There have been three areas: the training for the Welfare Work, working from the introduction of quality to strategic planning. Secondly, the training for R.E.D.E.S., organizing the 2nd Training meeting for International Volunteering trainers as well as the training for the net members. Finally, the RENATE meeting, a training week for 25 people from 11 different countries. The impact of these activities has increased, although is probably that the celebration from RENATE next year will be in another country. Online training Online training has achieved its goal of launching three courses this year, focusing this year on private funding recruitment with the participation of Fundación de Solidaridad Amaranta in France and Italy as well as the launch of the identification of minors and international volunteering courses. The courses’ scope has tripled, opening them to the general public as a sustainability strategy, promoting communications in order to create solid social and a recognisable presence in its identity. Next year we will give way to webinars after being tested this last year quarter and working for getting the required tools and knowledges to consolidate this proposal.
AWARENESS AND SCHOOL CENTRES “Black Tears” On the 25th November 2015 is celebrated the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Promotion of Art presented in Tabacalera , “Black Tears”, a project is led by the artist Alejandra Corral (Kuska), as a result of a research of the use of art as an instrument of social transformation, in this case, the fight against trafficking in women. Fundación de Solidaridad Amaranta has participated in both contributing with tens of pieces to the sum of 1962 tiles which conform the tapestry, and supporting its dissemination. The Black Tears completed tapestry was first presented in June 2004, in María Zambrano Campus from University of Valladolid, in Segovia. Since then, is has been exposed in several locations, in London accompanied by the Project Raha from Sisters od Adoration, in Evora coinciding with the celebration of the 20 years of the Shelter House, as well as in national offices. Black Tears is one of the social and artistic project that has involved a large number of women around the world. It is also one of the first examples of Community Art in our country. Awareness Activities at School Centres This approach to School Centres is part of the strategy of creating a social base. The team aims to be a bridge between the projects abroad from Sisters of Adoration and the socioprofessional communities. The latter have a long tradition of collaborating with social projects abroad. Fundación de Solidaridad Amaranta seek to systematize this collaboration on two directions. First, the centres must receive updated information from the projects in order to create a sensation of continuity to this commitment. On the other hand, on the projects on the ground, information about the source of contributions is transmitted to the communities, working co-responsibility and mutual solidarity.
