A beautiful day filled with magic, joy, and fun was experienced by our boys, girls, and teenagers from the Lipaya headquarters during the celebration of the Day of the Little Angels. They had the opportunity to enjoy activities such as face painting, a bubble show, balloon twisting, and much more. In addition to sharing a moment of recreation and much happiness, they were able to reinforce their social skills.
During this session, at the Lipaya headquarters, evaluative activities were carried out. Through Likert-type scales on life skills and the environment, we aim to measure the impact of the projects developed throughout the year on our affiliates. Likewise, a space for reflection and self-assessment was provided to them through fun contests and trivia.
During this session, the boys and girls from the foundation participated in workshops that promoted equality, diversity, inclusion, and critical thinking. This was achieved through psychoeducation, the creation of an activity called “Race Crowns,” and a discussion titled “Expressing My Point of View.”
This week at the Soledad headquarters, we had a visit from the Barranquilla Zoo Foundation to carry out various awareness activities on animal conservation and citizen participation with an environmental focus. During these activities, the children were able to learn about important aspects of the jaguar, one of the candidates in the “zooelections.”
In our nutritional workshops, we teach parents how they can feed their families consistently, consciously, and lovingly. Each workshop includes a theoretical and practical space with ingredients, tasting for everyone, and a nutritional guide for replicating the recipe at home.
This week, we focused on how to prepare plant-based meat using soy protein, as it is a versatile food that can be included in different preparations.
Young people from the “Community Leaders” project participated in the forum “Voices with Value,” a learning space where different perspectives on issues and common conflicts in communities were shared. In this activity, various public and private entities participated, including the Secretary of Government, the Formar Educational Corporation, the Family Commissioner, Police Inspections, the Ombudsman’s Office, Community Police, and the People’s Defender.
The beneficiaries of the Soledad headquarters had an unforgettable day at the Megua Biotematic Park, a place where boys and girls were able to have a close encounter with nature. They interacted with different animals, went on an ecological walk, had sensory experiences, and enjoyed various outdoor games.
This week, volunteers from the Bolívar Davivienda Foundation visited us to conduct strengthening workshops with the Youth Leadership Project. During the learning session, various topics were addressed, including tips for public speaking, personal presentation, how to create a resume, and the importance of technological tools in everyday life.
This week at the Soledad headquarters, we worked on the proper use of items on the table, body posture, and the appropriate words to address the people with whom we share during mealtime. A polite person handles themselves with ease at the table, both in using utensils and in interacting with others.
