Colombia

The GNRC-Colombia celebrated the International Day For the Eradication of Poverty in Soacha (Cundinamarca Province) with women of the Growing Up Together project, by organising an event for 50 women care-givers and several children. The event, themed, “Supporting Each Other, We Can Make a Difference”, aimed at promoting generosity and sharing as a means to reduce poverty in the community.

Activity Recap

The event was also an opportunity for the women care-givers working in the textile micro-enterprise (of the ‘Growing Up Together’ project) to sell their hand-made products. In addition, the women care-givers participating in this project received a donation of an industrial sewing machine, provided by End Child Poverty through the Global Network of Religions for Children.
