‘Defending Children’s Rights in Colombia’ by Victoria Illingworth

About the event

Victoria Illingworth shared her experiences of visiting Colombia and COTA’s partner organisations, some of the stories of the children she met and her thoughts about Colombia.

Victoria is the Events and Community Fundraiser of Children of the Andes (COTA). Her passion for working at COTA, the UK largest charity working exclusively in Colombia, comes from having studied International Relations and Development Studies at the University of Sussex and a Masters in Political Economy of Late Development at LSE.

Her interest in Latin America and the issues of children in the region face from growing up in Costa Rica. Last year, she had the privilege of visiting COTA partner organisations in Colombia.
