A New Year, New Challenges

Another year came to an end and as usual we needed to celebrate all the acomplishments. We had a big party involving all of our programs participants, their families and our staff.

During the celebration, every program had their moment where they received a diploma and showed off what they had been doing during the year. When it came to our girl athletes, they read some words about what they learnt during the year that will last for a lifetime.

The rest of our programs also had their moment during the day to show the results of the year and to have fun playing outside, feeling safe and owning their future!

The next couple of months will mean planing time for our staff as we prepare for an exiciting new year, full of new challenges and with many surprises to come. Stay tunned!

Visits that warm our hearts

During this period, we continued to work through hockey on what´s really important- developing life skills that will make the difference in girls life’s. And what a better way to do so, than talking to other people that can share their stories.

First we had the visit of Agustina Bouza, a former “Leona” (National team player) who is also a local city council member. She shared her experience playing sports at the highest level, and how what she learnt helped her shape her life now, and what it means to be a city council member.

After that, we received a team visit from the UK – Spanish students who were visiting Rosario and wanted to share an afternoon with us. At the beginning language was an issue, but after a while, the common language of sports bonded everyone, and just like that, after an hour, it seemed that they all new together for so long.

On another note, our Happy Cities Festival was a total success- two days of inspiration to share knowledge and exchange ideas on how to create a better city for all.

Coding and Company Visit

During the last month the kids where coding with an ideal user in mind. The purpose was that their code should help someone solve a problem they had. With that in mind they worked with different ideas and made a special visit to a software company.

During the visit to the company they had the opportunity to interact with coders that create different apps and systems. One of the highlights of the visit was when one of our host told us that they’ve created an app for taxi drivers- that one of our participants new- cause her dad used it as he is a taxi driver.

Among the questions that the kids made, one specially caught our attention, they asked the employees from the firm “How do they handle frustration when they are not allowed to do what they want?”
