Boys and girls participating in the project have had to adapt to new realities imposed by the pandemic covi 19. However, in areas such as Suba (Bogotá), with the help of CEPALC advisers, they have been training on theater plays, taking advantage of means such as cell phones to communicate. Likewise, they have created radio programs that are being broadcast by CEPALC radio station, taking advantage of our advisory computers that work as a broadcast station.
These programs cover topics such as children's rights, women's rights, respect for minority rights, environmental protection, care and social discipline in a pandemic. Some children's groups have produced short videos on these same topics.
. We can, then, affirm, project children are facing pandemic crisis with hope, courage and great sense of social solidarity.

By felix posada rojas - felix posada rojas
Indigenous children from the Zenú communities have continued making radio programs through cell phones. Although their regions, their communities are isolated to avoid contagion covid 19, children are so motivated by their radio practices, by desire to communicate their ideas, their thoughts, their concepts about new social realities created by disease in our country.
Before a pandemic began in Colombia, indigenous children in collaboration with school teachers created a school radio station through which they began to broadcast programs on human rights, peace, women's rights, nature protection.
Theater groups were also participating creating plays about respect for cultural, religious and social diversity.
Children Zenú communities do not lose hope; remain committed to helping build a better world, a world of justice and peace.
Children are empowering as true rights subjects. They have developed communication, social, and artistic skills. Rights, your rights, let be empty words for them, for their families. Families begin to be positively influenced by changes that occur in children's behavior and thinking
