FOSTERING COMMUNITIES THROUGH YOUTH EMPOWERMENT

English in Risaralda and Caldas

Charlotte Joyce2 Comments

Nukanti recently welcomed our first group of English language instructors to the departments of Risaralda and Caldas. Three volunteers arrived from the United States and Czech Republic to take part in our two month pilot project to teach English in various communities within the beautiful coffee region of Colombia. The program entails building leadership and empowerment and raising the educational level of the children with whom we work.

Our volunteers provide English instruction to local teachers, as well as children, to leave a greater impact once they have returned home. With sustainability and local empowerment at the core of our mission, we look forward to a successful two months.Also, please note that we will be seeking another group of volunteers for the continuation of this project in January 2013. Keep an eye out for more information and how to apply.Check back regularly to read blog posts from our volunteers in the field!Nukanti recently welcomed our first group of English language instructors to the departments of Risaralda and Caldas.
