Sonja is Croatian and a great story teller. Diego is Paraguayan and a professional cameraman. They are members of Faces2Hearts, an initiative that seeks to draw attention and communicate, by means of their videos, the social impact of the projects funded by the European Union.
Our visitors toured with their cameras some of the communities, managing to capture the testimony of the protagonists of the process, girls and boys who have been prepared as trained school agents on promotion, prevention and surveillance in situations of violation of rights, especially towards girls and women; they are called “agentes lila”. They also had conversations with their teachers and principals.
At Niño Jesús School, they interviewed a group of children, who described what the training meetings, in which they participated, are like and what it means to them to be agentes lila. After the interviews, these children acted as hosts and showed them the different school units. It was very significant for our visitors to know how children see their own school.
At Inmaculada Concepción de María School , in the context of the call to celebrate Flag Day, a group of girls shared with their peers part of a workshop on prevention against all forms of violence towards girls and women.
At Don Héctor Roque Duarte School, they observed and shared with agentes lila children that were training their peers on the importance of identifying cases of violence and knowing the different instances of protection of children at a local level.
At the end of the tour around the schools, our visitors promised to share all the testimonies gathered, transformed into wonderful stories.
