LOTS OF GREAT NEWS - MUCHAS BUENAS NOTICIAS

Hey Guys!

These past weeks have been crazy for us, we are planning a closing event for this year "Education 4 Peace" project in the schools and it’s going great!

Let me tell you a little bit about this event. We have joined two other organizations to host an international seminar on "Education in conflict zones" and we have guests coming from all Latin America: Tom Miller - Head of Section, Teachers and Transversal Themes- from UNESCO; Brazilians working in the favelas through dance, sports and artistic performances; Mexican, Argentinean, and Chilean experts, all reunited for two days to share our experiences and keep on learning how to do our jobs so we can give our kids the best future possible.

But that’s not all, as closing event for this seminar; we are having a Fair! This Saturday we are having a PEACE CARNIVAL, children and young participants from the 3 schools are getting together and showing each other the results of their work, there is going to be dancing, singing, theater, graffiti and most important Peace being done.

And this brings us to some more great news: WE MADE THE NEWS! This past Sunday our project was profiled in the second most important newspaper in Colombia. They interviewed Victor -one of our participants- who is performing in the fair with his rap crew, and both Victor and the paper recognize our role in helping kids have a better future. Here is the link so you can read the article; unfortunately it is only in Spanish :(

Hola Amigos!

Estas últimas semanas han sido una locura, pues estamos planeando un evento para cerrar este año nuestro proyecto de "Educación para la Paz"

Para realizar este evento nos hemos unido con dos organizaciones mas, y esta semana seremos anfitriones del seminario internacional "La escuela en contextos armados" en el cual tendremos invitados de toda Latinoamérica, entre ellos: Tom Miller - Jefe de la sección de docentes y temas transversales de la UNESCO para América Latina y el Caribe-; varios grupos Brasileños que trabajan en las favelas a través del baile, el arte y el deporte; expertos Mexicanos, Argentinos y Chilenos. Todos reunidos por dos días para compartir las experiencias y continuar aprendiendo como hacer nuestro trabajo para brindarles a los niños y jóvenes un futuro mejor.

Pero eso no es todo, para cerrar el seminario, tendremos la FERIA PAZalobien! Este sábado reuniremos niños y jóvenes participantes de los 3 colegios para poner en común el trabajo hecho por cada uno, tendremos bailes, música, teatro, grafiti y aun más importante estaremos creando paz.

Y esto nos trae a más buenas noticias: El pasado domingo nuestro proyecto fue reconocido en el segundo periódico más importante de Colombia. En el artículo entrevistan a Víctor -uno de nuestros participantes- quien se presentara el sábado en la feria con su grupo de rap, y aquí les compartimos el link para que puedan ver el artículo.
