UNFORGETTABLE DAY IN ISTMINA - GNRC - COLOMBIA The celebration of the first World Day of Prayer and Action for Children in Istmina made history in November 2013 by breaking the routine of a population accustomed to spending its days under the influence of alcohol, fights, and boredom due to a lack of space, leisure time, and community integration. Girls and boys of the St. Augustine sector demonstrated the core values they learned in workshops: EMPATHY, RESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT and RECONCILIATION. The day was characterized by movies, plays, dances, sports, prayer, entertainment and a parade through the narrow streets of the neighborhood with children and youth playing drums and musical instruments. These are uncommon occurrences in this area which is often flooded by the mighty river Rio San Juan. The celebration of World Day took place in a community threatened by violence between families and serious problems such as hunger, child labor, child neglect, alcoholism and disregard for the rights of young people of the neighborhood. Thanks to the GNRC this UNFORGETTABLE DAY was possible in the remote population of the Choco jungle. On behalf of the children and youth in the neighborhood of San Augustine Istmina, Choco expresses to all who made this celebration, ONE THOUSAND THANKS. The WORLD DAY IN ISTMINA is now a part of history and gives hope to us in LEARNING TO LIVE TOGETHER.

UNFORGETTABLE DAY IN ISTMINA -

GNRC - COLOMBIA

The celebration of the first World Day of Prayer and Action for Children in Istmina made

history in November 2013 by breaking the routine of a population accustomed to

spending its days under the influence of alcohol, fights, and boredom due to a lack of

space, leisure time, and community integration.

Girls and boys of the St. Augustine sector demonstrated the core values they learned in

workshops: EMPATHY, RESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT and RECONCILIATION.

The day was characterized by movies, plays, dances, sports, prayer, entertainment and a

parade through the narrow streets of the neighborhood with children and youth playing

drums and musical instruments. These are uncommon occurrences in this area which is

often flooded by the mighty river Rio San Juan.

The celebration of World Day took place in a community threatened by violence between

families and serious problems such as hunger, child labor, child neglect, alcoholism and

disregard for the rights of young people of the neighborhood.

Thanks to the GNRC this UNFORGETTABLE DAY was possible in the remote population of

the Choco jungle.

On behalf of the children and youth in the neighborhood of San Augustine Istmina, Choco

expresses to all who made this celebration, ONE THOUSAND THANKS.

The WORLD DAY IN ISTMINA is now a part of history and gives hope to us in LEARNING TO

LIVE TOGETHER.
