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.
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.
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.
