I will also post a video of our current facilities in La Paz soon.
*NOTE* - unfortunately the video I put together using Imovie is not compatible, so I had to upload to simple version, without clips from our meetings, without music, titles, etc., but you get the point. Could you also please let me know if you are ale to watch the vidoe? Thanks! ;-)
I talked in a previous entry, about the dire situation people have to deal with in the neighborhoods that Futbol con Corazon is currently working in, and wants to work in. We have recently started to engage with a new community, en el barrio la Chinita, and I made a quick video of the soccer field and our meeting with community leaders, and local school teachers. Last week we hosted a visitor from a beer company in Bogota, called Bavaria, which also has a brewery here in Barranquilla, who is the leader of its social programs. After meeting with her, touring our current facilities, and meeting the La Chinita community, they have committed funds to our project, so we are going ahead and will hopefully have everything running by November 1st. The whole community is very excited, enthusiastic, and committed to helping us complete the project as soon as possible. So, please check out the video.
