Fuerabamba and Chicñahui communities.
Build, fit out and commission the “Tierra de Niños” Promotion Centre to develop and strengthen children and young people’s leadership skills.
We carried out this project through NGO “Asociación para la Niñez y su Ambiente” (ANIA). A Tierra de Niños Promotion Centre and a pilot centre (on a lesser scale) were built in the Fuerabamba and Chicñahui communities, respectively. In those centres, children participate in activities and learning workshops in the areas of self-management, natural resources management, environmental health and artistic expression; development of skills, attitudes and values through management committees involving children and parents; creation of organisational and leadership skills to generate initiatives for the sustainability of their assigned pieces of land that would later lead to decisions and actions that will benefit the community. At the same time, community promoters received training and currently are in charge of the centre.
