Like the rest of the world, we at CEPALC have adjusted the way we do radio programs and workshops this year to continue doing this important work while protecting each other during the pandemic; allowing children to stay at home while still working together and learning about human rights, peace, and mental health. 

With your help, we will continue teaching peace in Colombia and working with children to defend their rights however, this project page on GlobalGiving for Empower 300 Colombian Children: Teaching Peace, will be closing. We want to be clear that the project page will no longer be active on this platform, but CEPALC's work with children in Colombia will continue!

We are happy to inform you that CEPALC started another project on GlobalGiving: Teach 400 Indigenous Children: Justice in Colombia. We encourage you to check out this project and continue supporting CEPALC. Please consider donating to this new project for #GivingTuesday here on GlobalGiving on December 1, 2020.

Thank you for supporting CEPALC over the years. You have taught children in Colombia peace and the meaning of solidarity. You, and supporters like you, have invested over $10,000 USD in protecting and empowering children in Colombia. Thank you.


Como el resto del mundo, nosotros en CEPALC hemos cambiado la forma en que realizamos programas de radio y talleres este año para poder continuar este trabajo tan importante mientras nos protegemos durante la pandemia; haciendo posible los niños y las niñas quedan en sus casas mientras trabajan juntas y juntos, aprendiendo sobre los derechos humanos, la paz, y su salud mental.

Despite very serious social, cultural, and economic problems that the Covid 19 pandemic has created in our country, from CEPALC we have maintained training, monitoring  activities with different children's groups, mainly in Bogotá and the Boyacá department. Workshops have studied sexual, religious, and ethnic minority rights in Colombia. Children must understand serious consequences discrimination and exclusion bring to build peace and justice in our country. Our children  promoting solidarity values for angry, sorrow people torn by big economical, social, political crisis.

Children families live in extreme poverty situations aggravated crises, however children find our workshops, activities reason to maintain hope and give some joy to their lives

Covid 19 has hit Colombia and the department of Córdoba, indigenous councils San Andrés and Tuchín have not saved an epidemic. Although school activities are closed, children from indigenous communities, with the help of CEPALC teachers and advisers, have been conducting virtual workshops on childhood rights, creating theater plays about indigenous values, traditions and culture of peace.

With cell phones children are recording theater scenes one by one and then at CEPALC we are editing video with more technical resources.
Indigenous children do not lose hope despite the many difficulties that are occurring in communities due to pandemic: more unemployment, people infected with disease, region isolation, closing of schools and colleges.
With our project using electronic media technology, children continue to work for peace and a society based on values, justice and peace.
