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.

What does VR and T-shirt design have in common?

Experiencing Virtual Reality
Experiencing Virtual Reality

At first nothing, except that both of them are activities that the kids from the coding lab have been working on during the past months. 

You might think that none of this activites are really related to coding, however they tend to be essential to boost the design thinking mindset and code considering solving problems. 

 

You might consider that experiencing virtual reality goggles would be the most fun thing to do for a group of techies fan- but reality, interacting with team mates and experiencing real interactions turned out to be a blast. 

 

As I mentioned on the previous report, we are still working on the development of an app that could help solve daily problems, so ideas and thoughts are still welcomed.
