Dear friends from Latin America
AIEJI’s regional office in Latin America is based in Campinas in the state of São Paulo, Brasil and managed by board member Ney Moraes.
As we would like to find out how many social educators we are in touch with in Latin America it would be great if each of you could write an email to Ney: firstname.lastname@example.org .
You just have to write your name and the town, state and country you live in.
We would like to hear from both member and non-members.
This would be very helpful in getting the regional office in Latin America further established.
This report is written by Ney Moraes, the regional officer of AIEJI LatAm:
During the last weekend (from 15 to 18) we took part at the VI Encontro Nacional de Educação Social (National Social Education Meeting) in Goiania (Goiás-Brazil).
We were invited to speak twice during the meeting: on the opening ceremony to welcome the present people; and on the theme “Regulation of the Profession”.
On the second speach we had some 20 minutes to speak.
I said AIEJI defends, including on its by-law, that the profession needs a formation or practical learning. And that teaching must include theory and practice as well as ethical issues.
I said also AIEJI recognizes the regional differences and that those differences must be considered also in a national context – specially when we have a continental nation like Brazil.
At this same theme, was Jessenia M Gonzales Gutierres, de Nicaragua, that spoke about a Service they have in Managua to take care of the care service workers (Cuidando do Cuidador). We exchanged contacts to visit Nicaragua in a national meeting of social educators.
In the the last day was created a National Social Educators and Social Education workers Association. I already invited them to associate AIEJI both as an A and C members.
In the last day we had the opportunity to invite all participants to the Luxembourg World Congress of Social Educators and we distributed 10 congress posters (each State delegation had one). I also invited all participants to associate AIEJI on the three category members, as the case might be.
