Domestic and school violence, lack of resilience and self-esteem, and substance abuse are some of the issues faced by the communities where we operate, regardless of socio-economic status. The Weaving Networks Program seeks to develop forums for discussion and reflection to provide participants with a place to share their experience and discuss the problems and challenges that arise in their schools on a daily basis. The Program also aims to strengthen the social and affective fabric of the educational communities so as to help create a healthy and cooperative bond between the members of the community: teachers, parents, students and school administrators.
By applying a participatory and practical methodology and both individual and group dynamics, participants address the issues presented by the teachers and school administrators themselves, who evaluate the specific needs of their students and their home and social environment.
In the 2015 edition, 116 administrators, principals, teachers and administrative staff and 105 students took part in the project and then replicated the experience in their own institutions.
