Sports during quarantine

Facing the quarantine due to COVID 19 has been a challenge for Tiempo de Juego. For fourteen years we have been doing face to face activities and, all of a sudden, we had to start thinking in our job in a virtual, non- physical contact way. Technology is not easily found in most of the communities we work with, so meetings at zoom, meets, teams - as it is done worldwide- is not possible for achieving our goals. Therefore, we have created Virtual Tiempo de Juego, using basic social networks to keep spreading our message.

This way, we have made psychosocial challenges that involve family interaction, to promote healthy family dynamics, and technical challenges that involve different exercises and physical activities to promote healthy lifestyles for our participants. All these, through Facebook, Whatsapp, and other basic social networks. 

It hasn't been easy to reinvent ourselves and the way we reach our participants. Nevertheless, we acknowledge the importance of improving virtual methods, because there are still more than 5000 children at their homes waiting for activities that improve their cognitive, social, and technical skills.

These times have also been used to improve the community leader's training in different topics as gender focus, technical and psychosocial skills. The latter will help us to provide better training spaces for every participant, in any discipline of sports, arts, or technology.

We'll keep facing this challenge with optimism and creativity, to achieve our main mission: Use the game as a tool to create change agents in different communities.
