Sogrome Colombia Project
International Grant Information
Boulder Flatirons Rotarian Kristin Wegner and former Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar met the Sogrome community in 2011 when living and studying in Colombia. She volunteered with the community on a Digital Narrative Project with Microsoft Colombia. Ruperto, an Arhuaco community leader and current Microsoft employee, reached out to Kristin to inquire about a school for his community and to explore ways Rotary can support the community.
