Pertinent Education

By Ron Brenneman | Project leader

For education to be pertinent, it must be developed within the context of daily challenges and opportunities that face local community life and development. Quality learning takes place as our hands apply what our heads have learned.

Amun Shea, Center for Integrated Development strives to provide the opportunity for young people to develop themselves into agents of change in their communities, with the attitude, ability and confidence required to promote and effect the desired change. Our hands-on methodology sparks a positive can-do attitude which creates confidence. We have had a good level of success in breaking "classroom routine" with a periodic focus on special achievement fairs and presentations.

The recent focus on security and peace education amidst the increase in violence and criminal activity within El Salvador and the Central America region has lead us to redouble our effort in building a culture of peace. While our last report described activities we are employing to this end, we are now building curriculum around peace. The incorporation of music, karate and a Korean colleague who brings a mixture of taekwondo and life planning are concrete steps in personal development and are creating very positive results.

We are confident it may serve as a model for communities in similar conditions throughout Latin-America, but we need to strengthen and consolidate it first. We need your help for that! Please help us get the word out and consider us for continued support. Thank you!
