Publication year:




pdf (3.8 MiB)


Colombia has been immersed in a civil war for more than fifty years in a brutal conflict between different armed groups. Young children are caught up in the long-running civil conflict, with a devastating impact on their lives and their physical and emotional development – the psychosocial and cognitive implications for the youngest children suffering the impact of conflict or devastation may be particularly serious and long lasting. Putumayo, Magdalena Medio and Arauca are three of the areas that have been most heavily impacted by violence over the past years, and were selected to be the focus of the study on the impact of war that affect Colombian children during early childhood, supported by the Organization of Iberoamerican States for Education, Science and Culture. This publication is a joint effort by Save The Children Canada, the Canadian International Development Agency, Observatorio del Conflicto de la Corporación Nuevo Arco Iris (New Rainbow Corporation), and the Organization of Ibero-American States Institute for Development and Innovation in Early Childhood Education and for Childhood Rights in Colombia.
