern and their families were all very happy and thankful for their gifts.

At the end of 2012, the Foundation also recognized families for their responsibility, dedication and participation in our programs. 6


Doing Christmas Differently St. Paul’s on the Green Church in Norwalk designated Rise and Walk Foundation for the “Doing Christmas Differently” program for the second year. The parishioners donated or purchased school supplies for one of the beneficiary children of our foundation. The Foundation sent an acknowledgement of the gift to whoever was designated by the donor. They also sponsored some children or families. This project raised $4000 and 40 backpacks filled with needed school supplies for the children. We thank Fr. Nicholas Lang, rector, Mother Cynthia Stravers and the parish family of St. Paul’s for their continuing support of Rise and Walk Foundation.

New Backpacks for New School Year

The children in Bogota received the backpacks filled with schools supplies sent by St. Paul’s on the Green in Norwalk. The kids started their school year at the end of January.

7


Opening of the New Center In late 2012, the Foundation moved to a new location within the same neighborhood. The larger updated building enables us to offer more programs and childrens’ activities in a more organized and spacious environment.

Spanish Students raise funds

On January 29th, Trinity Catholic Middle School honored Rise and Walk Foundation at their International Dinner for a second year. It is a special evening that is organized by the middle school students and was attended by over 60 people. The students and their families provided a multi-cultural menu and showed their dedication to helping the needy. All profits will be donated to Rise and Walk Foundation. We thank teachers, Mrs. DeSantis, Mrs. Colihan, and their Spanish students for their support and participation. The students are pen-pals with our children in Bogota. The children of the Foundation are very excited to get their pen-pal letters and will respond now that their winter break is over.

Supper of Mercy Dan and Maria Renzulli hosted a Supper of Mercy at their home. It was well attended and all had a great time. They provided great food. The collected money was donated to the Foundation. We are grateful to Dan and Maria for their hospitality and thanks to all who participated. 9


Mothers Day Celebration On May 4th we head our Annual Mass and Breakfast honoring mothers. The event was at St. Margaret’s Shrine in Bridgeport and Fr. Edicson Orozco celebrated the mass. After a delicious hot breakfast, the rosary was said in the lovely grottos and gardens. It was a beautiful and inspiring day in honor of the Blessed Mother and all mothers living and deceased.

Successful First SoirĂŠe May 18th we held a cocktail party and silent auction. It was an elegant night of cocktails, wine and delicious appetizers. We had a wonderful opportunity to show people the work of Rise and Walk Foundation and the beautiful children and families we serve. There were about 90 in attendance, and for many it was the first event they have attended for our foundation. We are grateful to Steve Habetz for his generosity in allowing us to use his beautiful home for this event. 10


English and Art Classes Throughout the year children enjoyed the English and Art classes offered by the Foundation. These classes allow each child to learn different ways to express their ideas and dreams. The classes have been well received and we have seen an increase in the number of children from the neighborhood requesting to participate.

11


Life Project We offered workshops on the theme, "Life Project," where each child presented their story through a video or written report. The workshops enabled them to discover more about themselves and express their dreams to others.

Evangelization We held evangelization sessions for the beneficiary families that serve as a forum for reflection and expressing feelings. The families are also able to share and learn more about God through activities that are fun as well as inspirational.

12


Workshops for Mothers and Children We support personal and academic growth of the mothers and children of the Foundation through many different workshops around family and individual development. These workshops are conducted by our psychologist and social worker.

13


Marketing, Events and Publicity Rise and Walk Foundation has been improving the marketing strategies by using different forms of media such as websites, social networks, signage and printed media. During the week of the Mission Trip, we held a Bingo event. This has become a regularly anticipated event for the team and the community in which we serve. We participated in the Tenth Convocation Award for Early Childhood from the Éxito Foundation. We hope that this will result in more awareness of the Foundation leading to more donations and grants.

Bingo 2013

14


Happy Moments that Change Lives In 2013, we celebrated many important dates including Women's Day, Mother's Day and Birthdays.

Graduation of the Beneficiary Mothers Some beneficiary mothers of the Foundation received a diploma for completing courses we offered in business. These classes were conducted in partnership with the University Uniminuto. 15


Case Management and Home Visits The social worker continuously supports families in their development and visits each home to assess the needs of the families and connect them to appropriate resourses.

16


Photography Classes

This year we offered a new project through a photography class. We called this Project "“Through the Eyes of a Child." The project allows us to instruct children in basic concepts of photography and gives them the opportunity to demonstrate their reality through photos. We held a photo exhibit during the Bingo in June of 2013, where we displayed the childrens’ art and they explained the meanings behind their photos. 17


Mission 2013 During the week of the 15th to the 22th of June, the mission trip was held. Missionaries and children shared unforgettable moments and had many activities together such as English, art and music classes. They also had the opportunity to visit with senior citizens at the center for the elderly, Hogar San Mateo.

18


Day at the Playland Amusement Park During the mission trip, the children had the opportunity to enjoy the amusement park, Playland. The missioneers and the staff in Colombia shared time with the children and had a fun day of thrill rides, video games and activities.

19


Team work Colombia—USA While on the mission trip, the missioners from the United States had meetings with each staff member. This time was spent discussing what was working well and areas that may need more focus or change.

20


Tribute to Lucy Gonzalez This year we pay special tribute to Lucy Gonzalez, one of the beneficiary mothers of the Foundation who passed away in May of 2013. Lucy always had a smile on her face and had a lot of joy to share. We will always remember her fondly and will continue to support her granddaughters, Maria Catalina and Laura. May she rest in peace.

María Catalina Duarte Patiño wrote of her grandmother: “She was a wonderful flower that blossomed in each one of us, with her joy, laughter and happiness. This flower was a woman blessed by God, always thankful for having Rise and Walk Foundation by her side. Today I thank God for putting this Foundation in our path that so lovingly has welcomed us, given us support and always allows us to be there. The wonderful flower who was my grand mother keeps on blooming in the garden of our hearts and will always enlighten us from heaven to going forward.”
