Powerful Teens. Powered by YOU: Colombia

When teens solve problems in their communities, something amazing happens.
Watch them reach out to the homeless in Colombia.


CI teens saw that homeless citizens in their community were suffering because they didn’t have access to basic services and hygiene products.


Teens organized a special event where they gave 125 homeless men and women haircuts, toiletries, a shirt, shoes, a meal … and friendship.

The steps our teens follow to create change:

By carrying out these projects and seeing their impact, teens learn they can be leaders of change in their communities.

It's amazing what these kids can do & have done for their communities. I'm so glad I've been able to sponsor a girl from Guatemala since she was 5 and this year she turned 18. I just wish I could do more for her. Children's International is the best organization to sponsor a child or even several children if you are able. May God continue to always bless everyone who is involved.

This was a wonderful story. Bought tears to my eyes. I think all children should watch this and see what a difference all children can make regardless of race, age and financial background.

Es algo verdaderamente maravilloso el que los jovenes no sean indiferentes ante los problemas sociales existentes y que al ser ellos agentes de cambio hacen que sea invaluable ser padrino de un niño porque son el futuro de la sociedad nuestros niños...
