Nurys graduated from the class of 2015 and has been working in the capital city of Asunción for some time. She has quickly succeeded in her work, recently receiving a recognition offered by the clients of the local fast food joint in which she has been working for a year. She has received a recognition granted by the directors of his work. Nurys joins the list of students who excel in their work thanks to the learning and preparation they received at CEM. It is an achievement for girls who come from rural areas to make their way in the capital city. Our compliments to Nurys, and may more success continue to follow!
Graduates of the Center of Education Mbaracayu (CEM), from the classes of 2011, 2013, and 2014, Bianca, Neida and Ramona, presented at the 12th International Fair for Tourism, at the Festival of the Waterfalls, which took place in the city of Foz de Iguazu, Parana, Brazil. The graduates participated in this event thanks to their great work performance in the area of tourism at Fundación Moisés Bertoni, where they work successfully in tourism at the Moises Bertoni Scientific Monument and at the Mbaracayú Lodge.
The Festival is the largest fixed event in Foz do Iguaçu and the second largest in the southern region. Due to its geographic position of Brazil with Argentina and Paraguay, it allows the promotion of a business meeting between Mercosur tourism professionals. Focused mainly on generating business, strengthening and disseminating tourism at the national and international levels, it seeks sustainable development, emphasizes technological innovations, stimulates the production and dissemination of science, empowers professionals, positively impacting the entire tourism production chain. To have CEM graduates participate as star performers of the burgeoning tourism industry of Paraguay is very exciting!

Cirila with her certificate
Cirila, a 2011 graduate of the Mbaracayú School, received recognition from the US Embassy in Paraguay as part of the program Women for Change “She Rocks 2017” for being a woman who challenges gender stereotypes. Cirila is a park ranger, one of two women park rangers of the Natural Forest Reserve of Mbaracayú, a job she began when she was 19 years old. Although she breaks stereotypes by doing a job commonly performed by men, she believes that her work is not difficult and that she is respected by all her male peers. She is dynamic, with a lot of predisposition and with leadership capacity.
"Women for Change #SheRocks 2017" is a campaign that seeks to distinguish the outstanding work of women in Paraguay; the outstanding women were honored at an event held at the Embassy for the Day of Women in Paraguay and International Women's Day.
