Graduation of Denisse Tenorio and Kelvin Vargas, students of the Fundación A. Jean Brugger Scholarship program.
This past Sunday, April 15, Fundación A. Jean Brugger scholarship students received the second training on the crime of human trafficking provided by officials of the Institute of Strategic Study and Public Policy (IEEPP). IEEPP is partnering with the Fundación to raise awareness of this crime against the most vulnerable people in the municipality of San Juan del Sur.
The objective of this activity with our scholarship students was to provide information and necessary tools in order that the students are able to educate people about this problem in the different communities where they do community service projects.
This second training was with a more participatory, experiential and practical methodology. A report was presented on the problems in the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua highlighting actual cases. The students were divided into three groups, each of which was presented with a different case history of human trafficking.
The students were required to work through a questionaire to help them analyze, reflect and propose measures of action. With this second training the scholarship students are prepared to begin implementing this knowledge in their social initiatives with children, adolescents and parents of families.
Fundación A. Jean Brugger scholarship students are preparing to implement their social initiatives in the communities of San Juan del Sur.
In March 2018, Fundación A. Jean Brugger officially welcomed Lismadiela Baez Yubank into the scholarship program. Lismadiela is originally from the Israel Zacarías Mora neighborhood of San Juan del Sur.
Lismadiela is studying medicine at the Autonomous University of Nicaragua UNAN-Managua, and she is in the second year of her university career.
Her sponsor is Barbara Vazquez. This is the first time that Ms. Vazquez has sponsored a Fundación A. Jean Brugger student and the staff of the Fundación thanks her for the trust she has placed in the Fundación, for supporting the education of Lismadiela Baez, and for supporting the educational development of the youth of San Juan del Sur.
The members of Fundación A. Jean Brugger welcome Lismadiela Baez and her sponsor Bárbara Vázquez into the Fundación A. Jean Brugger family.
