We lived the community reactivation through our traditional Gymkana with which we opened the gender campaign, "Let's live equity, sharing roles and learning". The community actions and the open participation of the community were the protagonists, with the presence and participation of more than 60 people, belonging to the different localities in which Laudes Infantis is present.

It was a day full of laughter, joy and learning, where we finally returned to share in community spaces, recovering relationships and connecting with each other after these last two years of distance.

Children's Day
Saturday, April 30, 2022


In Colombia on April 30, 2022 we celebrated Children's Day, on this day we carried out an activity called Laudes Neighborhood, where children participated in the children's rounds, learned about their rights and duties and together with the directors of the foundation competed in balloon contest where the winners received a diary.

We shared a healthy snack and we had a farewell where some recommendations were made to the children for their safety in the environment in which they live. These actions allow us to promote communication, the rights of children to generate recreational spaces where we accompany them with psychosocial monitoring, food and support.

 On October 31, 2021 we celebrated Children's Day, on this day we realized an activity where the children had the opportunity to see a puppet show in which they could share with the children at the Ciudad Bolivar and Usme sites. Each of the children were given a package of candy and popcorn fopr Halloween. These actions allow us to promote the rights of girls and boys to generate recreational spaces.

Other activities that were carried out were the delivery of the Christmas barter in the month of December of the same year. The activities consisted in the deliveryof gifts on december 17 in Ciudad Bolivar and on December 18 in Usme. Thanks to Mastecard's donation we werw able to deliver different toys sunch as dolls, strollers and playful toys for the little ones. In 2021 was a year in which we accompanied the children whit psycho-social follow-up, food, school support, food to families with School for Parents, managing to maintain presence in the two neighborhoods.

En este trimestre realizamos actividades dirigidas tanto a niños y niñas como a sus familias.

Para cumplir con los derechos y el bienestar de los niños, entregamos tabletas para evitar la deserción escolar. Esta herramienta tecnológica permite a los menores abrir su panorama de aprendizaje y tener una educación continua.

En segundo lugar, al conmemorar el día de los niños, les recordamos lo importante y valiosa que es esta etapa de la vida, entregándoles una bolsa de dulces a cada uno.

Mientras tanto, en el marco familiar, hemos venido brindando apoyo a través de la socialización de varios episodios de podcasts y actividades de seguimiento que informan y sensibilizan sobre temas como la violencia de género y doméstica, la crianza de los hijos y la educación sexual.

Además, para promover el tiempo en familia y el acompañamiento de los padres en casa, realizamos una actividad de teatro online. Se repartieron varias entradas en distintas localizaciones para generar diálogo en torno a una obra de teatro didáctica.

Finalmente, dado que muchos de estos hogares se han visto afectados económicamente debido a la pandemia actual, organizamos la donación de productos de mercado para apoyar las necesidades nutricionales de las familias.

Due to the restrictions that continue due to the covid-19 pandemic, the Fondation have a program to support 70 families "Learning in the Family”, they have psychosocial support, information on prevention and care of possible intrafamily and gender violence.

The Christmas barters were delivered to children at three Fondation headquarters: Brisas del Volador, Bella Flor (locality of Ciudad Bolivar) and Arrayanes (locality of Usme). All the meetings were carried out with all the biosecurity measures.

They were days, with Christmas activities, accompanied by Santa Claus and snacks for the children to have a special gift and above all to accompany them at such an important time for them.

In addition, thanks to the participation of 34 volunteers, the educational processes of 42 boys, girls and adolescents are being supported by providing them with support in the performance of their school duties through technological tools, since, due to the lack of knowledge or resources to the Parents find it difficult to monitor their children's study.

The program is of great importance to avoid school dropouts and to generate support in the life project of the children, who also receive advice from the Procolombia entity and its volunteers. For the Fondation it is important to continue generating actions, in this case from virtuality through Google Meet and WhatsApp.

This year will have the gender equality campaign all the year, for this reason different actions are carried out, including the launch of the podcast "Gender equality, building the path" and training in technologies with Mastercard such as # girls4tech.

The covid-19 pandemic has drastically affected our children, that is why we saw a great opportunity to cheer them up on one of the most important dates for them, Halloween, that is why we carried out a campaign for our donors to support us with 100 packages of sweets, which were delivered to each one's home, with all the health care. In addition, we wanted them to enjoy this holiday beyond the sweets and remember that the most important thing is family unity and costumes.

We held a costume contest where our boys and girls dressed up with the help of their families, we gave the most resourceful and creative a gift, as a sign of the effort and fun they showed. Thanks to this celebration and to our children, we realize that if we are together we can move forward regardless of the problem.
