“Genious is in the idea. Impact, however, comes from action.”
As we mentioned in the last report, our 2017 finished with a conclusion that the pilot proyect of implementing our social reinsertion program in two new orphanages has been successful and that we are ready to acompany more girls in their transition of becoming independent young women.
For this year, 17 girls passed the selection process and and they will be mixed in two groups with participants from three other institutions, giving in total 30 participants from 5 different institutions for the year 2018.
A part of the individual evaluations and inital inductions to the program, we have been planning the yearly calendar that will be enriched with additional technical skills such as use of technology, culinary skills, etc... and strenghtening existing modules such as how to manage personal finances, creating carreer plan, professional orientation, etc.. in order to build up their self-esteem even more and give them variety of tools to be independent emotionally and economically.
Each participant will recieve:
- 300h of workshops
- 80h of personal mentoring
- 30h of individual follow up
- 16h of professional mentoring
- 15h of psycological assistance
Actualizing our measurement system, we have concluded that we can create even bigger impact by adding additional "Do it Yourserlf Tasks" in different types of enviroment that our participants face. In order to achieve that we are updating all our workshops and mentoring system.
Our team is very excited to work with so many different profiles and having the challenge of mixing groups, so we can create one big network of friends that can support each other, as for participants, as for our mentors.
This is also the year that our graduates that entered last year will have their university graduation and will step up into the independent working world.
Thank you once again for the opportunity to share our passion,
Your TaV team
Meeting our new participants
