El Mundialito is an annual football tournament for the children and communities that TECHO Colombia works with. The event promotes peace and teambuilding through sport for over 200 children ages 7-17 years old. El Mundialito incorporates games and a variety of activities that foster diversity, respect, and tolerance throughout the event.
Education for Peace is a part of the community work model of TECHO Colombia seeking to contribute to the transformation of over 2,000 children and youth in the communities we work in by fostering social skills that favor peaceful coexistence and promoting the awareness of personal and community spaces. Education for Peace works to mobilize children and adolescents as agents of change in their communities and society.
El Mundialito 2020 provides an avenue for community co-working and teambuilding between children and adolescents. It creates a space of integration where different activities allow the children to learn and reflect on diversity, respect, and tolerance.
This event is one of many projects and activities put on by Education for Peace TECHO Colombia. The project aims to provide children in the communities we work in with the tools to overcome poverty not only economically, but through knowledge and actions that will benefit the children as individuals and the community as a whole.
