During our visit to Paraguay, as part of the YEEE Project, all organizations are part of the Training Course focused on social entrepreneurship in rural areas through non-formal education and coordination for the following exchange activities in Mexico.
The activities carried out as energizers, games, team work, among others, helped to create good dynamics and connection among the organizations. Which, in turn, generated a good synergy and approach to create feasible proposals for the other projects.
From a perspective where non-formal education is not completely linked in our daily life, we find it quite enriching as a tool and methodology to learn. The knowledge acquired, such as Roger Hart’s participatory staircase, has been of great benefit to be applied in the In Terris Foundation projects, as it has constant links with nearby communities. One of the phrases that we take from the course is that “the same solution is not applicable for all realities / communities”, many times we believe to be right for what has been experienced or worked in another sector, however the first step is always listen to the needs of the other.
Having known a little more about all the organizations and their contribution to society, it was really inspiring to continue growing and creating new projects.
