Founded by global-recording artist and 3D White Global Ambassador Shakira, a native of Barranquilla, Colombia, the foundation is dedicated to ensuring that every child can exercise their right to receive a quality education. The Pies Descalzos Foundation schools demonstrate a sustainable, replicable education model which provides quality education to the most vulnerable people and communities; thereby unlocking their intellectual and social potential.
The sizeable donation will go towards various Foundation projects, one of which is a new school built in Lomas de Peyé in Cartagena, Colombia, the sixth school developed by The Pies Descalzos Foundation. The 3D White donation will help with costs accrued towards the overall structure of the school as well as helping to finalize key details necessary towards its completion. The more than 14,000 square meters Lomas de Peyé school will boast 55 classrooms offering early childhood, primary and secondary education as well as technical training skills in specialized classrooms for older students. It will include a library, auditorium, administrative offices, cafeteria and sports facilities. The designs have been developed by the renowned Colombian architect Giancarlo Mazzanti, who has done important works in the Country. He based his proposal on the concepts of sustainability and bioclimatic design to ensure the welfare of all the generations that go to the Lomas de Peyé school.
