Transforming our communities

Education focusing on the water project has been fundamental to reduce deforestation and pollution in our communities. Cleaning campaigns are carried out by the children in Un Mundo’s programs, which prevents garbage from falling into the river resulting in contamination.

Each community has a group of children who help coordinate reforestation activities, cleaning and garbage classification. They are guided by a Mentor or Educational Facilitator working for Un Mundo. They also offer educational talks that develop greater capacity and empowerment with the children.

We benefit from your continued collaboration, which helps us develop local capacities and offer socio-environmental training for our children, adolescents and young people. Thank you for sharing our experiences with your friends, family and close contacts, which helps expand our impact in the Cangrejal River basin, an area with high poverty rates and very limited access to resources.

We Save the Earth

Our “Save the Earth” campaign is an educational program that involves almost 300 children in 9 communities and schools.

Highlights of the program include children taking part in a variety of environmental activities such as working on murals made with recyclable materials. Clean-up campaigns were carried out in the communities and also along the river. Educational talks were given in schools and work commissions were formed to continue promoting and implementing activities related to protecting the environment.

Program activities will continue to be carried out on a monthly basis with the goal of reducing any negative environmental impact on our communities. These efforts will include maintaining better garbage control and improved water quality.

The campaign, which is led by children, was very successful! In addition to involving children, the program also managed to arouse the interest and participation of adults, creating greater awareness of the importance of caring for our environment.

We are grateful for your ongoing support and collaboration, which allows us to continue with these activities that are having a positive impact on our communities. We would especially appreciate your help in spreading the word about the campaign with other friends and families, so that together we can be part of the change we want to see.

Educating about the correct use of water can save lives, and that is one of the objectives of our program.

It is estimated that 3.4 million people die each year from water-related diseases. Children are the most vulnerable. The United Nations denounces that more than 700 children under the age of five die every day from diarrhea, due to unsafe water or poor sanitation.

Due to the statistics that exist around the issue of water, our girls and boys see environmental education as a necessity to create greater awareness, and above all to be more responsible. This year several educational campaigns have been carried out led by girls and boys from the communities themselves, in addition to carrying out cleaning campaigns and the transformation of inorganic waste.

To continue educating our communities, and above all to contribute to caring for the environment, we need to continue to have your collaboration. You can also help by sharing our impact stories.

As part of the "Water Connections and Basic Sanitation" project, we worked on an educational campaign "The Voices of Adolescents" to raise awareness about the importance of caring for water, and how society can become involved in this type of initiative.

Testimony of an adult from the community:

Watching children concerned about deforestation and water scarcity, promoting educational campaigns, simply makes us adults reflect on our social and environmental behavior, and how we can offer a better world.

Testimony of child of the photograph:

Our voices must be heard, because they are leaving us a world that we do not deserve.

For making these initiatives a reality, we want to thank everyone who collaborates with this project, and at the same time ask for the support of sharing our experiences with other family and friends.

“Together we can achieve the change we want to see…”

Our project has a holistic approach that addresses issues around water, therefore, if we want to have clean water, we must educate on waste management.

Our health education addressed with children from our programs, the management and control of garbage, through a campaign "Clean community, all healthy."

We are sure that, having children educated with environmental awareness, we will have a better quality of life. And, above all, reliable sources of water for the population, a need that must be constantly attended to.

We thank you for all your support for this project, and we invite you to continue collaborating. And if you're not a part yet, join us in continuing to change lives.
