A new year full of new challenges.

As we start to say goodbye to the summer vibes, and kids start a new school year, we get ready to receive a new group of participants in our coding program. 

During this time, we made a recap of all our learning during 2018 and made a new plan for this year to be even more fun and filled with experiences for participants- in fact our teachers had a lot of fun making robots (as seen on the pict)

Though every year we receive a new group of participants, that doesn’t mean that we loose touch with those who participated in previous years, in fact, one of our 2018 participants, had an idea for an app and he wanted to pitch it, so, our teacher organized a meeting with an app development company for him to do so. It was a great meeting, and he got great feedback to keep trying, to not give up on his dreams and ideas and to always remember that Edison didn’t fail 100 times, he just found 100 ways things didn’t work out properly.

Year's end balance

A new year has finished and the girls had lots of reasons to celebrate their year’s achievements. That is why they decided to team up outside the field and cook empanadas – traditional Argentinian meal- to sell them and raise money to travel all together, and not only did all of our staff joined forces, but also the girls families as they joined us during the cooking day.

 

Camping for two days outside the city, facing new challenges all together, having fun and celebrating was the goal for the team. It surpassed expectations and despite the heavy rain, nothing could cloud the happiness of celebrating a year full of learnings and life long lasting friendships. 

 

With lots of extra activities, programing, deep conversations and a great team of friends a new year has finished, it is time to make a balance and plan for a fresh start to empower a new  team out of poverty during 2019. We count on you to help us make it a reality. 

 

On a general note, we celebrated the end of the year with all our programs participants and their families in a carnival-like activity in the community park with lots of games. It was a day packed with fun where we could see the results of everything we worked for during the year.

What question you wouldn't ask anybody?

This was the opening question for one of the last lessons of the year. It was made to spark intrigue on how Chat Bots work and to program them- which eventually happened, but most interesting was the conversation on what the kids don’t dare to ask anyone. The conversation included feminism and gender based violence and great conclusions that the whole group where able to make with our facilitators help and guidance. 

 

As an extra activity kids watched the movie “Wonder” to discuss about bullying and discrimination. If you haven’t watched it yet- Do it! You won’t regret it.
