We are delighted to announce that in December 220 Christmas gifts (toys and clothes) were given to children who participated in the various programs actively. We want to thank all our donors who helped us throughout 2014.
New year came with big challenges, local schools asked us to recieve 18 new children that don't know how to read or write, we are short of volunteers and we have to reject many aplications because we lack space and teachers. 

But with challenges, changes comes so 2015 is about Leadership, we started our Leadership School "Pintela y se la Coloreo" we are finishing our first trimester with great results in our specific programs.
We began "The adventure of Knowing Me", a program that seeks to strengthen self-esteem, self-respect and communication in youth.
"Somos Capazes", (We can do it) is helping our oldest boys (10 - 16 years) reinforcing the theme of conflict resolution and self-knowledge.

"Hoy eres TU, ELLOS son el mañana" (Today is YOUR time to build THEIR future), like in a family where older children help younger ones and every one has to help, we are giving our youth tasks. They are hepling each other with school work and they take turns serving meals. Focusing not in yourself but in others needs and being usefull and recognized has given them extraordinary results!

Our program "Pintemos, Pintando" (Lets draw Pintando) empowers our work team and volunteers, we are preparing them so they can help design our organization present and future. This year we did a week summit with all our team working in leadership skills.
Next trimester we are willing to start five new programs: "Las Matemáticas te Pintan" (Math draw you), "Pintando Futbol" (Painting soccer), "Pintando mi Futuro" (Painting my future), "Pintando Relaciones" (Painting relationships) and "Maestría de Vida" (Parents Leadership school).
We are looking forward for GlobalGiving next Bonus Day in May 13th, our Fundraising Goal that day is $2.800 which will help us implement the new programs! We really count on your support!!

Helping children draw a new path to their future

First and foremost, we would like to express our continued feelings of gratitude towards everyone who has supported this project. Your donations continue to make a significant impact on the lives of children who would otherwise not have access to the wonderful learning environment, nutrition, and resources that are provided by our program.  Your donations continue to allow PINTANDO CAMINOS to not only provide basic necessities for these at-risk children such as breakfast, psychological services, and school support, but to also equip them with skills that will make them well-rounded conscientious adults, able to break the circle of poverty. 

This trimester we participate in the 5th Responsible Summit and were recognized by the University of "Los Andes" and Chevron for our new project "Pintela y se la coloreo", in this project we empower our boys and girls to go beyond the academic skils and activities that we develop inside PINTANDO CAMINOS and go to their own environment and be leaders. 

We also have visitors from the World Apostolic Congres of Mercy, they came all around the world (Tanzania, Brazil, France, Venenzuela) to meet our children, we were very excited so we prepared traditional dances and other artistic activities to welcome them. 

Next 15th of October Global Giving is matching funds, we encorage you to support us early in that great campaign were your help will have double impact!!!!
