Last week was a busy week…
IBREA took a trip down to El Salvador for a Closing of the Year Conference!
At this conference, there were multiple testimonies from the teachers. They were all able to express how helpful the program is for both the teaching staff as well as the students. The students have also proven to be motivated and moved by the program that they are going out in their community, or even in their families, to teach them the things that they have learned.
This is powerful! IBREA is reaching and moving more people!
IBREA’s conference in El Salvador saw the participation of over 300 teachers from the 14 regions of the country, who received a certification after receiving our training for 3 months. The Minister of Education participated and handed out the certificates. He emphasized the importance of the program to help teachers in their emotional regulation, stress management and teaching strategies. This is the 6th year the program has been implemented in the country, reaching over 2,000 beneficiaries.

Also, IBREA was able to present the results from the previous years. We included our data and scientific findings following their physical health (sugar level, cholesterol, blood pressure, and weight) as well as their mental health (stress level, motivation, and clarity). All of the results from the participants showed a positive outcome.
At the end, IBREA stated the plan for 2017. We agreed with the Minister to reach 300 more schools, and all of the schools in El Salvador by the year 2020! That is 6,033 schools! Wow! We have a big plan ahead of us, but we are so excited to get started.
