What an incredible year
Join our cause to transform the lives of boys and girls at the Centro Social Unidad in Bogotá, Colombia!
Every small gesture can make a big difference in the future of these children. Your support not only gives them hope, but also offers them the opportunity to build a tomorrow full of possibilities and realized dreams.
Together, we can create a lasting positive impact. By coming together, we are not only changing lives, but also building a stronger and more fraternal community.
Join us on this exciting journey of transformation, where every act of generosity counts. Your participation is the key to building a more beautiful future full of possibilities for these boys and girls.
We have completed our Affectivity and Sexuality 2023 training program, aimed at boys and girls from 4 to 8 years old and their parents.
The last workshop was “Fear, we look at it”, its objective was to provide parents with tools for the correct management of fear. Like all the workshops, it took place in a warm and participatory environment, where they could express themselves, allowing them to learn about the management of emotions.
In this year of training, the need to accompany parents who, for various reasons, are not prepared to face the emotional and sexual formation of their children was evident.
This is how it was scheduled for the year 2024 to continue with the affectivity and sexuality training program to promote complete growth, which involves all dimensions; spiritual, intellectual, relational-social, emotional, biological, historical-environmental of children and adolescents.
Walk for Peace
To reinforce the theme of “Culture of Peace” and “Active Listening”, the CSU Social Center Unity held a walk for peace. The children gave the residents of the community doves they had made with a beautiful message, “Join the Peace, subtract the violence, multiply the love, divide the sadness.”
It has been a time with many challenges for the community, this is how we see the importance of creating synergies with other people and institutions so that together we can contribute our grain of sand to support the community of the Centro Social Unidad CSU.
The Rosario University, through its faculties of medicine and nursing, continues to carry out internships at the Centro Social Unidad (CSU). Medical students make medical diagnoses to families every eight days, while nursing students offer health workshops to older adults and children, in addition to performing medical diagnoses in the community. All these actions have a positive impact on the local population.
Psychologist at CSU
During this period, the need for psychological support at the CSU has been noted. A psychologist friend volunteers to treat some specific cases, carrying out therapies once a week with very positive results. However, several children require this help, and it is hoped that in the future the CSU will have a permanent psychologist. Mental health is increasingly relevant in our community, and it is crucial to offer support to those who need it.
