Astrid and Ruth
Two students from the Mbaracajú Educational Center, Astrid Yaday Cáceres (senior), and Ruth Díaz (junior) along with other 30 students from all around Paraguay have been selected among a large number of applicants to participate at the 2013 Youth Leadership School organized by “Juventud Que se Mueve (JQM)” or Youth Moves, an organization dedicated to promoting youth social participation in Paraguay.
This opportunity provides a platform for development and exchange of knowledge and learning, and is targeted to young people who want to be actors of social transformation and the strengthening of democracy in Paraguay. It consists of several meetings, camps and forums that will allow students to strengthen their leadership.
These two young ladies have already participated in the first camp, and the exchange experience with other young leaders from the country has been very valuable and rewarding for them.
They are happy to be able to share this experience with the rest of the students at the Mbaracayú Educational Center, as they continue to build skills to become leaders and agents of change in their communities and the world!
Thank you to our dear supporters for being part of our student's success and growth!
