Our children have something important to tell you!!

The election day
The election day

It was a very intense day; the children should choose their representatives for the committee. There were so many good candidates, each one with great proposals, but at the end, all of them wanted the same thing: Become Children´s Land in a place where people can take care of their environment and their community.

After a few hours the elections were officially closed, it was time to count the votes; one by one the winners were announced. There were some tears, but a lot of smiles and joy, now a group of boys and girls will be watching for Children´s Land. They will be responsibilities for make the activities work,and will be the spokesmen that spread the voice everywhere, as Ana Karina does it: “I want to send a message to all the children of the planet, to all Children´s Lands, to people from AMICHOCÓ, take care of the trees, to plant, an do not mistreat the animals!”.
