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!

SHE WANTS TO BE AN ASTRONAUT

She is Gineth Alejandra but we called MAMU, she’s 11 and since she was 3 is assisting to our programmes, is one of the participants in our video at Global Giving and as you can see is always happy.

To all of us it’s so great to see her smile and know for fact she’s growing surrounded by love, learning values for life and looking to make things right, full of dreams and confident that she has everything to accomplish them.

Mamu is a monitor, she arrives early to do her homework and then helps younger children with their homework, she also helps with housework at Pintando, she is at Pintando most of her day.

Her parents work with us, Manuel, her father, drives a taxicab and he takes us all over to Bogota, and also picks up visitors and donations since 2008, and her mother Marcela, helps with the care and education children since 2010. Her relatives are also in Pintando Caminos, cousins, uncles, are part of our great family.

Her dreams are to become an astronaut, a CSI or a professional singer. What is important to us is that she knows the flavor of a huge hug, knows she can fulfill her dreams and that she can count with us to support her and give her love.

Mamu is a constant reminder of why is worth to continue working in transform poverty within Colombia, every time that I remember that 6 of every 10 Colombians live in poverty or vulnerability, I look at Mamu and she inspires me to continue, to fight for many more children out there who need education, love and values, children like her.

PS: Her dog is also a part of Pintando, his name is “Mouse”
