We plant hope with TiNi in Turbo

The joy of receiving a well-deserved award
The joy of receiving a well-deserved award

In January 2013 the TINI’s project ended in Turbo (Colombia). The project allows 60 children to have an educational environment to meet and protect the biodiversity of their region through the construction of a Children's Land called "Retrieving My Land". Since the delivery of their land, they created their own logo, a song, a vision of what they wanted to do and began to build their dreams.

Children were supported by a permanent group of 19 youth and 6 teachers "TiNi promoters" of an educational institution of Uraba, who were trained in the methodology TiNi. With this group of promoters were conducted recreational and artistic activities focused on environmental education and meetings to promote leadership, peaceful coexistence and the rights of children.

This process also linked parents and teachers of the school, who were invited to the meetings of socialization of project progress and promotion of the rights.

To complete the project, a contest was promoted on environmental stories that were published in the middle of a big festival with many guests. The festivals recognized the commitment of children with their environment, were presented the results of the experience and were awarded to the winners of the contest stories, as well as the creators of the song and the logo of the TiNi. 

Currently the TiNi "Retrieving My Land" has its own nursery for planting native plants and reforestation of the basin of the rivers, a small house for recycling, an office and all the tools required for children, youth, teachers and parents to continue working on his dream of a better world.
