How conflict and violence tears children’s lives apart.
Education is a privilege that is not accessible to all. Instead, the reality for many Colombians is survival. The torture that is seen daily is unimaginable, leaving many families and children very few options in life.
Literacy could be the road to freedom.
Generations of children left uneducated
Conflict in Colombia results in the forced recruitment of young children into a life of abuse, teachers being killed, and schools themselves damaged beyond repair. Those who want to create a normal life for themselves and, more importantly, for their children have no choice but to flee their communities, leaving many Colombians displaced.
The flow on effect is a long line of children who grow up without the basic literacy skills required to thrive in life.
