Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Colombia

Location: Armenia

Total Budget: $33,000

Area of Focus: Peacebuilding and conflict prevention

In the fisrt phase: to generate a sustainable educative project that promotes building positive peace actions in students, teachers, senior managers and families from the educational institution Santa Teresa de Jesús, Armenia. This project is the means not only to promote positive peace actions like collaborative work, sense of belonging, hope, values; but also, environmental awareness, that are going to be the result of Recycling practices. It is planned to offer awareness campaigns, training, recycling practice, working together with the educational community. The project is hoped to generate an initial impact in 350 students from 6th, 7th and 8th grades, their families, 15 teachers and senior managers and the recyclers, in the first phase in "Armenia City".

After, for this second phase of the RECICRAI project, school and family awareness are related to the materials collection process. It is intended to receive that material in the educational institution headquarters and in the additional ones where this initiative is added, as well as in the communities that wish to participate, in order that this collected material is compacted through a specialized machine.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
