Project Report | Nov 23, 2023
Back again with exciting news

By Ana Martin Ortiz | Project Manager

Dear friends, (en español abajo)

We apologize for the long silence, while our dream to build a center to care for sexually abused children is still alive, we have encountered some difficulties along the way that put the project on hold.

Following the COVID-19 pandemic and the changes in government, the land that had been allocated by the local government to COIN to build the center was no longer available, and for some time we didn't know how or when we would be able to proceed. Finally, a new land was found and we are in the process of formalizing the agreement so that this doesn't happen again.

In the meanwhile, we haven't stopped working with the children and youth from the community, we have continued to meet weekly to educate them on healthy relationships and the prevention of Gender-based violence and STIs including HIV. A new cohort of youth peer educators has been trained and is now in the communities sharing what they learned with other youth. We are also developing a TV series to sensitize against gender-based violence and advocate for the inclusion of youth with disabilities and youth with HIV. This series will be launched in the first half of 2024. 

As we continue to work with youth, we will appreciate your support in continuing to spread the word and raise funds for the center, we know it is a big investment and it will take us time to raise all the funds we need, but we know that if we keep working towards it, this dream will become a reality. 

Thank you for being part of this dream, 

 

 

Queridos amigos, 

Pedimos disculpas por el largo silencio, mientras nuestro sueño de construir un centro para atender a niños abusados sexualmente sigue vivo, hemos encontrado algunas dificultades en el camino que han dejado el proyecto en suspenso.

Tras la pandemia de COVID-19 y los cambios de gobierno, el terreno que había asignado el gobierno local a COIN para construir el centro ya no estaba disponible y durante un tiempo no sabíamos cómo ni cuándo podríamos proceder. Finalmente se encontró un nuevo terreno y estamos en el proceso de formalizar el acuerdo para que esto no vuelva a suceder.

Mientras tanto, no hemos dejado de trabajar con los niños y jóvenes de la comunidad, hemos seguido reuniéndonos semanalmente para educarlos sobre relaciones saludables y la prevención de la violencia de género y las ITS, incluido el VIH. Se ha capacitado a un nuevo grupo de educadores de pares jóvenes que ahora están en las comunidades compartiendo lo que aprendieron con otros jóvenes. También estamos desarrollando una serie de televisión para sensibilizar contra la violencia de género y abogar por la inclusión de jóvenes con discapacidad y jóvenes con VIH. Esta serie se lanzará en la primera mitad de 2024.

A medida que continuamos trabajando con los jóvenes, apreciaremos su apoyo para continuar difundiendo el mensaje y recaudar fondos para el centro. Sabemos que es una gran inversión y nos llevará tiempo recaudar todos los fondos que necesitamos, pero sabemos que que si seguimos trabajando para lograrlo, este sueño se hará realidad.

Gracias por ser parte de este sueño,
