First, I would like to thank our generous 100 donors for their contributions. Amid this international economic situation and international dissatisfactions from political instabilities to natural disasters, I am truly thankful for all of your trust in investing in this cause. Unfortunately, homelessness in Barcelona is increasing which is forcing us to get creative by making use of our limited resources while addressing this cause to mitigate against further dilemma's.
HOW? 20 university students from Lebanese American University (LAU) joined our team in Barcelona for one week in our community challenge workshop. The workshop aimed to raise awareness of the current city planning and social structure, aiding students with tools to campaign and create change. Workshop consisted mainly of intense 2-day-workshop with series of lectures about NGO's role and Architectural Activism limitations without social consensus and finally the use of technology to address various societal, environmental and economic issues. A special thank you to all my colleagues that made this workshop possible: Cristina Castelao, Jaime Sanz de Haro, Mbongeni Ngulube, Valentina Maini, Jonathan Minchin, Rodrigo Carbajal and Duncan.
Last but not least, I would like to wish a happy 2012 to all our donors and friends and wish them a happy sustainable year!
