In Colombia kids and young are one of the most affected populations by the conflict, they live in vulnerable situation and without tools to achieve change
At Mi Sangre our bet is that they
become peace builders!
We heal the woulds in the soul (Psichosocial attention). We protect the rights of little girls and boys in Colombia (construction of protective environments)
We leave in kids and young the faculties to build a peaceful Colombia.
We work hand in hand with local institutions and significant adults in their communities. That way we can integrate this change in the social knitting.
The 12th of February was the International Day against the Use of Child Soldiers. Along with the Departmental Government of Antioquia and their Protective Environments program and the Municipal Council of Caucasia, we celebrated an event with the community that evoked the Right to Dream and the need to create and care for environments and spaces that protect the rights of children, adolescents and young people. Artistic and games-based activities were held to promote a culture of peace and the recognition of children and young people as agents of change.
Mi Sangre Foundation, created by singer and social leader Juanes in 2006, for children, adolescents and young in Colombia to become peacemakers, will incubate the process of creating this new community of Young Global Transformers, led by its Director Catalina Cock Duque, who five years ago was chosen by the World Economic Forum as a Young Global Leader.
