Spreading new healing tool in El Salvador

Over the past two months, the IBREA team has been sharing a new self-healing tool all around the country, with +500 participants! 

Spread out in the 14 departments of El Salvador, these +500 new participants are receiving IBREA's full curriculum and enhancing their practice with this new tool, called Healing Life. It provides an opportunity for deeper benefits, including the improvement of the inmmune system, digestive tract, blood circulation and other physical benefits, while generating the production of serotonine and dopanime, the "happy hormones", and increaseing awareness and concentration. 

Participants have reported many benefits in themselves, their families and their school community. Teachers and principals who participated in IBREA's training in 2012 to 2015 have joined us this year and are assisting our training while they keep replicating to more groups. This is how the program has become self-sustainable and keeps impacting a larger amount of people! 

Last week, the new +500 participants have all been providing a replication of the program in their school and community. The replication of the program is an intrinsic part of their learning, and a necessary component to become certified by IBREA at the end of the year. Next week, we will hold national exams and in mid-December we'll have a nation-wide conference, where they will receive their certificates.

Thank you for your continued support to El Salvador! In 5 years, we have gone a long way with your invaluable help.

Please take an action in this beautiful Thanksgiving holiday week and contribute to this amazing cause that makes our world brighter and brighter!

Muchas gracias!

Youth Mental Wellbeing Conference at the UN

Grecia and Laura participated in our recent World Peace Leadership program, and represented El Salvador at our Youth Mental Wellbeing Conference at the United Nations.

Laura has been participating in our program in El Salvador since 2011. Since then, she maintains a strong mindset and will to keep overcoming obstacles and grow. You can see more details about her story in our project "Send Laura to College". Grecia, a student at the National University of El Salvador, has been receiving our program since 2013 and has been volunteering for us since then. At the young age of 18, she takes care of many of our teacher participants in El Salvador, communicates with government counterparts, and helped start up our program in Costa Rica in 2014.

They are both exemplary students of our program and an inspiration to other young participants from around the world. As such, they took part in our World Peace Leadership program this past July 30th to August 5th, and developed their leadership skills at the global level.

Laura also provided her testimony at the United Nations ECOSOC Chamber on August 3rd. In a room packed with over 600 people, including many NYU and Columbia University students, she shared her story of determination and strength growing up in one of the poorest and most violent areas of San Salvador, and making it to University. She stood proud as a living example of the power of mental wellbeing and positivity. 

IBREA recently signed the extension of its Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of El Salvador and plans many activities from August to December 2016 in the country. We'll keep you posted!

Thank you always for your support to our program in El Salvador.

Planning IBREA activities in El Salvador in 2016

Hello supporters of IBREA El Salvador!

We recently visited El Salvador to have discussions with all our parterns in the country: the Ministries of Education and Foreign Affairs as well as ISBM (Institute for Educator's Wellbeing). We negotiated the terms of our work in 2016 and took the opportunity to meet all the IBREA coordinators from the different 14 Departments in the country. We also met Laura, who is doing great in University and helping IBREA activities.

We have exciting 2016 plans to share with you, including the establishment of an IBREA training and research center in San Salvador, and developing research indicators to measure our program's contribution to the UN SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) in the country. We will also provide Instructor Training to 300 teachers who are part of the Government's Capacity Building program for Teachers, and are meant to be mentors for other teachers.

After five years of IBREA's presence in El Salvador, there are over 1,000 educators certified by IBREA and they are ready to take more ownership and make the program sustainable. The long term goal is to increse the impact of IBREA's work on reducing violence and improving socio-economic conditions in the communities where we have been working - through the growth and increased confidence of individuals receiving the program.

Please keep being a part of this process and make your donation today! We need a lot of support, especially to establish the Center in San Salvador.

Thank you so much.
