Fundación Colombianitos

Network Member

Many children and young people in Colombia are affected by violence at school and in their communities, precarious living conditions, as well as forced relocation, sexual exploitation or drug use and trafficking.

 

Fundación Colombianitos focuses on these at-risk children and adolescents, providing them with a safe place to play football. The organisation uses football as a tool to protect children from violence, drug abuse, sexual exploitation, but also to educate about decision-making, life skills and conflict resolution.

 

Colombianitos offers a wide range of activities besides football like music classes, computer classes, professional training, and more.

 

Additionally, the organisation’s Landmine Awareness Education programme focuses on highly affected communities and promotes awareness of the dangers of landmines in the country.
