Challenge

Children from Tadó and Medellín live in precarious situations; llittle access to health and education and lack of adecuate spaces for culture and recreation have limited their participation in society and their development as citizens. Children's Land works to foster environmental concience and empower these children by giving them a plot of land and helping them care and manage it during a 12 month period at the end of which each plot of land is self sustained.

Solution

Workshops and activities for children between the age of 6 and 12 that focus on environmental health, the appropriate use of natural resources and artistic expression.

Long-Term Impact

This project will offer a healthy and appropriate space for education and recreation to 120 children from Medellín and Tadó, while promoting them as active and responsible citizens.
