The Canadian in town - a story by Veronique Allard about her experience with Nukanti's bilingualism program in Risaralda

After a month of volunteering with Nukanti in La Celia, a village in Colombia's beautiful coffee region, I'm going at full speed with the bilingualism project and I'm starting to feel grounded with the community. I can hardly walk around without being stopped every few metres. Students always want to say “Hi” and the younger ones like to run after me, asking me to translate various Spanish words in English. Up and down the main street, a stream of “Hello”, “Profe”, “Teacher” or “Veronica” follows me all day long. Although I'm not technically a teacher it feels wonderful to be recognized and appreciated.

Youth Conference for Human Rights: Albinism

Admittedly, albinism is something that I have never given much thought to. I was actually quite surprised when I saw it appear as a workshop title amongst other issues during our week in Valencia discussing Human Rights. Yes, I knew what the condition was, I've even met people with the condition before. However, these people I have met... I'd never considered their lives to be much different to my own. Their skin, hair and general appearance was different, but I could never imagine it hindering their daily lives.
