Ingrid commented on The 10 to 16 Program

Greetings Nadia Naviwala 
Your projects approach to provide a pathway towards empowerment through traditional and vocational education is truly inspiring! Here at Tejiendo Futuros (Weaving Futures) we are also committed to a holistic education model that will prepare our students in Guatemala for a financially and environmentally sustainable future. When you are available, I would love to take the time for some shared learning regarding your employability skills mentioned in your summary as part of you curriculum.
Warmest wishes,

Allison, neighborkids' use of community asset mapping and encouraging the youth to creatively write the stories of their futures touches the heart of what we are trying to accomplish with Tejiendo Futuros. It would be a pleasure to connect further and see how our children and communities can build each other up!
Abrazos, Ingrid Neighborkid Changemakers

Dearest Paul~ We could not agree with you more about the wonders and empowerment that comes with reading aloud. Currently, our students are engaging in a semester long project where groups are reading out loud to each other. Our ultimate goal in this particular instance is to introduce our students to the joys of reading especially because many of our parents are illiterate, limiting student access and exposure to reading at home. If you have any suggestions to encourage parent participation despite this obstacle I would be interested in chatting more! Paul Ennis
