Libélula: Tribo das Meninas
So I’ve posted on my travel blog about the work that I’m doing in Bahia, Brazil recently, but I thought that this bit of news was worth sharing here too. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been interning with an organization called Libélula, located in a small beach town called Itacaré, located on the northern coast of Brazil. Libélula has a cultural center where we work to provide a safe space for girls from an at-risk neighborhood. In this center, besides pyscho-social support, we provide art, computer, English, and Human Development (I’m the teacher!) classes. My work here has taught me so much, and has been such a fulfilling learning experience. On my travel blog I’ve talked a bit about the frustrations and challenges of working with the girls, our International Women’s Day Parade, and a bit about the reality of the girls we work with. But I haven’t yet shown off the product of my work! Voilà the website I have been slaving over the past month. Click the image to check it out!
