Six young people from Quebec are currently completing an introduction to international solidarity internship in Ecuador as part of the Québec sans frontières (Quebec without borders, or QSF) program. They are supporting a Development and Peace partner, the Asociación Latinoamericana de Educación y Comunicación Popular (Latin American popular education and communication association, or ALER).
As part of their project, the interns also support various member organizations of ALER established in Quito. ALER’s mission is to foster the emergence of educational radio communication and to work with other social actors for the democratization of communications, sustainable human development, and the building of societies marked by justice, equity, and democracy.
The group is sharing their experiences during their stay. Here Yasmine tells us about her experience at the Casa de la Cultura (culture house).
