Over the last months we have done much in Centro COMParte and here are some of our main achievements.
In partnership with the group Loma Sur we put in place radio workshops for the children from Santa Rosa. Thanks to the social cartography methodology we managed to put in light the most salient aspects of the neighbourhood that are part of children’s everyday life.
We celebrated the end of the Radio workshops with a communitarian event to which both children and adults from the neighbourhood took part, enjoying their time, and taking part to the radio production in live.
From now the children can enjoy new educative workshops in addition to school support, such as sciences workshop, craft, and gardening in the greenhouse at the top of the Centre. These workshops are part of a new strategy that aims at reinforcing the cognitive skills of the children.
Four of the microentrepreneurs we are working with keep going with the process of accompanying through business reinforcement in partnership with the Professors and students of the University Politécnico Grancolombiano. They are receiving a support that would help them to perform better on the local and national market.
In partnership with the street artist DJLU we have launched our new product: “Art Tote-Bags,” made by the inhabitants of the neighbourhood of Santa Rosa with dressmaking skills and decorated with a special drawing from the collection “Pictogramas” by DJLU.
In our catalogue of 2016, two microentrepreneurs are reunited after they laid down their weapons and left the struggles of the Colombian armed conflict. The two former adversaries are now working together to produce handmade and traditional goods full of a great social meaning.

We are now getting ready to celebrate Christmas with an event organised by Procolombia. This will be the occasion for the children to share the things that make them proud of their neighbourhood, writing them on Christmas postcards made by themselves over December.
In addition, we are happy to announce Centro COMParte will take part to the semi-final of the Civic Price 2016 (Premio Civico).
