The Elcielo Foundation is a non-profit entity, created on November 14, 2010. For more than 12 years, Elcielo has been committed to providing adequate resources to provide education and generate human development to people who are in situations of vulnerability, and economic or physical problems in our society. In the Elcielo Foundation, we assume that cooking peace is generating a social conscience and the kitchen is where we are giving hope to the country.

We believe that education is the strongest way to impact society. We trained soldiers wounded in combat as distraction therapy and job opportunity, advising new business units and employing come participants with the Elcielo Hospitality Group restaurants. The Foundation is a pioneer in the country in involving the issue of peace with gastronomy.

The programs led by the Foundation are focused on training populations in various areas of the kitchen that – for different reasons – have difficulties entering the working environment, allowing them to train and gain experience in our kitchens so that they can find employment in a simpler way.

In turn, forgiveness, reconciliation, leadership and teamwork are part of the workshops that the Foundations imparts for its members.

In addition, the Foundation leads and promotes initiatives for the education of low- income children as well as projects around caring for the environment and ecology. Planting trees, cleaning the seas and the proper use of resources are part of the activities that the Elcielo Foundation – together with the Kai Restaurant – have been developing to continue deepening its implementation in some territories of Colombia. The Elcielo Foundation has benefitted more than 2,000 people with training, workshops and projects carried out.
