Campaign Recycle for Colombianitos
To support its programs and in partnership with Kimberly Clark, COLOMBIANITOS has launched its recycling campaign 'Recycle for Colombianitos "with the goal of collecting originally from here until the end of the year at least 1 ton of paper within each school that join us, then the campaign will remain in the participating schools with different goals regularly. Through this campaign COLOMBIANITOS seeks not only to generate resources that self-sustain its programs which nowadays reach more than 4,000 children, but to help encouraging environmental awareness in educational institutions in the country, their teachers, students, administrative and operational staff.
We invite all schools in the country to join this noble campaign, as it has done our first ally, The Jose Joaquín Casas School, where pooling of efforts not only contribute to the future of our children, it will also have an important effect over environmental awareness!
