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!!!!

Dream's Workshop

Water PArk
Water PArk

During the first week of July, Children had an art activity through which they thought about their dreams. It was a very positive and motivational activity for them and for us; after seeing those dreams we decide to try harder to get resources, volunteers, etc., so many of those dreams come true. SERVE IS A GIFT FROM THE UNIVERSE, SERVE IS A PRIVILEGE.

In the same month, we took the math contest winners to the Water Park in Bogotá; it was a very fun day for all.

In August we reinforce spelling and value appreciation and with great results for the improvement of children.

In september the kids planning a great party for the foundation director, they gave her more than 150 birthday cards 

For October, we are planning a Halloween celebration.

What we hope to do in the last quarter of the year is gather funds to pay the Christmas’s party and also gifts for Children, and the dinner for all families in Christmas Eve. 

Thanks all of you
