HELP US TO BUILD A DIFFERENT FUTURE
Meet our 2 Delegations from 2011 The Sladek Family, Dallas, Texas July 3-10
This July, the Sladek Family (Bill, Mary, Billy, Brian, and Maddie) did their summer vacation doing service in El Salvador! The Sladeks learned about the historical context of the country, visiting the sacred sites of Romero´s tomb and massacre site with Mercedes Monge. They stayed in the community of Shaltipa, an urban community constantly at-risk to landslides, building a house for a family who had lost their mud hut in the most recent tremor (3.5 on the Richter scale- no major damage except for very poor families with the most marginal housing situation). Billy and Brian got to experience risk first hand, when in an intense rainstorm we had to move them from their home stay family to spend the night at community leader Nina Anita´s home. The Sladeks spent a night in Joya Grande also, launching the 2nd Children´s Emergency Committee in La Marmonera, along with NYU intern Fred Sanchez (SCU ´07), getting his Masters´ in International Education. Thanks to the Sladek´s donation of $2,500, and Fred´s fundraising of $1,800, CEIBA was able to launch the program. More info on page 11.
St. Thomas Aquinas Church Youth, Indianapolis, Indiana July 29-August 6
This service trip with just as transformative for the Salvadoran youth group that hosted it as the youth that came from the USA. CEIBA let the youth groups from El Sauce and Joya Grande plan the delegation and accompany the entire process, such that each activity included an element of cultural exchange with bilingual reflections. Together, Salvadorans and North American saw Romero´s tomb for the first time, heard Mercedes´ reflect on the assassination of Ita Ford and Maura Clarke, and shared the difficulties of being young in their respective countries. They painted welcome signs for the community of El Sauce, and challenged each other in a gringo vs guanaco (slang for Salvadoran) soccer game, which the guanacos proudly won. Together, they filled tires with dirt to protect a home in Joya Grande from falling into a sinkhole, and compete in a dance-off by a bonfire by Lake Ilopango, courtesy of the Joya Grande youth group. It was a challenging and blessed experience for all, filled with a teary eyed goodbye. St. Thomas has stayed in touch with the youth, raising $600 to finish filling in the sinkhole, and another $600 to help build a computer center in El Sauce.
Continuing Work with Past Partners
April 26 2011, Dia de la Tierra with JUXVIDA. This activity, funded by IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) was organized by Juxvida (Juventud por la Vida, or Youth for Life), a network of young environmental collectives of which CEIBA is a member. Due to CEIBA´s experience working in communities, JUXVIDA chose Santiago Texacuangos as the site for this year´s Earth Day. JUXVIDA mobilized over 30 volunteers to set up 5 environmental education ¨corners¨ for kindergarteners, including air, water, earth, fire, and human. CEIBA took the ¨human¨ corner, creatively explaining deforestation and climate change to 5year olds, who ¨constructed¨ a tree with their hands. See www.juxvida.net.
June 6th, 2011, Comparsa against the OAS with PSJ
This year, the Organization of American States (OAS), kind of like the UN for the Western Hemisphere, met in San Salvador to discuss ¨Democratic Security in the Americas,¨ a topic which often blames youth for the violence problem, and as usual, does not invite youth to participate to propose solutions. Dutch funded Central American NGO PSJ (Programa de Seguridad Juvenil, Youth Security Program) decided to convene 400 youth from 30 organizations in El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala to promote youth Construyendo el Futuro desde el Presente/Constructing the Future from the Present, in a comparsa, or conga style parade, ending in a rally with speeches promoting alternatives to violence prevention that include art, theatre, and urban dance. CEIBA sent 20 youth from Santiago Texacuangos who carried coffins to represent the death of youth by gang violence, narcotrafficking, and migration. 2 youth were interviewed on Salvadoran news channel 21! See www.programadeseguridadjuvenil.blospot.com
14th May 2011, Paintbrush for Diplomacy with Anmutsipical
CEIBA collaborates with Casa Verde, an environmental education program for children, in Santo Tomas, the region next to Santiago Texacuangos. CEIBA donates art supplies to the program, and sends volunteers to give workshops to children in this violent, marginalized neighborhood. This year, Beth gave a yoga session, and a geography workshop, thanks to a Paintbrush for Diplomacy packet Zena Andreani sent, which included paper, art supplies, and paintings with photos done by 21 different children around the world. After Beth taught about how children live in the different countries represented in our packet (India, Thailand, Argentina, Mexico, etc), children painted their view of Salvadoran culture to send back to the NGO to distribute to other children. Intern Fred Sanchez also gave a workshop on gender norms, for kids to question stereotypes of women and men in Salvadoran culture. Find Anmutsipical on Facebook!
August 2011, Research with The Institute for Community Recovery and Development (ICRD)
The Institute for Community Recovery and Development is a not-for-profit organization committed to utilizing cutting edge research to support the construction or reconstruction of communities after a disaster. Run by Ryan Alaniz out of California Polytechnic State University, ICRD strives to help create livable and sustainable communities while also promoting disaster education through workshops, conferences, and publications. CEIBA first partnered with ICRD to bring 15 Salvadoran to Honduras in May 2010 to learn from reconstruction best practices after Hurricane Mitch (1998). Ryan came to El Salvador this August with research assistant Mag Caines to consult communities on the possibilities of setting up a cellphone/ GPS communications systems for disaster early warning and recovery. Read more about this project, Emerging Technologies and Disaster Response: Using Crowdsourcing to Connect Survivors, on page 6. See: http://communityrecoveryinstitute.org/default.aspx
Oct-Nov 2011, El Sauce Youth Get Trained with CIPJES
CEIBA belongs to a youth network, CIPJES (Intersectorial Coordination for Youth of El Salvador), who this year put on training workshops for youth groups across the country. CEIBA sent Jorge and Linda, representatives of the El Sauce youth group, to get trainings in non violent conflict resolution, sexual education , communications, fundraising, and networking. After the Oct. 2011 flooding disaster, CIPJES, funded by PSJ, trained youth in trauma therapy to execute psycho-social intervention in their own communities. CEIBA sent Mirna and Henry from the El Sauce youth group, who have been running an 8 week trauma therapy program in their community with children affected by the storm. See www.cipjes.net
Embarking on New Work with New Alliances
CEIBA co-founder Jonathan Velasquez, who also happens to be a published Salvadoran poet, has started an editorial project, Pirata Cartonera, which published books made from recycled materials, using cardboard as the cover. The first books, a bilingual edition called Trains/ Trenes, with help of Depauw students led by professor Joe Heithaus, were presented in 4 volumes around the USA this November. Pirata Editores plans to start cardboard publishing workshops with schools in Santiago Texacuangos with CEIBA this Spring 2012. See piratacartonera.blogspot.com
The Futbol Project
Ryan Alaniz, (Fulbright with Beth, ´09), also has started a non-profit dedicated to encouraging youth groups around the world to undertake service projects in exchange for receiving soccer equipment. The youth group in El Sauce, JUBDIS, made a proposal to Ryan for soccer equipment in exchange for finishing a service project in Joya Grande started by the St. Thomas Aquinas mission trip. Youth from the two communities joined together to finish filling tires into a sinkhole that formed under community member Ivette´s home. El Sauce youth raised $600 for the event, and spent the night in the community building in Joya Grande, where CEIBA set up a lock in that included dancing, playing cards, and learning about the new obligatory military service the government is proposing for at-risk-youth who live in places like Joya Grande. The day after service, there was a softballsoccer tournament, El Sauce versus Joya Grande, with the new jerseys donated by The Futbol Project. See:
HablaCentro.com is a local HablaCentro mobile-driven network of regional citizen information websites in Latin America where contributions can be anonymous. Contributors, especially young people, from each country share and discuss information in various languages, including local indigenous languages. People use whatever means is available to them – computers, email and cellphones – to contribute and access the websites. A team of mostly volunteers share information and tools to participate and own the websites within each country. The core of the network is to provide a space for anyone to share their views or news reporting, and to train community groups and citizens about how to tell any story in such a way so that it has impact, relevance, timeliness, can be verified, and has geographic significance. On average, HablaCentro serves 20,000-30,000 visits per month across all the 6 hubs located in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, and Venezuela. HablaCentro was formed as this growing network of news and information hubs with a legal entity in the United States. Co-founder Kara Andrade is now an Ashoka fellow strengthening this network of community news and information websites by working locally with the teams that run them and providing training and technical support. CEIBA is partnering with HablaCentro to bring a citizen journalism project started in Guatemala, Vozz, to El Salvador. See page XXX for project info. See: www.hablocentro.com
Temasili Communication at a Distance:
Temasili means long distance communication in Nauhautl, the Salvadoran indigenous language.Emerging Technologies and Disaster Response: Using Crowdsourcing to Connect Survivors 2010 had the second highest number of disasters since 1880, and low human development countries had a seven times higher mortality rate than highly developed countries (Red Cross 2010). Due to inadequate response capabilities, lives that may have been saved post- disaster are often lost. Evidence from recent disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan have illustrated that cell phones become a critical venue for communication ( See http:// www.ushahidi.com/). The ubiquity of cell phones offers organizations an opportunity to implement short message service, (SMS), global positioning service (GPS), and crowd sourcing, which enables people, whether protesters in Libya or earthquake survivors in Chile, to text message (SMS) or tweet information to a technological platform that can then map the location and information of that person in a post-disaster setting (United Nations Foundation 2011). It is at this cross-section of disaster emergency relief and available short message service (SMS) technology that Temasili emerges. We define Temasili as an internet-based platform that can be used by a municipal level government structures, community leaders and residents to receive and send information via text messages. With Temasili, survivors could text a message (e.g. food, clinic, shelter, or volunteer) and receive instantaneous survival information, mapping and matching needs and abilities increasing the organization and efficiency of the relief effort as well as enabling people to come together for mutual support. We will create a feasibility and assessment pilot project in which we design, implement, and study how this technology can be utilized to gain immediate life-saving information for disaster survivors from different scales. We want to connect the use and ubiquity of cell phones, the organizational capacity of new technological platforms, and the strength of local level participation. We have 3 goals: (1)Build a new open source text messaging platform (Temasili) that is easy to use, replicable in other areas, and useful for institutions. (2) Increase the capacity of communities, local and central government to jointly prepare for and mitigate disasters affects using Temasili. (3) Evaluate and adjust the Temasili platform to address technological and social barriers associated with the use of this technology based on demographics (gender, age, education, and wealth). We are testing existing systems in 1-3 communties such as Ushahidi and Frontline SMS before building our own Temasili Platform, while applying for more grants to expand the project to the entire municipality of Santiago Texacuangos. Budget= $2500 (pilot), 100,000 Euro (full scale) ; Financing= Ron Anderson Technology and Social Cohesion Fellowship, University of Minnesota, sent grant to Munich Re Foundation contest for 100,000 Euro Partners= CEIBA, The Institute for Community Recovery and Development, HablaCentro, Comisión Municipal de Proteccion Civil, Santiago Texacuangos Project Dates: August 2011 (prelim research done), implementation pending funding in 2012-2014.
VOZZ El Salvador
Increasingly, youth in the country are in crisis – unemployment is at an all time high, hundreds migrate to the U.S. daily in search of work or fleeing violence, and gangs and drug trafficking disproportionately affect youth – the murder rate among young Salvadorans is 92 per 100,000 people. Thirty percent of youth in El Salvador 2009 last election exercised their right to vote. The factors that account for low youth voter turnout are misinformation and lack of voter education, as well as youth sentiment that political parties and leaders fail to represent their concerns or to provide them with opportunities to participate. Many youth voters are also not interested in voting because of the perceived lack of importance of the activity of voting. The mayoral elections to be held in March 2012 are an opportunity for young people to get involved at the most local level of political participation and to hold their future leaders accountable for the concerns and rights of young people. The mayoral election season is a pivotal moment for participation, and it is one sphere in which every Salvadoran is faced with the task of finding solutions for the challenges facing their country. This project will be launched in El Salvador as a second pilot test to coincide with the 2012 municipal elections. ( the first project was completed for Guatemala´s Presidential Election in September 2011) There will b e t h r e e c o m p o n e n t s t o V o z z E l S a l v a d o r :
TRAINING OF TRAINERS We will focus on creating a training of trainers “bootcamp” program which will convene two youth from each of 20 municipalities and provide scholarships for them to attend trainings that focus on the fundamentals of reporting, the electoral process in El Salvador and the use of multimedia tools for reporting safely and accurately. A PUBLIC FORUM. A public forum will be held in Santiago Texacuangos where youth from youthserving organizations will publicly interview local candidates for mayorships on issues concerning young voters, where CEIBA has worked to develop youth organizations in communities and to create partnerships with the local municipal government to help implement new laws to protect and empower youth. SOFTWARE PACKAGE AND CURRICULUM. An out-of-the-box easy to install open-source software package ready for online launching. This electronic “Journalism and Political Participation Do-It-Yourself Election Guide” will be in both Spanish and English and available for nonprofits groups to use as a civic engagement tool. Beneficiaries: 200 Salvadoran young adults ages 1824 who live in 20 municipalities considered to be areas of social exclusion. 40 youth will be trained as the core group of citizen reporters to cover the 2012 Mayoral Elections, and 160 youth will be invited to participate in the Youth Forum in Santiago Texacuangos.
Partners: HablaCentro See page 5. See http:// en.vozz.com.gt/ Project Dates: Feb-March 2012 Funding needed: $13,905. We are applying for grants, big and small. Please donate today to CEIBA´s website or direct us to a grant for which we can apply. We will also be fundraising on kickstarter.com and spot.us.
Jovenes Unidxs Buscando Desarrollo Integral El Sauce –JUBDIS- Youth United in Search of Integrated Development, El Sauce.
MISSION To be ready to help communities in moments of disaster or risk, prevent all kinds of violence, facilitate educational priorities, and to stimulate participation and integration with other youth groups in El Salvador and Internationally. VISION To be a collective that makes available didactic tools, transmits knowledge to people about community development and the environment, raises consciousness to create alternative forms of income and food production, and foments gender equality and reducing all types of discrimination. JUBDIS grew substantially this year. The group began to write, fundraise, and execute their own projects, including filling in the ¨carcava,¨ or sinkhole together with the youth group of Joya Grande. They repainted street signs and made a welcome sign for the community with the St. Thomas delegation. They began soccer and softball tournaments with new donated jerseys, pitching in to buy food and drink for the visiting teams. Several of them went to workshops to learn about sexual and reproductive rights, nonviolent communication, and trauma therapy. The group supported the running of the hurricane shelter in their community during the October 2011 emergencies, and one member, Tito, pulled a family out of their house just before it collapsed, saving their lives. After the storm, Henry and Mirna started working with ICCO/PSJ to get trained by German experts in art therapy, and execute the project in their own community. It has been amazing to see leadership rise out of the quietest of the group, and for kids to gain the confidence to express their dreams. On our retreat in Joya Grande, several mentioned their dreams-large and small- of becoming mechanics, of providing for their families, of escaping El Salvador and going to the USA, and of becoming software engineers. This is violence prevention at its most basic: giving kids a space to dream, grow, enjoy being young, value serving others and have fun while doing it. While the government sends more military into the street and contemplates obligatory military serve to solve violence, CEIBA funds soccer tournaments, service projects, swimming in the lake, and trips to Romero´s tomb. CEIBA creates a space for the youth to fill and define, connecting the dots to make projects and events a reality.
Youth Run Computer Center, El Sauce
JUBDIS has decided this year to focus on fundraising to build an annex to the community building/ hurricane shelter CEIBA built with US Army and Civil Affairs back in July 2010. They want to build a computer center which they can run and be of service to the community. The group debated starting a scholarship project, but decided that would only benefit one or 2 members, and a computer center would benefit all. They have 3 main goals for the center (in their words): Strengthen JUBDIS- The center will be self sustaining, as profits gained from charging small fees for computer usage, internet, printing, and copies will be reinvested in the center to pay monthly internet and maintain the system. Any leftover profits will belong to the youth group for future projects. This center will also be the office for the youth group, and they can create a webpage to post projects and look for funding. Serve the Community-JUBDIS estimates that this center will serve 5 surrounding communities (about 2,000 people) that have no access to computers or internet. People can walk to the center, instead of paying the 25 cents to take the bus to nearby towns of Olocuilta and Santiago Texacuangos. The center will make copies, allow youth to download music and access social networks like facebook, Skype will family back in the USA, and use email. Many youth have to do homework on the computer, and sometimes it is dangerous to go to a nearby town after school because you don´t come home until after dark. This will help increase the safety and education for of local youth. Build a training center- JUBDIS envisions weekend classes taking place at the center, to teach youth how to run basic office programs like excel and word, and open and check email. CEIBA did a workshop to help kids open their facebook and email accounts, and was surprised to find that only 2 of 25 kids had an email account, and only a few actually knew how to turn on a computer. CEIBA can offer training classes for free, or JUBDIS can hire trainer and charge a small fee to participants. BUDGET

JUBDIS hopes to complete the center this year, and is doing their own fundraising in the community. February 4th, the group is organizing a mini ¨lightening¨ football tournament with 12 mini teams of 5 persons each. The group will charge $5 per team, and sell French fries to make additional profit. The winning team will receive uniforms donated by NGO The Futbol Project.
Solidarity for Local and Sustainable Nutrition
In an ongoing effort to support local and sustainable organic agriculture to sell to the Santa Clara University Study Abroad program La Casa de la Solidaridad, CEIBA will install this January an irrigation system in the community of Santa Maria de la Esperanza. The project comes at an important time, as farmers here lost nearly all crops in the October 2011 floods. This project will give water access to 10 families to continue planting during the dry season, which runs November-May, to be able to continue to feed themselves and sell excess food stuffs to the Casa Program. The drip irrigation system, designed by volunteer agricultural engineering student Jose Maria Gonzalez, function with gravity alone, preventing the extra cost of buy gas for pumps. The system bring water for a river upstream, where the altitude, volume, and velocity of water were calculated, so that there is enough pressure to bring the water from the river to the field. Farmers have already begun planting tomatoes, and the system will be installed in the coming weeks (midJanuary, 2012). Quentin Orem, as the point person for the Casa program, will organize supply and demand charts to help farmers decide how much to plant and when. Funding: $2,000 raised for disaster relief will be invested in this system Partners: Casa de la Solidaridad Lázaro, 49 Lázaro is married and has three children. He works as a farmer and his only income is from selling his produce whenever he can. He grows corn, guisquil, cucumbers, green beans, and cabbage. He says that one of the major advantages to growing organic is that the crops are free of chemicals, preventing contamination of local water sources. In addition to his agricultural practices, Lazaro also tries to protect the environment by using the least amount of electricity possible.
Second Children´s Disaster Committee, La Mamonera, Joya Grande, July-September 2011
This year, CEIBA executed the 2nd Emergency Disaster Committee in Joya Grande, as always, run by volunteers. This committee was better funded, and has the expertise of two interns from NYU, Cindy Pineda and Fred Sanchez, who helped fundraise for the program, creatively help shape curriculum, and professionalize the process. The first challenge of the program was finding a space; while Don Marcelino was happy to lend us an old chicken coop where AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) met prior to Hurricane Ida (2009), it was half filled with mud and he hadn’t touched it since the storm. Cindy, Fred and Norma spent an entire day cleaning and preparing a space, and CEIBA had to purchase a blue tarp for a makeshift floor and clipboards for the kids to work on. Another challenge of this project was the overwhelming male majority. We had to work extra hard to change activities every 20 minutes so the boys wouldn´t get distracted and start hitting each other. This group of boys already showed signs of attraction to the growing gang phenomenon in Joya Grande, with Miguel throwing up gang signs during photos. One of the most exciting additions to the methodology was increasing children´s participation, as the children from the 1st committee in El Borborllon planned the project launch and disaster drill. The project launch features educational corners to display the work of the 1st committee and give a preview of what was to come to the 2nd, including a makeshift x-ray machine, life-size skeletons, and a hospital. The children got to be the actors in the disaster, from running around as a lost child, to being buried, to having a broken bone, to running the makeshift ¨shelter.¨ This reinforced the trainings for the 1st group, letting them teach what they learned to the 2nd. The project evaluation will take place this month, to test what kids retained from the program and their ability to confront floods, earthquakes, fires, volcanic eruptions, and landslides. Beneficiaries: 19 Children ages 5-13, 12 boys and 7 girls living in La Marmonera, Joya Grande, the 2nd most at risk area in the community. This area suffered massive damage from landslides during Hurricane Ida. Parents noted that their children are often anxious when it rains, cannot sleep or constantly cry at night. Psycho social diagnostics run during the program revealed persistent trauma for many of the children, including drawings of dead bodies in the rivers, feeling of fear and sadness, and tears during evacuation to the shelter. Many of these children lived in shelters for 1-3 months after Ida, returning to their homes (if they still existed) filled with mud. In addition to the 11 trainings, children received an emergency kit that included first aid, a raincoat fit to their size, flashlight, a rope, and whistle to use the early warning communication system the group developed. Project Investment: $4196 Financing from Sladek Family ($2,500), Fred Sanchez ($1,200), Cindy Pineda ($300), Grace Nixon ($100), and CEIBA general donations.
The Great Flood of October 2011
55 inches of rain deluged El Salvador October 11-20, causing over $902 million in damages, 35 deaths, and 55,000 people to be evacuated. The damage accounts for a loss of 4.25% GDP, and includes the loss of nearly the entire bean and corn harvest along with thousands of homes and businesses (Cepal 2011). While the Salvadoran Minister of the Environment blames climate change for causing the worst flooding in 40 years, the disaster once again shows El Salvador´s extreme vulnerability to flooding as the same communities (Bajo Lempa, marginal San Salvador, and other river basins) are affected year after year. Santiago Texacuangos did not suffer any deaths, but lost several houses and sheltered over 600 people during the crisis, spread out in 6 shelter locations. We helped plan and play watchdog for corruption at shelters, in our role as part of the Municipal Commission for Civil Protection. We aided in food, water, toothbrushes, toothpaste, clothing, maxipads, diapers, soap, floss, and coordinated with various organizations such as Anmutsipical, SSPAS, CIPJES, Generacion Ochentas, Caritas, and others. Our largest contribution was the immaterial; the puppet shows, the movie showings, painting classes, and the use of hundreds of crayons to start a process of psychosocial intervention with at least 350 children (and maybe more). We gave motivational speeches in the community run shelter of El Sauce, taught community members how to fill out shelter statistics forms, and much more. We mobilized more than 10 volunteers to support the 10 day effort; a big thanks to Maggie Mattaini, Juancho Paises, Beth Lunik, Maggie Sears, and Danielle Mackey who trudged through the storm and crowded shelters with CEIBA. A great moment for CEIBA was to see the community of El Sauce run the ¨5 star shelter¨ we built with them and trained them to run last year. This dry and organized shelter was the only was in the region with all meals on time, cooked by the women staying in the shelter, and a playspace where kids could run around and color. When the electricity went out, CEIBA pitched in with the community to purchase candles so we could eat a ¨romantic¨ spaghetti dinner with our hands (no utensils left!)
USA tours/ Fundraising 2011
This year, CEIBA raised a total of $11,505, not counting the additional $11,350 in delegation fees covering delegation costs and a few small service projects, for a total of $22,855 in revenue this year. This is about half our budget from 2010 (which was over $40,000), and we managed to accomplish so much due to being 100% volunteer run. Nearly 2k of this fundraising was done in the USA, when Beth traveled to cities across the country in May and with Jonathan in November 2011 (San Jose, CA; Santa Cruz, CA; Indianapolis, IN; Greencastle, IN; New York NY) giving talks, selling crafts, paintings, coffee, and t-shirts, presenting her research on community resilience, and his bilingual poetry books. In addition to fundraising for CEIBA, we were able to give back to artisans like Artesanos de Suchitoto and Café Tex, the coffee cooperative in Santiago Texacuangos. Thanks to Depauw University and Santa Clara University for paying for airfare to make these events possible, and all of those who set up events including Meghan Mooney, Ricky Alexander, Fred Sanchez, Connie Tellman, Leslie Gray, Debra Rivvard, Christie McNabb, J.L Kato, Ann Thomas, David DeCosse, Joe Heithaus, and Kevin McKelvey.
