Hello friends,

This is another year that ends full of satisfaction and with a lot of hopes for our cause “Rethinking Down Syndrome in Colombia”. Step by step we keep on achieving our goal and that’s why we want to show you how much we actually appreciate and feel happy for your interest and support.

From the last issued report in September, we’ve made a lot more activities: a formative cycle for teachers and families about Person Centered Planning, in which an estimated of 80 persons were benefited. We also ended our participation in the BIBA fairs, in which we were able to visit 14 neighborhoods and get important information to 740 people.During the month of December, we did the launch of 2014 calendar “From me, you learn from you” as well as a campaign that took place in the public service stations of Transmetro “Accesibility is everyone’s right”, two initiatives that help us keep promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities.

Christmas? Thank to the support received, we made an unforgettable celebration to our affiliates. There are no words to describe it, but we have a lot of smiles that prove it. Feel free to check on them through this link. Chistmas Photo booth , Christmas Celebration

On behalf of the families and our work team, we want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and we invite you to keep up with us in this journey of transformation and common well-being.

Best wishes,
