Daniel playing guitar
Daniel playing guitar

Daniel is a 10 years old boy with a great talent for music, he surprised us in December with his presentation singing Christmas carols for the Christmas celebration, his beautiful voice left us in awe, his interpretation and his charisma invaded our hearts. Now in one of our activities he has surprised us again with his guitar interpretation of the children's song "twinkle twinkle little star", although his passion is rock music and his dream is to become a great guitarist of this genre.

His encounter with the guitar occurred when he was 7 years old, where he received only 5 guitar lessons at his school, which were enough for him to be the winner when he presented himself as a duet with his mother in the contest proposed for the end of the course.

His family supports him and motivates him to follow his dream and although he does not have a cell phone that allows him to download applications or watch online guitar lessons, his grandmother, when she gets home from work, gives him her cell phone that has a little more memory capacity with the purpose that he does not stop moving towards his goal.

Daniel developed a special love for the guitar that became his passion and a dream to fulfill, now, from the Los del Camino Foundation we will do everything possible to support Daniel who we see as an innate musician and who we want to see as a guitarist. happy, showing the public his enormous talent, enjoying and living of what he likes to do the most.

We continue working so that each of the children of CEII Caminitos develop their passion, have a prosperous future and above all, that they be really happy.

 

With all our love,

Daniel tiene 10 años y un gran talento para la música, nos sorprendió en diciembre con su presentación cantando villancicos para la celebración de navidad, su bella voz nos dejó admirados, su interpretacion y su carisma invadió nuestros corazones. Ahora en una de nuestras actividades nos ha vuelto a sorprender con su interpretación en guitarra de la canción infantil "Estrellita donde estás", aunque su pasión es la música rock y su sueño es convertirse en un gran guitarrista de este género.

Su encuentro con la guitarra se dió a sus 7 años, desde que recibió tan sólo 5 lecciones en su colegio, que le bastaron para ser el ganador al presentarse a dúo con su mamá en el concurso propuesto para la finalización del curso.

Su familia lo apoya y lo motiva a seguir su sueño y aunque él no tiene un celular que le permita descargar aplicaciones o ver lecciones online de guitarra, su abuela al llegar a casa de su trabajo, le da su celular que cuenta con un poco más de memoria para que él no pare de avanzar hacia su meta.

Daniel desarrolló un amor especial por la guitarra que se transformó en su pasión y en un sueño por cumplir, ahora, desde la Fundación Los del Camino haremos lo posible para apoyar a Daniel a quien vemos como un músico innato y que queremos ver como un guitarrista feliz, mostrandole al público su enorme talento, disfrutanto y viviendo de lo que más le gusta hacer.

Seguimos trabajando porque cada uno de los niños del CEII Caminitos desarrollen su pasión, tengan un futuro próspero y sobre todas las cosas, que sean realmente felices.

 

Con todo nuestro amor,

 

Fundación Los Del Camino.

Entre todos, todo es mejor

Teniendo en cuenta el aislamiento social al que nos ha obligado la pandemia, hemos implemetado un sistema de manejo del tiempo libre creativo, educativo e integrador para nuestros 75 niños que ahora hacen parte del CEII, gracias a la ayuda de 9 alumnos del grado 11 del colegio bilingüe Bennett que con gran entusiasmo están diseñando actividades donde, a traves de Whatsapp y con videos, comparten un poco de su conocimiento para enrriqueser el conocimiento de los niños, con temas como alimentación saludable, medios de transporte usados en el mundo, especies animales que viven lejos de ellos, entre otros; además de conceptos en inglés para reforzar sus conocimientos en este idioma y su correcta pronunciación. Para los niños del CEII este aporte es valiosísimo ya que de manera divertida aprenden y crean un puente que une sus corazones y los de los adolescentes de grado 11, dejando una huella imborrable para todos.

De esta manera tanto los niños del CEII como los estudiantes del Colegio Bennett enriquesen sus experiencias de vida con distanca física pero con una gran unión de sus almas, porque entre todos, todo es mejor.


Between everyone, everything is better

Taking into account the social distance to which the pandemic has forced us, we have implemented a creative, educational and inclusive free time management system for our 75 children who are now part of the CEII, thanks to the help of 9 11th grade students from the Bennett bilingual school that with great enthusiasm are designing activities where, through WhatsApp and with videos, they share a little of their knowledge to enrich the knowledge of children, with topics such as healthy eating, means of transport used in the world, animal species who live far from them, among others; in addition to concepts in English to reinforce their knowledge of this language and its correct pronunciation. For the children of the CEII this contribution is invaluable since in a fun way they learn and create a bridge that unites their hearts and those of the teenagers in grade 11, leaving an indelible mark for all.

In this way, both the children of the CEII and the students of the Bennett School enrich their life experiences with physical distance but with a great union of their souls, because between everyone, everything is better.

A medida que el Covid 19 se difundía, las medidas del gobierno se extremaban, se acentuaba la crisis económica y con ella las crisis emocionales, esas que nadie puede ver pero que pueden ser tanto o  más desastrosas que la escases de dinero. El encierro producido por la cuarentena y el miedo a ser contagiado ha desatado angustias profundas en algunas personas.

A medida que las medidas de aislamiento han sido flexibilizadas, nosotros hemos empezado a desarrollar actividades que incluyen a los padres de familia para que, con todas las medidas de bioseguridad, puedan tener herramientas con las cuales enfrentar esta situacion tan difícil y sin precedentes en este siglo.

Desde el mes de septiembre hemos empezado a desarrollar talleres junto con una organización norteamericana llamada Interhec, para el cuidado del cuerpo y la mente de los niños y sus padres, empezamos con un taller de maquillaje cuyo patrocinador fue la empresa de maquillaje Mary Kay, en este taller se enseñaron tecnicas de maquillaje, cuidados de la piel y se entregaron kits de maquillaje, junto a una charla sobre el reconocimiento de nuestro valor personal más allá de lo físico.

También 2 personas que sufrieron accidentes graves que los dejaron discapacitados, nos acompañaron en una charla desde Philadelphia con sus Corazones de Acero; nos mostraron cómo con determinación nos podemos adaptar y superarnos. Seguimos con masajes terapéuticos y, así cada 15 días y hasta el mes de diciembre estaremos dictando conferencias sobre alimentación saludable, escritura creativa y otros temas para alimentar la mente y el espíritu de los niños y sus padres, encontrando juntos la motivación,  estilos de vida más saludables y distracción, para salir fortalecidos de esta situación tan difícil que nos obliga a tener una nueva normalidad.

 

Esperamos que cada persona encuentre fortaleza, motivación y su felicidad en medio de este pandemia.

 

Con todo nuestro amor,

As Covid 19 spread, the government measures became more extreme, the economic crisis was accentuated, and with it came the emotional crises, the ones that no one can see but can be as or more disastrous than money shortages. The confinement caused by quarantine and the fear of being infected has unfeded deep anxieties in some people.

As isolation measures have been made more flexible, we have begun to develop activities that include CEII children's parents so that, with all the biosecurity measures, they can have tools with which they can face this difficult and unprecedented situation in this century.

Since September we have started to develop workshops together with an American organization called Interhec, for the care of the body and mind of children and their parents, we started with a makeup workshop whose sponsor was the makeup company Mary Kay. This workshop taught techniques of makeup, skin care and delivered makeup kits, along with a talk about recognizing our personal value beyond the physical matter.

Also, 2 people who suffered serious accidents that left them disabled, accompanied us in a talk from Philadelphia with their Hearts of Steel; they showed us how with determination we can adapt and overcome ourselves. We continue with therapeutic massages and every 15 days until December we will be giving lectures on healthy eating, creative writing and other topics to feed the minds and spirits of children and their parents, finding together motivation, healthier lifestyles and distraction, to emerge strengthened from this difficult situation that forces us to have a new normal.

We hope that each person will find strength, motivation and happiness in the midst of this pandemic.

 

With love,

Queridos donantes,

Esta crisis mundial ha traido sufrimiento a muchas personas que han sido contaminadas por el virus, además de ellas, las repercusiones económicas han sido dramáticas gracias a la cuarentena obligatoria ordenada por varios gobiernos incluyendo el colombiano, esta medida ha afectado rápidamente a quienes viven de la economía informal. A este gremio pertenecen en su gran mayoría las familias de los niños del CEII Caminitos, haciendo más difícil su vida y poniendo en riesgo el bienestar que se ha procurado hasta el momento.

La Fundación Los del Camino ha sido contactada por la empresa privada con el fin de disminuír los efectos económicos negativos de esta pandemia en estas familias y en otras que se encuentras en la misma situación. Gracias a las campañas que desarrollamos en diferentes zonas del país, contamos con una base de datos que identifica claramente a quienes viven de los ingresos que genera diariamente el trabajo informal, con esta información pudimos organizar equipos en 19 ciudades del país y con el aporte económico se planeó entregar 1 mercado cada 15 días y durante 3 meses a 3.362 familias en necesidad, esta campaña acaba de terminar en el mes de junio pero gracias a su organización y transparencia la empresa privada se ha motivado en hacer una segunda entrega para seguir apoyando a quienes más lo necesitan. Nosotros estamos muy felices de ver que en medio de las crisis hay quienes piensan en los más necesitados y tenemos la certeza que juntos avanzaremos y llegamos más lejos.

Esperamos que todos ustedes y sus familias se encuentren bien y que sean testigos de la bondad del ser humano. Sabemos que todos saldremos fortalecidos y con lecciones positivas aprendidas que harán que tengamos un mejor mundo.

 

Con Amor,

Dear donors,

This world health crisis has brought suffering to many people who have been contaminated by the virus, as well as the economic repercussions that have been dramatic due to the obligatory quarantine ordered by different governments including Colombia. These decisions have affected especially those who live from the informal economy. The vast majority of families from de CEII Caminitos' Children belong to this type of economy, which have made their lifes a lot more difficult and have placed at risk the well being that have been acquaried up until now.
Los del Camino Foundation has been contacted by the private sector to find a way to minimize these negative economic effects brought by the crisis to these families and to others that find themselves in the same situation. Thanks to the campaigns that we have done in different cities around the country, we had gathered a database that clearly identifies those who live from the daily income produced by their informal work and with this information we were able to organized teams in 19 cities and with the economic support we planned and delivered grocery packages every 15 days during 3 months to a total of 3.362 families in need, this campaign has ended in the month of june but by virtue of the organization and the transparency achieved by the foundation, the private sector was motivated in performing a second round of deliveries to continue supporting those who need it the most. 
We are very happy to see that despite being in the middle of a crisis, there are those who think in the most vulnerable and we are certain that together we will move forward and reach even further.
We sincerely hope that all of you and your families are well  and that you are witnessing the real goodwill of human decency. We know that we will come out of this even stronger and with positive experiences that will make a better world for all of us.
With love,

Queridos donantes,

El propósito de nuestro CEII Caminitos es que nuestros niños y adolescentes abran su mente, descubran otras formas de ver la vida,y vivan nuevas experiencias que logren impactarlos, que se den cuenta que hay muchas cosas positivas por descubrir afuera de su realidad; es por eso que nos apoyamos en empresas que están en la capacidad de abrir un nuevo mundo para ellos. Producto de ésto, el pasado 8 de febrero , los 40 niños de nuestro CEII visitaron una sala de cine por primera vez en su vida.

Los niños vivieron la experiencia al máximo, sorprendiendose con las figuras de Los Avengers, con las que se tomaron fotos y rieron. Se maravillaron al ver una pantalla gigante que les permitió adentrarse en el mundo de Las Aventuras del Doctor Dolittle dejandose asombrar por una historia donde un doctor podía comunicarse con los animales, se reian de lo inclreible y sus mentes descubrían lo interesante de ese mundo, mientras tomaban refresco y comian crispetas, algunos junto a sus padres que tambien se regocijaron al ver a sus hijos felices y de vivir ellos mismos esta experiencia que muy pocas veces ellos mismos han vivido.

Seguimos descubriendo formas sencillas de cambiar la realidad de estos niños con el apoyo de personas como usted que creen en que las pequeñas acciones pueden tener un impacto importante en su futuro.

 

¡Feliz Semana a todos!

Dear donors,

The purpose of our CEII Caminitos is for our children and adolescents to open their minds, discover other ways of seeing life, and live new experiences that can impact them, make them realize that there are many positive things to discover outside their reality; that's why we rely on companies that are able to open up a new world for them. As a result of this, on February 8th, the 40 children of our CEII visited a movie theater for the first time in their lives.

The children lived the experience to the fullest, surprising them with the life size Avengers, with whom they were able to take photos with and have a good time. They marveled at a giant screen that allowed them to delve into the world of Dolittle's Adventures, being amazed by a story where a doctor could communicate with animals and laughed with the occurences. Their minds were able to discover the fascinating world of a cinematic experience, while drinking soda and eating popcorn, some of them accompanied by their parents who also rejoiced in seeing their children happy and living this event themselves, something that they rarely do on their own.

We continue to discover simple ways to change the reality of these children with the support of people like you who believe that small actions can have a major impact on their future.

Happy Week to you all!
