LEADERSHIP SCHOOL IS OUR MAIN PROJECT FOR 2016...

They are Diana (LEFT) and Carolina, Diana is 16 and Carolina is 14years old, both have been beneficiaries of our program for several years, both have attended different activities where we talk about how to prevent early pregnancy and how valuable they are, however, both of them became pregnant, Diana when she was 15 and Carolina when she was 13, in none of the cases the father is helping with the children.

 Although this story is sad, Pintando Caminos had a great learning: it is not enough to teach them to read and write; is not enough to develop workshops and courses on pregnancy prevention; its not enough to have them busy playing and doing crafts. We need to make them become EMPOWERED and make them aware that their future and their happiness and also  the future of the planet depends only on them and how they make their decisions, so since last year and especially  this year Pintando Caminos is evolving into a LEADERSHIP school where the priority is to make that everything  happening here teaches children and youth to make the best out of them, to value them selfs and take responsibility for their actions.

Pintando Caminos is present for these girls because we love them with all of our heart, Diana help us  at Pintando Caminos, supporting young children and attends every day with Dilan Samuel, her son, so she can pay their basic expenses, buying diapers and pay for the place where she lives with hes sister, she is studing weekends so she can finish school.

Diana lives with her parents who help her care for Sofia and attend regulary our programs.

 AS ALWAYS THANK S FOR BELIEVING IN OUR WORK

Cicatricure joins Pintando Caminos' cause in TV campaign

Thank you Cicatricure
Thank you Cicatricure

First and foremost, we would like to express our feelings of gratitude towards everyone who has supported this project. Your donations continue to make a significant impact on the lives of children who would otherwise not have access to the wonderful learning environment, nutrition, and resources that are provided by our program.  Your donations continue to allow PINTANDO CAMINOS to not only provide basic necessities for these at-risk children such as nutrition, psychological services, and school support, but to also equip them with skills that will make them well-rounded conscientious adults, able to break the circle of poverty. 

We are really excited about our new TV campaign lounched by Gennoma Lab. They decided to support our Project and created a campaign wich is being viewed in local Colombian television, inviting people to get involved with PINTANDO CAMINOS, so far we havent recieved donations from this campaign but is a big step because people are getting to know us, getting to know that we are helping to heal emotional wounds with love 

For this campaign we had many hours of filming and the kids were delighted! We are attaching some pictures we took from the campaign final video!

We also have a new web page, with new pictures and some features that had to be upgraded, now we have a link in our web to Global Giving donation page and we have a link so money can be transfered directly to our account! We are triying to make things easier to all the people that are willing to help us with their donations!
