Both groups, one in Veracruz and the other in Tlaxcala, closured labors of 2010 with a ceremony with all the young volunteers and the adult students. For two months they worked together in two-hour daily sessions on topics like literacy, basic math and natural sciences, among others, depending on the interest of each group. During the weekends other workshops about health, bakery, vermicompost and phytotherapy were held.
Also, twice a week activities for teenagers were carried out in the communities using the methodology of Tlalana, other project by Adeco, looking to build local development projects. Likewise, kids under 13 years attended a workshop to promote lecture and with musical activities planned together with our project Canto que Florece
