50 years of brutal conflict in Colombia have denied millions of children their right to safety, education, health and a protective family. 

• 2.5 million child victims •

• 50,000 children killed or disappeared •

• 1/3 young people live in poverty

• 200,000 estimated cases of sexual abuse against children every year •

• Continued recruitment and use of children by illegal armed groups •

This must change.

After more than 50 years of brutal armed conflict, Colombia desperately needs a peace that will allow these children, and all Colombians, to enjoy safety, prosperity and equality in their beautiful country.

Now, while the terms of Colombia's future are still being settled, there has never been a more important time to act! That's why we are working to empower and include the most excluded children.

We are giving them safe places to be right now, teaching them about their rights and helping them build peace in their communities.

These children are adamant that although they were born into war, they will be the generation that inherits peace. And they want to play a role in making that happen!

But they need your help. Please donate to Children Change Colombia today and give change a chance.

How your donations could help children in Colombia

£3 a month for a year could help an ex-child soldier get his/her life back on track by paying for a year of professional support for their foster family.

£10 a month for a year could provide post-traumatic support to a child victim of violence and empower them to become a promoter of non-violence within their community.

£20 a month for a year could help make a conflict-scarred community safer for children through music and arts training to promote peaceful cooperation. 

 You can help us reach our target!
