What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
1300 low income, migrant children affected by Colombia’s armed conflict that must be included into the educational system to recover their right to education. We aim to expand to other areas with high reception rates of displaced population and attend children in an affective, personalized way, preparing them with cooperative, participatory strategies of Escuela Nueva for their formal entry to school; engage community as part of the solution to reduce the risk of being forced into illegal groups
