Who are we?
Formando Vidas is a Christian Ministry to children at risk in Bogotá, Colombia under the umbrella of Youth with A Mission International. We exist to honor God and share His love through regenerating street and pre-street children, their families and future generations.
In addition to direct work with street children, we have a strong call to raise awareness and sensitize pastors, congregations and society in general, convinced that the community as a whole need to know and put into action God’s perspective on injustice, mercy, and poverty. As part of this task, we cooperate with VIVA Network, thus collaborating with other Christian ministries that work with children at risk.

(ICBF) In the United States, Formando Vidas Inc. is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a public charity, having been approved as a 501 (c) (3) organization.
