More than 1,800 boys participated in the “I’m Safe” talks during the summer season, both in the holiday camps and as part of the “Verano ATR” program. The meetings will continue during the 2021 school year in the different educational establishments of the Junín district. In addition, awareness-raising activities will be carried out on public roads together with the “Yellow Stars” group.
In this regard, Mario Olmedo, in charge of Social Watch, said: «Throughout the pandemic, we continued working with the Voy Seguro program, last year through Zoom and this summer we were able to do it in person, within the different neighborhoods of summer. We did it respecting all the corresponding protocols and we have reached 1800 boys. We are very happy to be able to do it and to reach all ages, with a great commitment from all the colonies, as well as from the teachers who collaborated with Romina and Georgina who are the ones who give these talks.
«The Voy Seguro program is going to continue and now we are waiting to see how the educational part will continue. We will also add some activities on public roads together with Estrellas Amarillas, who are always working with us, something to highlight, “said Olmedo
For her part, Orlanda D´Andrea, Director of Education, said: «We were working in public and private neighborhoods and in the ATR summer venues with another more municipal talk that was offered in this space. We had a very good impact because the girls in charge of Voy Seguro do it in a very playful way and the boys interact from the game. This helps us so that they can transmit it in their homes.
“We already have orders for the 2021 cycle, although we have to see the format according to how the school year is restarted. We know that there will be presence per group and there we will connect to be able to carry out the talks. Schools have the patios to do it in person and, if not, we will bet on the virtual to be able to be. But this year, the Voy Seguro talks will continue in the different educational spaces of the city, both public and private.
