Peace Education in Colombia and Leaders for Change

During this period PAZalobien has reached children in 27 public schools in the city, Bello, and 1 in Medellin.

2,816 children in these public schools have now been living the PAZalobien methodology in their classrooms. Through Pazalobien they have strengthened life skills such as resolution of conflict, empathy and decisión-making and creative and  critical thought to name a few.

 In order to reach these children, 130 teachers have participated in Mi Sangre’s train-the-trainer program, to convert their classrooms in democratic spaces where citizenship can be developed in children. After receiving this training followed by individual, group and virtual coaching, 104 of those same teachers are now implementing PAZalobien of their own initiative in their classrooms.

Mi Sangre is also opening spaces for children to participate at the community and family levels by leading workshops with 103 adults around the right of participation of children and young people.

Through this strategy, and using art and play as pedagogical tools, we are giving children skills so that they become key players in Colombia’s peace-building process and can prevent risks to themselves and their communities.

Leaders for Change Build Peace in Colombia

In this period Leaders for Change arrived to the city of Cartagena Colombia where 400 young people began to receive training on social entreuprenership for peace. 150 young people are also becoming Leaders for Change in the city of Medellin. 

 During this period participants have focused on two learning modules: Explore and Create. During the module Explore youth explored who they are, the world they live in, and who they live with. During the module Create youth began to identify the problems faced by their communities and identifying the solutions. In this module youth began to learn skills around proposal writing, budget development and action plans.

 The Fundación Mi Sangre also launched the Network of Young Peacebuilders, where youth participants of Leaders for Change joined together from around the country in a virtual and presential network to develop ideas for peace. The first step of the network took place in August, when 70 youth leaders came together in a retreat to understand how to use citizenship journalism and TICs for their peacebuilding iniatitives. 

 Today we have over 800 youth leaders connected across Colombia, continuing as change makers even after completing our program, through FMS´s National Network of Young Peacebuilders
