After successfully installation of new minilibraries we are moving forward to our next project which will put in the public agenda some subjects that Argentina is dealing with -not in a very smart way-, like criminality, drug dealers, quaility of public education and youth development. The idea is to make people think about these issues and show what approaches the country and society has been taking about them. We are developing a software and small documentaries for each issue of one and a half minute that will be showned in social media and also with our own tablets walking in the streets and asking people to participate. After the documentary, people will have to take a stand on the issue.
It has been intense this year and thanks to our 50 permanents volunteers we are reaching and inspiring more people to step in and share our dream of a better reality.
Thanks for your support we can keep on innovating and moving forward!
We are back from summer holidays and as promised on the last report, I can now share with you how our space looks like after the renovation we did. The space is designed to provide flexibility to our daily activities and to inspire the kids´ creativity.
Besides the renovations during the holiday season we were busy planning the activities for the rest of the year to be fun, inspiring and creative. We also implemented a custom- made information system that allow us to easily track the results of our activities, and the participants’ development.
For this 2014 we have signed in 108 kids in our activities and we still have some more open spots to fill.
This year at the E-learning program the main objective will be to develop the kids critical thinking as they use new media and digital tools. They started the year working in groups investigating about music, and created a blog, a video and a podcast as a result of their investigation during a month. During april they will be focusing in the advertising world.
As I always mention in my reports, you are welcome to visit us anytime to see first- hand how your support is making this project possible, and please if you have any questions, remarks or ideas, contact me on Facebook, Twitter or via mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.

As for Garabato, most of the kids didn’t know themselves so they played a lot of games to help them know each other and their names. With that objective in mind, the first activity they made this year was a birthday calendar to put all their new friends date on it.
