Just at the end of last June, the GNRC implemented an Ethics Education workshop, based on the Learning to Live Together manual, in the Colombian Choco. The participants, women, youth and children of the neighborhood of Augustine in Istmina, described very clearly the situations of violence and poverty of the neighborhood. The river and its banks are full of degradable and non-degradable waste, mothers are abused by their husbands or partners, children are abused by their parents, their bodies are violated by the lack of food, girls are sexually abused by drunken adults, their basic rights are violated by the lack of education and job opportunities.
