Project Report | May 21, 2019
Our program in Bolivar enters a new and exciting phase!

Workshop Adapting to Change
Workshop Adapting to Change

ENGLISH VERSION

This quarter we have worked with many expectations. We have held three workshops with the youngsters focused on resilience, adaptation to change, and life testimonies. These workshops were held as a support measure, preparing them for a significant change to help them receive the new operator who is now in charge of their care. This change was made official in April 2019, and only until it was carried out was it formally announced to the boys in the care center. They showed a high degree of prevention and showed resistance.

This change involved suspending activities with young people between March and May. This month the activities are renewed and we are working with a new ally in two points:

1. Evaluation of the bakery workshop, equipment, and facilities. An assessment will be made to quantify the investment necessary to adapt the workshop to start internal production.

2. Budgeting to start the second training program. The investment needed to carry out the second training program for another 25 youngsters in Bolívar will be quantified.

We enclose some photos of our meetings this quarter, and a video of the testimonies made in February. We will keep you updated on developments during our next visit in May.

VERSION EN ESPAÑOL

¡Nuestro programa en Bolívar entra en una nueva y emocionante fase!

Este trimestre hemos trabajado con muchas expectativas. Hemos realizado tres talleres con los jóvenes enfocados en resiliencia, adaptación al cambio, y testimonios de vida. Estos talleres se realizaron como medida de apoyo, alistando a los jóvenes para un cambio significativo y abrirse a recibir al nuevo operador que está a cargo de su cuidado. Este cambio se oficializó en Abril de 2019, y sólo hasta que se llevó a cabo fue anunciado de manera formal a los jóvenes del centro de atención. Los jóvenes presentaron un alto grado de prevención y mostraron resistencia

Este cambio implicó suspender las actividades con los jóvenes entre marzo y mayo. Este mes se renuevan las actividades y nos encontramos trabajando con un nuevo aliado en dos puntos:

  1. Evaluación del taller de panadería, equipos e instalaciones. Se hará una revisión que permita cuantificar la inversión necesaria para adecuar el taller para iniciar producción interna.
  2. Presupuesto para dar inicio al segundo programa de formación. Se cuantificará la inversión necesaria para llevar a cabo el segundo programa de formación para otros 25 jóvenes en Bolívar.

Te adjuntamos algunas fotos de nuestros encuentros este trimestre, y un vídeo de los testimonios realizados en Febrero. Te mantendremos al tanto de los avances durante nuestra próxima visita de Mayo.
