Google, supported gender equality in Ciudad Bolívar and Usme
June 22, 2018
June 22 was a memorable day for the girls of our communities, who were invited to the workshop, Made with Code,page created by this North American multinational, with the aim of teaching how to program, and make visible different professions, traditionally occupied by men, and to which the woman can also access.
There was a fun day and especially learning, in which volunteers from Google of different nationalities participated and who led the activity groups for two hours in their facilities.
This great partnership with GOOGLE, is allowing us to generate marketing and technology processes in Laudes Infantis, which has been aligned with ICT training, the use and good use of the Internet, as well as access to virtual educational platforms. All this in order that children and youth from the towns of Ciudad Bolívar, Usme and San Cristóbal Sur, can access better educational and economic opportunities.
“Dreams that Inspire, the Tour of the World on a Sailboat”, for more education
June 8, 2018
From June 8 to 17, the PALATINO Shopping Center opened its doors and made it possible to generate the photographic exhibition “DREAMS THAT INSPIRE, RETURN TO THE WORLD IN A SAILBOAT”. This is a small sample of the great “Ocean Adventure” lived by Kike Fenollosa, a Spaniard who fulfilled his dream of traveling around the world on a sailboat, for 4 years and who donated 40, of the thousands of images that I capture on its way to the Laudes Infantis Foundation, with the sole purpose of raising funds and supporting the education of the young people of Ciudad Bolívar, San Cristóbal and Usme.
The attendees had the opportunity to purchase altarpieces and postcards, with the photographs of Kike’s trip, on the back of which were reflected some small reviews with the dreams of some young people who want to support their educational training.
We want to thank those who joined this cause to promote the education of the young people of the localities and especially KIKE FENOLLOSA, who joins to support our social processes with their experiences and photography, at the PALATINO SHOPPING CENTER, Grupo Zarate Publicidad , the singer Andreo of the musical group Los P-Tres and those who donated their time and work for this cause.
Feminine Gymnasium and Laudes, for an inclusive society
May 30, 2018
Last May, an activity was held in the Bella Flor neighborhood, Ciudad Bolívar, within the annual “VALORA LA VIDA, AVENTÚRATE A VIVIRLA” campaign, which aimed to be a communication bridge between the community of Bella Flor, Ciudad Bolívar and the Gimnasia community, through the exchange of skills to generate education, empathy and recognition in a reciprocal environment.
This activity was carried out thanks to the coordination with the students of the CAS course of the Feminine Gymnasium and the children and young people of the Laudes Infantis Foundation.
As a result of the teamwork, it was a mural in which a Salamandra was drawn, a symbol of Laudes Infantis, with which the resilience and overcoming capacity of the human being is expressed in the face of adversities or difficulties, in order to achieve its objectives and a dignified life. The mural was finalized with the hands of all the participants, as a sign of solidarity and cooperativism, fundamental factors to create a better country.
This is a sample of how we can generate meaningful connections, between lives and different realities, through volunteering or the development of social practices.
