What to expect
At Cerrito Forum, you will share ideas, challenges, and solutions for poverty elimination with participants from different sectors. By being part of this collaborative network, you can construct and design strategies that will help you lead the change in your community.
Carried out in Cerrito Agricultural High School, you will learn about the self-sufficient model that promotes the “learn by doing, selling, and earning” methodology. Developed to address poverty at an early age, the school provides students with the necessary tools to create their own agricultural business or compete successfully in the job market. If you are interested in eliminating poverty through education, you will be able to examine how this self-sufficient school trains its students to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
You will also experience the Poverty Stoplight’s Cerrito Initiative. This project seeks to eliminate multidimensional poverty in a poor, primarily indigenous community over a three-year period. The Cerrito Initiative works by activating the entrepreneurial potential of 1,000 families and empowering them to end their own poverty. By visiting the community, you will be able to learn more about the history, culture and language of the QOM people, and understand how the Cerrito Initiative is impacting their lives.
