Hi!

On behalf of Juntos Construyendo Futuro, we are very thankful for your donations and your interest in our Project: Help Erradicate Child Labor in Colombia.

So far we have received 65 USD in donations for this project. With this limited amount of resources we have not being able to start activities with resources generated through GlobalGiving. In order to improve in this matter and reach our goal, we are re-thinking our strategy.

But our team is not standing still! We have been working in different projects with different partners and we hope we can improve our efforts thanks to GlobalGiving and your collaboration.

In our work to eradicate Child labor, this year we have been present in 11 municipalities with projects in areas such as child care; which includes education, health, nutrition and psychosocial support; improving the quality on education and mobilizing local actors towards this cause. Some of the activities we have been participating in with different public and private partners are:

- Child labor awareness campaigns through poetry and drawings with children.

- Cultural performances reaching more than 750 children and their families.

- Reflection time with about 1000 children about the negative implications of child labor in the children development.

- Awareness workshops with the children parents and beneficiaries of one the programs we have worked with.

- Publications of articles and divulging of information during the Child Labor awareness day during June

- Presentation of education opportunities to more than 100 children

- Health days, with different health consultations to children.

We wish we can continue having your interest and support in our work!

Kind regards,
