Working hard to achieve our goal

Children having fun instead of working!
Children having fun instead of working!

Our organization has done a hard work to eradicate child labor for more than 10 years. We have built strong
partnerships with national and international organizations to be able to benefit many more children and youth with our services.

We are constantly looking at our environment and observing our internal processes to ensure that children and young people are withdrawn from child labor. We have a highly qualified team to achieve our goal in a more efficient each time.

Through arts, sports and scientific clubs we get children and young people to invest their time in learning and having fun instead of working. Our work is done hand by hand with the parents, who are invited to participate in spaces where they can discuss issues regarding the development of their children. In order to ensure the sustainability of our results over time, we build partnerships with governments and local organizations in the areas of intervention.

During 2012 we achieved that 2,461 children and young people were withdrawn from child labor. This figure represents 60.8% of the children included in the program. 1,051 children of the non-retired group, reduced their
labor hours by 25%, this represents an achievement because it is time they are investing in playing and studying.

In 2013 we are working with 10.565 children to eradicate them from child labor. We are currently working with all of them throughout the country. 5.628 of them are children who work right now and 4.937 are former workers who need further assistance in order to prevent them from working again.  

Through GlobalGiving we seek to present our project and to receive contributions from people around the world
in order to improve the situation of children and youth in Colombia. Our goal is to continue working for the eradication of child labor. We hope to help many more children to live their lives as children with our work and with your donations.

Nuestra organización ha trabajado arduamente por la erradicación del trabajo infantil desde hace más de 10 años. Hemos construido sólidas alianzas con organizaciones nacionales e internacionales para lograr beneficiar a muchos más niños y jóvenes con nuestros servicios.

Constantemente estamos observando nuestro entorno y observando nuestros procesos internos para lograr que los niños y jóvenes se retiren del trabajo infantil. Contamos con un equipo humano altamente calificado para lograr que nuestro objetivo se cumpla de una forma más eficiente cada vez.

A través de clubes artísticos, deportivos y científicos logramos que los niños y jóvenes inviertan su tiempo aprendiendo y divirtiéndose y no trabajando. Este trabajo se hace de la mano de los padres de familia, a quienes invitamos a espacios de participación en los que pueden discutir sobre temas del desarrollo de sus
hijos. Con el fin de lograr la sostenibilidad de nuestros resultados en el tiempo, hacemos alianzas con gobiernos y organizaciones locales en las zonas de intervención.

Durante el 2012 se logró que 2.461 niños y jóvenes fueran retirados del trabajo infantil. Esta cifra representa el 60,8% de los niños incluidos en el programa. 1.051 niños de los que no se retiraron el año pasado, redujeron sus horas de trabajo infantil en un 25%, esto representa un logro porque es tiempo que ahora invierten jugando y estudiando.

En el 2013 trabajamos para retirar del trabajo infantil a 10.565 niños y jóvenes. Actualmente estamos trabajando con todos ellos alrededor del territorio nacional. 5.628 de ellos son niños que trabajan actualmente y 4.937 son niños que han sido retirados del trabajo infantil y que requieren un acompañamiento más prolongado para que no
reincidan.  

A través de Globalgiving buscamos dar a conocer nuestro proyecto y movilizar recursos a partir de las contribuciones que personas de todo el mundo quieran hacer con el fin de mejorar la situación de la niñez y la juventud en Colombia. Nuestro objetivo es seguir trabajando por la erradicación del trabajo infantil. Esperamos que con nuestro trabajo y con tus donaciones, podamos ayudar a muchos más niños a vivir sus vidas como niños.
