The EU decided to dedicate the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize money to four projects for children who are denied the chance of growing up in peace. As part of this decision and together with the UNHCR we are providing educational support to 4.750 Colombian children and teenagers, including 3200 refugees in Ecuador, and to 500 children and adolescents belonging to indigenous peoples that are threatened by the armed conflict. Colombian singer Andrea Echeverri joins the project with her song.
