Champions of Peace - Spring 2018

Jefferson is a self-assured and articulate 15-year-old from Buenaventura, but he hasn’t always been the confident young man he is today. Growing up in a place where conflict, extortion, drugs and domestic abuse are common can have a severe impact on children’s mental health. When Jefferson joined the project a few years ago he was painfully shy; he would stare at the ground and couldn’t make eye contact with the adults who spoke to him.  

After a year of participating in our project with Fundescodes, Jefferson was unrecognisable! The project has helped him discover his passion for film making and photography. Now he makes films that shine a light on the reality of life for young people in his community, one of the most violent and historically neglected in all Colombia. 

Jefferson is proof that even in the most difficult places, when given a chance and safe surroundings, children can flourish and become the champions of peace in Colombia.

Please help children like Jefferson to do more with their lives than they ever knew was possible.
