Our Mi Ciudad Con Vida families had a day of fun and shopping. Through the “closet sale” strategy, familes had access to clothing, shoes and food items at token prices starting at $500 (COP).
Thanks to the ongoing training process for our beneficiary children at Mi Ciudad Con Vida in caring for the environment, the environmental guardians are motivated to continue the home garden project. On this occasion they received a delivery of portable gardens that facilitate cultivation in reduced spaces, aimed at self-sustainability.
Thanks to the support of the Barranquilla mayor’s office, 24 mothers who are leaders in the Lipaya neighborhood received resources including seed capital and business strengthening for their small-scale businesses, at a value of $500.000 (COP) each, for a total of $12.000.000 (COP).
There are small moments that invade our hearts and fill us with joy – this Christmas the children of San Jacinto, Bolívar received a wonderful surprise at their homes. Thanks to the support of our own Barranquilla artist, Shakira, we brought them a message of hope and solidarity.
With this heartfelt celebration we invited our beneficiaries and their families to awaken their Christmas spirit. The children performed various presentations and dances for the attendees, everyone enjoyed a Christmas breakfast that highlighted our conscious eating proposal, and then Santa Claus accompanied us to hand out gifts.
In the morning, we had a visit from employees from the Women’s Secretary Office for a roundtable discussion about different ways to respond to cases of violence against women in the Atlántico department. In addition, we spoke with parents and guardians to identify such possible cases in the area.
