Today we held a workshop in the congregation Castillo Fuerte (Mighty Fortress) in far north-east Bogota. The community is made up of many people that have been displaced from rural areas during the armed conflict of Colombia. The workshop was with children and was about the rights of the child. It was humbling to listen to the children making connections between the vague rights written down on paper in international agreements and the reality of their country.
