When Toon said to me 'I'm going to volunteer at a barber project in Colombia' I immediately felt: I have to go here too!
Passing on your profession to children who are really motivated for a better future and that too in Spanish, it had to be this way.
After an intensive, special week of working with Yino at Niños del futuro, I wanted to continue to work for this foundation, because it was so much more than teaching! I was able to get to know the children, each child with their own story and one by one they touched me, I want to make this my life's goal to help these and more children. I have noticed that Niños del futuro is not just a foundation, it is one big family and I am extremely grateful that I can be part of it. Offering these and more children a safe heaven where they can be themselves, receive love and also contribute to a better future. We are in the world to help each other, and this is the beginning!
My name is Britt, 29 years old and I come from The Hague, the Netherlands. In November 2022 I was on holiday in Medellín. There I first came into contact with Yino and therefore also with the Ninos del Futuro foundation.
He talked about the foundation and the projects he does with the children in La Honda. Two days later I went with him to the neighborhood. The children hugged me and showed me the neighborhood where they live and the projects they are working on.
The energy that the children radiate and the way they care for each other as a family, even under sometimes difficult circumstances, made me want to contribute to this foundation. Together with Shannon, we have therefore set up a campaign to raise money for Christmas packages to hand out to children in the neighborhood, so that they too receive the extra attention and love they deserve during the holidays. This was followed by several projects I helped on, such as the Happy Nappers project.
In the Netherlands, I have been working for almost 6 years now at an organization that helps children and young people with psychological problems. My heart has always been in helping and contributing to a better future for children. Ninos del Futuro showed me that there are children all over the world who could use this help, and for that reason I proudly joined the Ninos del Futuro community!
My name is Toon Jumelet and I am 26 years old.
Through a friend of mine I had been following Ninõs Del Futuro on Instagram for a while. I became more and more interested in the projects and how it all works. One impulsive afternoon I decided to contact Yino and we immediately set up a plan to come over and help with the barber project.
Working at Ninõs Del Futuro gives me a lot of motivation and inspiration. Working with youth and looking to the future is the best thing there is. The atmosphere at Ninõ Del Futuro is very nice and offers a stable and safe platform for children to become who they want to be.
