At Mi Sangre Foundation we believe in the immense creative potential within children and young people, for this reason we developed educational programs for peace, which by means of artistic expression participants find new ways to learn, to recognize and participate with others.

Creative process awake in new generations infinite possibilities of perception and sensitivity, this way children and young people rediscover their lives through photography, theater, music, dance and painting, filling it with passions that give a true meaning to their existence.

"Peace is respect the life of all beings in nature" says Luis assertively, a young participant of the Education for Peace program, in one of the nonviolence training. For Mi Sangre Foundation peace is much more than the absence of conflict, is a constant construction that necessarily involves the inclusion, nondiscrimination, respect for difference and equality in relations between citizens.

Artistic expression has been essential in citizenship skills training. Through art participants can strengthen and develop integrative skills, becoming active, creative and purposeful human beings respectful of life.

Art is a tool for social transformation that allows us to express in a healthy way and helps us design the world we want to live in.

Citizens of the world, let's give our children the opportunity to create a decent world in which to grow.




En Mi Sangre creemos en el inmenso potencial creativo que tienen niños, niñas y jóvenes, por tal motivo desarrollamos programas de educación para la paz, en los que por medio de las manifestaciones artísticas los participantes encuentran nuevas formas de aprender, de reconocerse y de participar con otros.

Los procesos creativos despiertan en las nuevas generaciones infinitas posibilidades de percepción y sensibilidad, es así como los niños, niñas y jóvenes logran, por medio de la fotografía, el teatro, la música, la danza y la pintura, redescubrir su vida y dotarla de pasiones que le dan significado a su existencia.

“La paz es respetar la vida de todos los seres de la naturaleza” menciona asertivamente Luís, un joven participante, de un programa de Educación para la Paz, en uno de los entrenamiento en noviolencia. Para la Fundación Mi Sangre la PAZ es mucho más que la ausencia de conflictos, es una construcción constante que involucra necesariamente la inclusión, la no discriminación, el respeto a la diferencia y la equidad en las relaciones entre ciudadanos.

La expresión artística ha sido primordial en la formación en competencias ciudadanas, por medio del arte es posible fortalecer y desarrollar aptitudes y habilidades integradoras en los participantes, y de esta manera se logra formar seres libres, activos, creativos, propositivos y lo más importante, respetuosos de la vida.

El arte es una herramienta de transformación social que nos permite expresarnos sanamente, narrarnos en comunidad y diseñar el mundo que deseamos habitar.

Ciudadanos y ciudadanas del mundo, démosle a nuestros niños la posibilidad de crear un mundo digno en el cual crecer.
