El dinero donado por la Sra. Roig Ferré será utilizado para continuar con la linda obra que esta reconocida organización sin fines de lucro lleva día a día impactando sobre 10 comunidades necesitadas del área este de la isla.
Además, desde la ciudad de Boston, se recibió una sorpresa donación por parte de Camila Aponte Guzmán, joven puertorriqueña quien preside Boston Flow, una organización sin fines de lucro orientada a las artes. Ambas donaciones fueron entregadas a la mano de Sister Nancy, quien nos esperaba como siempre, con los brazos abiertos.
P.E.C.E.S. fosters social, economic, educational development of individuals and communities in social disadvantage. The project began in Punta Santiago, Humacao in 1985 and has expanded its services to the eastern region of Puerto Rico.
We want to inspire leaders, with special attention to youngsters, so they become champions of their own communities. Our work helps participants insert themselves into community processes and become protagonists of their own transformations.
We do this through several programs tied to our three core service areas: education (including an alternative education high school); prevention services for at-risk populations; and entrepreneurship and development training.
About Boston Flow
We are an eclectic flow arts collective dedicated to uniting the flow artists of Boston with local artists, musicians, activists, and other creatives. As artists, we believe when we work together, we are greater than the sum of our parts – giving us all the more power to make an impact in our community.
So…what are flow arts? What is “flow”?In the last few years, several scientific studies have shown that entering what’s called the “Flow State” reduces stress and increases happiness. To flow – or enter the Flow State – is to be fully immersed in an enjoyable activity, your body and mind fully engaged with the present moment. “Flow Arts” is an umbrella term for a type of dance that involves object manipulation, such as hula hoop, poi, and staff. Practicing an immersive, creative physical activity like Flow Arts is one way to enter Flow State.
