SUPERHEROES

As we told you, this year PINTANDO CAMINOS is devoting much of its efforts to support children and young people in their process of developing self-esteem and improve their self-value.

 Convinced  that children and young people with strong self-esteem and a good concept of its self-value make decisions in their lives that lead them towards their full realization as human beings.

 

We regret seeing poverty become real in our girls lives because of early pregnancies, last year two young girls of 13 and 15 years old became pregnant despite all the efforts that the team of pintando caminos made in this subject.

 

Because of this situation we started a program with the Rotary club of Bogota, which we call Superheroes, this program has been structured using tools such as coaching, experiential education and leadership training, we are facing the problem not from prevention, but, from self-value, if love myself I respect me and respect my body, if I love myself I recognize my value and others value so I make smart decisions, if I love myself I take care of myself and others so I think before acting.

 

This project has been going for one year with two groups of 20 children each, the idea is to replicate it for all children over 10 years old and make it a replicable experience for other foundations and communities.

 

As always thank you for supporting us and believe in what we do

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
