About this project

The Covid-19 crisis is pushing girls into sexual exploitation at unprecedented speed. We need to be faster and more innovative in our response. XOCO is partnering with MDYM, a local grassroots organization in Colombia and world-class companies to empower girls to escape sexual exploitation and leapfrog to digital jobs of the future.

Our model is unique in two ways:

1) We are building the first shelter for girls and their babies in Cúcuta, as their way out of sexual exploitation and a pathway to freedom.

2) We are developing an innovative digital education model, combining edtech with digital skills development and on-the-job training to create new pathways to skilled jobs of the future.
