Working together for our colombian children

Thanks to you, we could continuedeveloping our aim to contribute to the proper growth of children from disadvantaged populations, taking anthropometric and neurodevelopmental measures that allow us to see the state of our users and implement necesary actions  to intervene in order to improve their health condition.

Amiguitos Royal offers the following programs:

• Expectant mothers: 23 mothers  receive care in nutrition, intrauterine development, strengthening relationships and family.
• mother-child binomial: 260 kids asist with their mothers or caregivers to work in the areas of nutrition, breastfeeding, psychomotor development, link building, self-esteem and self-management of moms.
• Daily Attendance: 85 children, from 2 to 5 years, are attended daily from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and receive balanced nutrition and have a caring and stimulating environment that allows them to grow with adequate self-esteem and social skills and cognitive skills that will facilitate their entry to school.
• Teaching at lunch: 136 children from 5 to 9 years, receive feeding and complementary education in order to some  strengthen their social skills and learn to enjoy free time constructively.

Special Programs

This year, we are emphasizing the creation of a safe, loving and stimulating place, where children can express themselves peacefully, where they feel accepted with their differences, are supported and can give support to others, where they can choose different activities according your taste and feel part of creating this environment enriched by each of them.

Besides this participatory and caring environment, we started working with a program of CINDE: Children as peace-builders, which has been well received within the children. We hope to help educate young people happy and peaceful contribute to the harmonious development of our country.
