Please join us to learn about the work of the Onzole River Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing educational empowerment to rural Afro-Ecuadorian communities along the Onzole River in the remote Northwestern Ecuadorian rainforest. Dan Levin and Carolina Napp-Avelli, University of Maryland faculty members in the Center for
Mathematics Education and Center for Science and Technology in Education, have worked in one of these communities. Along with the director of the Project, Carlos Vieira, they will present videos, pictures, and descriptions of the positive efforts being made by community members and visiting educators to bring knowledge and resources to help empower and equip young people who will lead this community into the future.
Refreshments will be served and although there is no cost to the event, if you like what you hear and feel inspired to do so, there will be opportunities to donate towards the ORP's work and become a partner in the Onzolestory. We look forward to sharing this time with you! Event Flyer
