Conociendo nuestra Seccional // Getting to know our district

El viernes y el sábado pasado, viajamos a dos municipios para conocer otros jóvenes Cruz Rojistas. El viernes, pasamos el día con los voluntarios de Zipaquirá, llevando a cabo un taller sobre compromiso institucional y captación de nuevos voluntarios - al final hicimos captación, esperamos haber inspirado a alguien a formarse como voluntario en la Cruz Roja.

 

El sábado, viajamos a Fusagasuga, una ciudad en el norte de Cundinamarca, para tener un taller de comunicación y liderazgo. ¡Muchas gracias por la hospitalidad y por enseñarnos sobre su GAM ! (Grupo de Apoyo Municipal).

Un abrazo, Ana y Sara


Last weekend, we spent travelling to two other municipalities in our Department, Cundinamarca, to get to know Red Cross youth volunteers who work in so called “Municipal support groups” (Grupos de Apoyo Municiapal).

Friday, we went to Zipaquirá where we had a workshop on motivation amongst volunteers and recruitment - we focused on capacity building throughout the workshop, and at the end of the day, the volunteers felt secure enough to go out in public to disseminate on Red Cross and to recruit potential volunteers. It makes all our work worthwhile, when we see a volunteer going from being a bit timid, to animatedly talking to complete strangers about their passion.

 

On Saturday, we went to Fusagasuga, a city located in the Northern part of Cundinamarca, to do a workshop on communication and leadership. We thank both municipalities for their hospitality and for teaching us about their work.
