In 2020 we learned the story of Zoraya and her family, who founded the Predex foundation in the Llano Verde neighborhood. Thanks to the union of many people, we managed to remodel the first floor of their home and create a program focused on strengthening the education of the boys and girls of this community.

At the Llano Verde Bibliocasa, our students between 5 and 17 years old can learn English, get closer to technology, receive vocational and psychosocial guidance, strengthen their reading and writing skills, learn under a STEAM approach and discover the world through significant experiences.

the star project

The Star Project is a communications campaign created by our students, within the framework of the technology, information and communication (ICT) class with the trainer Nathali Anaconas. The concept of the project, which seeks to exalt the talents present in the Llano Verde community, was created by students between 13 and 16 years old from group C, as a way to redefine the territory and the narratives that exist about it, showing the voices and stories of those who “shine with their own light” in Llano Verde. In this community, talent has no borders, therefore, below we will present the work product of our students between 6 and 16 years old, from groups A, B and C, who, through the creation of a digital experience, sound and audiovisual will show small real stories of inspiring people.

the star project podcast

Students from 6 to 9 years old in Group A had the opportunity to discover the importance of speaking out. In class they learned about the power of radio and communication for social change. For this reason, they built a podcast where they told the life stories of talents from Llano Verde that inspire them. Among them, the life of a teacher, the story of a young woman who learned other languages, the skills of a mechanic... and of course, their talents!

Audiovisual narratives - Group B

The students between 10 and 12 years old in group B undertook an exciting audiovisual project that reflects their creativity and passion. With cameras and microphones, they have brought their own stories to life, capturing short narratives that speak of their talents, as well as the art and culture of the Pacific that is still present in every corner of Llano Verde. Here you can learn their stories!

Short stories

group c
Students from 13 to 16 years old in Group C, learned about the transformative impact of writing. That's why they took paper and pencil to bring stories of inspiring people to life, and weave words of resilience and improvement through short stories. Therefore, below you can immerse yourself in the experiences of a young basketball player who is passionate about teaching, a mother who transforms through cooking, a project that focuses on music, and the life story of one of our students who created a football school.

Yandel, as the team leader, asked the left-handed man to coach them because they needed a responsible adult who could help them create a world-renowned soccer school that would allow the children of Llano Verde to focus on soccer and not the games. gangs, nor in vices.
