The capacity of the (para) professionals in supporting children affected by conflict is fundamental to the quality of support provided to the children.

Educational opportunities for those supporting children are limited in Colombia, and there is a lack of knowledge on psychosocial development needs of children affected by the conflict, which is crucial to the other projects supported by CCF.

For this reason, CCF supports projects that build upon the local capacity of (para) professionals through formal courses, workshops, training opportunities, and mentoring programs. Impact from these projects will be seen initially through qualifications of those undertaking the capacity building, and later through the enhanced quality of the projects supported by the Foundation.
