Children Change Colombia Project Talk - 6th February
Defending children's rights in the most neglected regions of Colombia
We are delighted to invite you to our annual Project Talk on Tuesday 6th February 2018 at the London College of Fashion.
The evening will focus on our recent move towards working in some of Colombia’s remotest regions, and the opportunities and challenges this poses both for the children we support and for us as an organisation.
All over Colombia, communities left fractured and isolated by the armed conflict are struggling to rebuild themselves. Far from the country’s metropolitan centres, these communities have lived for years with a lack of state presence and of basic services, under continual threat from armed groups. The peace accords bring the possibility of reducing this historical neglect. They also bring new threats from different armed actors. It is in these areas that the need to promote children's rights in a changing Colombia is perhaps most urgent. With a number of new partner organisations, we are working with children and adults to help them bring lasting peace to their communities.
This year, we are delighted to be able to bring you interviews with young people from our partner organisation Casa Amazonia. These short films offer an insight into the young people’s personal experiences of life in remote Putumayo in south-western Colombia. These are the children who are changing Colombia - please come along and learn more from them about how they are doing it!
You will also have a chance to put your questions directly to members of our team who work closely with our partners in Colombia.
After the talk, we hope you will stay on to enjoy a glass of wine with us.
Tuesday 6th February 2018, 6:30 - 8:30pm
