Discover what we do and how you can help

Insiders Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides social and cultural programs to youth in the territory of Comuna 13, one of the most vulnerable and underserved neighbourhoods in Medellin, Colombia. Founded in 2019 by Sergio Moreno, who was born and raised in Comuna 13, the foundation was inspired by the strength and resilience of the people of Comuna 13, who overcame a violent past and transform their community into a thriving, cultural hub. Tourism over the past 5+years has provided economic stability and opportunities to the people. Insiders Foundation focuses on giving back to the community and helping to create a better future.

​The programs offered in the community help inspire and provide confidence to youth, creating new opportunities to them for a brighter future. The history and transformation of Comuna 13 is a daily reminder of what’s possible when we come together.


We provide tours in this area to help raise awareness and generate resources that will be invested back into the community. We walk the streets of our beloved neighborhood everyday with tourists who leave with knowledge of our history and transformation and feel inspired by our story.

Due to COVID-19, our current focus in providing food to families in need and education about how to prevent the spread of the virus.



Oral Hygiene for kids in comuna 13 Medellin

We executed this project in September of 2019. It was developed in comuna 13 where, believe it or not, some children do not have access to dental care. The main idea was that 210 children were given products, such as toothbrushes and floss, that would help their oral hygiene.

School uniforms for children of Comuna 13

Thanks to the donation of uniforms by Stephanie Miele and her husband Mark Fitzpatrick, two foreigners committed to helping this community, it was possible for 20 children to have new uniforms that they are required to wear to school.

Painting With Kids

The experience of painting houses in comuna 13 is getting better and better.
