Last year, we began a series of leadership workshops for youths in the periphery of Rio de Janeiro, in partnership with Active Citizens British Council. This month we began a new cycle training wonderful passionate leaders who work with vulnerable children. Through a series of games and challenges, we discussed the ideas of identity, dialogue and community dynamics to empower them to raise their voice and take actions in their communities to affect a positive change.
Taking advantage of the beautiful landscape surrounding SINAL, we integrated the characteristics of our spaces and the forest into the activities, believing that connecting with nature and feeling the calmness that it provides helped the participants to relax, feel more at home and in tune with each other.
A big thank you to all our donors for helping us make events like this possible. Last year, our class of leaders ended up creating a project that impacted public policy in their community! we can't wait to see what this year will bring.
