I am delighted to share the news that Ada, a 17-year-old graduate from the town of Presidente Franco and a distinguished member of the 13th cohort at the Mbaracayú Educational Center, has been granted a full scholarship to pursue Agricultural Sciences at the prestigious Earth University in Costa Rica. This remarkable accomplishment stands as a testament to Ada's unwavering commitment and diligent efforts in her academic pursuits.
Your invaluable contributions have played a pivotal role in making dreams like Ada's a reality. Through your generosity, we have been able to support the Mbaracayú Educational Center and its exceptional students, facilitating access to quality education for girls in rural areas. Your donations have empowered these young minds with the necessary tools to not only attend university but also actively contribute to breaking down barriers of gender inequality.
As we reflect on Ada's success, we extend our heartfelt gratitude for your ongoing support. Your commitment has been instrumental in fostering positive change and creating opportunities for deserving individuals. We sincerely hope that you will continue to stand by our cause, enabling us to make a lasting impact on the lives of many more students like Ada.
We are very grateful for your generous support and trust in our work at the Mbaracayú Educational Center. Thanks to your contributions, we have been able to carry out many empowering and inspiring activities that benefit our students and our community. We would like to share some of the activities our former students have been involved in.
The Brotes de Mbaracayu Association, founded by former students of the Mbaracayú School, conducted two workshops on entrepreneurship and empowerment of rural women at the Mbaracayú Educational Center. The workshops were part of the project Kuña Mbarete: empowering rural and indigenous young women through the use of new technologies and training them to be future leaders of their communities. This project is funded by the L’Óreal Foundation and aims to promote the social and economic development of rural women, especially those who are part of the Mbaracayú Biosphere Reserve.
The workshops were attended by more than 30 young women from different communities and schools, who learned about topics such as business planning, marketing, financial management, leadership, and gender equality. The workshops were very dynamic and participatory, and the participants expressed their satisfaction and gratitude for the knowledge and skills they acquired.
These workshops are an example of the amazing work that the Brotes de Mbaracayu Association is doing to empower young women and create positive change in their communities. We are very proud of them and their mentors, who are former students of our school and have become role models for the new generations. We hope you are proud too, and we invite you to continue supporting us in our mission to educate and empower young women.
Ruth and Palmira, Mbaracayu School graduates from class of 2014 and 2011 respectively, assisted TECHCAMP, in cochabamba, Bolivia. The forum was focussed on “Disinformation in the Digital Era”.
The event was organized by the U.S. Embassy in Bolivia, with the support of the Bolivian Chamber of Commerce. It brought together more than 60 leaders from Latin America, hailing from countries such as Bolivia, Uruguay, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador and of course, Paraguay, with the objective of working on strategies against disinformation in the digital era.
Additionally, Ruth went on to participate in the 2nd Forum of the IberoMAB Youth Network, at the Water Biosphere and Peace Reserve in Costa Rica, organized by UNESCO. The event was aimed at young people who live, work or study in biosphere reserves in Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain and Portugal, and seeks to promote the participation of young people in the activities and management of iberoMAB biosphere reserves. Developed last November.
Ruht currently works as the head Pedagogical Coordinator at the Mbaracayú Educational Center.
