50% of Tonacatepequeas total population belongs to gangs. Children & youngsters are not only trying to be recruited but also face constant exposure to drug abuse and other circumstances that hreaten their health and life motivation. IBREA is working with 8 schools in San Salvador to keep kids away from violence and help them realize their potential. Their most recent project IBREA is working on is building The swimming pool for Peace. This project is not only fulfilling long time dream of the kids of this community to have a safe place to spend their free time in play, but it will help bring community together united by the common vision. The only condition IBREA has given the community is that they all work together on the organization and the construction of the pool. Everyone, the school community, their families and friends will play a role, including people from different gang groups who are in rivalry. The goal of the project is to help create a real culture of peace in the community. During the next few months, IBREA will keep monitoring the progress of this project and giving reinforcement education so that they remember why they are working on this together and provide them tools to overcome the stress, disputes and other obstacles they will find in the process. This story inspires me deeply - it is simple, tangible, pragmatic way of helping those in need. As I am driven by my personal goal of overcoming adversity and healing my diabetes through yoga, meditation and running - I decided to unite both causes. I am running my very 1st Half Marathon on July 29 in San Francisco, and I run for IBREA El Salvador project! I hope this story will inspire many of you to support my efforts. Please, give what you can to help support my cause, and to give me even more motivation to run! Every dime you donate will go to IREBA and will count for these kids in San Salvador, for their community. Thank you!
