Like the rest of the world, we at CEPALC have adjusted the way we do radio programs and workshops this year to continue doing this important work while protecting each other during the pandemic; allowing children to stay at home while still working together and learning about human rights, peace, and mental health. 

With your help, we will continue teaching peace in Colombia and working with children to defend their rights however, this project page on GlobalGiving for Empower 300 Colombian Children: Teaching Peace, will be closing. We want to be clear that the project page will no longer be active on this platform, but CEPALC's work with children in Colombia will continue!

We are happy to inform you that CEPALC started another project on GlobalGiving: Teach 400 Indigenous Children: Justice in Colombia. We encourage you to check out this project and continue supporting CEPALC. Please consider donating to this new project for #GivingTuesday here on GlobalGiving on December 1, 2020.

Thank you for supporting CEPALC over the years. You have taught children in Colombia peace and the meaning of solidarity. You, and supporters like you, have invested over $10,000 USD in protecting and empowering children in Colombia. Thank you.

Despite very serious social, cultural, and economic problems that the Covid 19 pandemic has created in our country, from CEPALC we have maintained training, monitoring  activities with different children's groups, mainly in Bogotá and the Boyacá department. Workshops have studied sexual, religious, and ethnic minority rights in Colombia. Children must understand serious consequences discrimination and exclusion bring to build peace and justice in our country. Our children  promoting solidarity values for angry, sorrow people torn by big economical, social, political crisis.

Children families live in extreme poverty situations aggravated crises, however children find our workshops, activities reason to maintain hope and give some joy to their lives

Boys and girls participating in the project have had to adapt to new realities imposed by the pandemic covi 19. However, in areas such as Suba (Bogotá), with the help of CEPALC advisers, they have been training on theater plays, taking advantage of means such as cell phones to communicate. Likewise, they have created radio programs that are being broadcast by CEPALC radio station, taking advantage of our advisory computers that work as a broadcast station.


These programs cover topics such as children's rights, women's rights, respect for minority rights, environmental protection, care and social discipline in a pandemic.
Some children's groups have produced short videos on these same topics.

.
We can, then, affirm, project children are facing pandemic crisis with hope, courage and great sense of social solidarity.
