With the aim of promoting discipline and teamwork, workshops were held at the Martial Arts School at the Pies Descalzos Educational Institution of Cartagena. These trainings are considered essential for the development of abilities necessary to face life and more than that, so that our students can make positive impact and change in their community.
This was an initiative of the teacher Álvaro León Coral, who dedicates his free time to the Martial Arts project. Consequently, a group of students who showed enthusiasm and commitment to the activity was formed. This group seeks to be trained to participate in external leagues and games as a way to reinforce the process.
“Being part of the school has contributed to my discipline, fitness and mental well-being, which allows me to have the opportunity to belong to a project that is not offered in schools in the area”
Yesmith Posada Álvarez, grade 9
“Being part of the school is an opportunity that the institution gives us to improve our quality of life, which allows us to strengthen values such as respect, humility and equity, in addition to opening many doors”
Oswaldo Pineda Martínez, grade 11
In Pies Descalzos we are fully convinced of continuing to support these processes, which enrich, strengthen and contribute significantly to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and, therefore, promote Quality Education to break the cycle of poverty in Colombia.
