PROGRESS: Has your organization seen progress toward a culture of peace and nonviolence in your domain of action and in your constituency during the first half of the Decade?

People who are participating in the project such as teachers, students and administrative people since 2001 to 2005 have shown a positive change in their state of mind in relationship to Peace Culture, especially those who have been working at this high school since 2001 besides that, the students who have finished their studies and have entered the university. All of them have felt an inner change; they have become true leaders who love Peace and take care of the environment. When people come in our High School they can feel our positive attitude. Besides that, the community knows about the work done by the young students through the newspaper.We have been making progress in Peace Culture due to the support of Life-Link that stimulates us to continue working in our project. We can feel this stimulus when we receive the answer to our report in the web page.

OBSTACLES: What are the most important obstacles that have prevented progress?

I have also coordinated a good team of teachers in the city.  They are 21 and they all come from different schools and high schools from their city. Why can I work with other teachers of different schools and a lot of students in the Life Link Program? I help them improve their communications skills, expose them to a variety of opportunities inside and outside the school (working with different divisions, going to conferences and trade shows, etc.), try to understand where they want to go and help them understand what they need to get there. We are all involved in the actions taken in the project. We haven’t had any problem with parents or other people.Money is necessary for us to transfer students and others needs but we have solved the problem with our budget. We have financed the trips or vice versa. Most of the time we have paid the money taken from our salaries but I am happy to do my best.

ACTIONS: What actions have been undertaken by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the first half of the Decade?

The high school becomes beautiful due to the saving of water, about 50%, that allows us to use the water again.  This project was carried out (initiated) by Life–Link. CONAMA financed it. We saved 50% of water. The water from the sink is accumulated in a drum connected to a motor. When it is functioning the water goes out from the drum through an underground pipe to water the gardens. It’s beautiful because we live in a desert region. Besides that, young people are taking care of the trashcans; all the classrooms have one inside it.
I have contributed with guide designs to teach them how to respect themselves, and other people who are taking care of the environment, the water, and solid recycler. The guides will be taught to the students once a month in each subject because they are adapted to all of them. Besides that, students will learn short stories. It depends on the age of the students. I want to tell you that through this Project of integration between frontiers we were able to edit a bi-national  book, that  has short  stories, a  flora  and  fauna guide from  both cities. We followed the Program designed by MINEDUC from both countries; this text is the result of many meetings among teachers from both countries, in Mr. Eduardo Peralta who is a teacher of History contributed to this field. We are both Chilean. Peruvian teachers of Tacna are using this text. It is a text for fourth elementary level, designed for nine years old children. There are two texts for Arica. Teachers will have the responsibility to use it in order to teach about Peace Culture.
