Harness kid's creativity into social actions

Sep 3, 2013


Aflatoun's day

During this period the children and youth who participated in the program performed the following activities:

They visited the Casa del Árbol de los Derechos (Tree House of Rights), where they learned to incorporate their rights and preventing risky situations into their daily lives.

They also visited the Museum of Memory and Tolerance, where, through recreational activities, knew the role of the media in creating myths and stereotypes, and to appreciate the different cultures that exist in Mexico, with the intention of avoiding behaviors of discrimination and human rights violations.

There were three contests:

1. Story: Were children reflected their learning in the savings and rights topics.

2. Drawing: The winners were those who showed the focus of each grade, and will be the covers of upcoming books of Aflatoun.

3. Families: The winners demonstrated concrete actions to reduce their consumption of gas, water and electricity.

32 teachers that will be implementing the program, were also trained for the next school year. The beneficiary population of the 5 participating schools where 947 children, 48 teachers and 1,610 parents.

 Testimonial of the visit to the Museum of Memory and Tolerance:

"I learned that dialogue is not only talking, but also listening. I also learned that tolerance is something that we must apply to our daily lives. I also learned that a stereotype is the idea that we create a person we do not know, making ideas by judging their physical appearance".  Daniel V., student.
