Promoting the culture of peace: An experience in Bolivia


The video recounts an experience carried out between Fe y Alegría, which is a social organization that works in Bolivia to reduce exclusion in rural education, and the Department of Psychology of the Bolivian Catholic University (UCB). The experience focuses on the work carried out by UCB psychology students, who implement a community training program to contain acts of violence between and towards children and adolescents in the facilities of the Yachay Wasis (houses of knowledge), in the rural areas of Chuquisaca and Potosí. This video highlights the importance of using playful methodologies as an alternative to traditional means of formal education.
