Using swap as a tool to recreate the social bond and revitalize slums in the heights of Bogotá
Communities in the southern mountains of Bogota are among the most disadvantaged in the capital. To cope with the situation, Jacqueline and her team had the brilliant idea of setting up swap banks. With the resources lacking, Jacqueline initiated the members of these communities to exchange services and skills. On the basis of swap, more than 15,000 families now benefit from access to education, vocational training, personalized support for project monitoring, medical care, day nursery services, etc.
