Working With Children in Colombia

Until recently, the Colombian government and armed insurgents have been embroiled in a brutal, decades-long conflict. Nearly six million people fled their homes and generations have grown up with violence, instability and hunger.

As the country begins the long journey of recovery, we are working with families and children in Colombia to promote a culture of peace. Communities are increasing their capacity to monitor the rights of children and to respond to situations of risk and abuse. Youths are encouraged to stay in school to help break the cycle of violence. Through investments in health and education, we help youths and families increase their income for a more successful future.
