This March 2022 NSE Shout-Out goes to our Teacher Scholarship Winner: Colleen Vallin, from Pioneer Ridge Middle School in Chaska, Minnesota!

🍀

“As a dedicated educator, avid traveler, and learner of languages I have experienced how intercultural exchange changes your perspective of the world. As a teacher I have worked hard to make sure all of my students have the opportunity to become active global citizens. The Pulsera Project has been a great resource to continue this mission of promoting global exchange, awareness, and service with my students… I would love to learn more about the artists and their communities, and the amazing work they are doing with the Pulsera Project so that I can share that experience with my students and my fellow educators.
This first-hand experience will allow me to become an even stronger advocate for the Pulsera Project. I would love to help create more authentic activities for my students and to share with my fellow educators through the Pulsera Project. I can already envision lessons on weaving, a digital walking tour of Antigua, interviews with community leaders, and so much more! This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will enrich my learning, my teaching practice, and my own traveler's spirit.”

Thank you, Colleen, for everything that you do for your students. We are thrilled to offer you this amazing opportunity with the Pulsera Project this summer!!

At Shining Mountain Waldorf School, our sixth graders participate in The Pulsera Project every fall in Spanish class. Managing this fair trade bracelet sale allows them to practice business math skills in a real world way, and also gives them a connection to artisans in Central America. That’s just one example of experiential education in a Waldorf middle school. Here are some more:

Scholars at Harriet Tubman Charter School got to make unique bracelets from
The Pulsera Project! The Pulsera Project buys pulseras from nearly 100 artists in Nicaragua and Guatemala to fund scholarships, secondary education, healthcare, and more.

We're so glad scholars got to take part in this great cause! 🌈
The Pulsera Project- Bracelets with Benefits!

Get your bracelets at carpool, October 18 through November 1 at Exploris. $5 cash

Over next two weeks our school will be partnering with The Pulsera Project, a fair trade nonprofit organization that seeks to empower, inspire, and educate people in Central America and the U.S.

The Pulsera Project provides sustainable, well-paying work opportunities for nearly 200 artisans in Nicaragua and Guatemala, most of whom make colorful hand-woven bracelets, or “pulseras” in Spanish. The project then creates a market for their artwork by partnering with schools across the U.S.

Pulseras will be sold for $5 here at Exploris, and the proceeds will be invested in a wide range of social impact programs in Nicaragua & Guatemala, including:

*Sustained employment for nearly 200 artists
*Legal and medical aid for those impacted by the crisis in Nicaragua
*Secondary education programs
* University scholarships for artisans and their families
*Healthcare for artisans and their families
*A housing program for artisans and their families
*Environmental initiatives
*Support for other social enterprises doing impactful work in these countries

We hope this will be a highlight of the school year as students engage with the beauty of Latin American culture while lending support to these skilled artisans and their communities!

The Pulsera Project is back! Come support the 6th gr Spanish class in their fair trade bracelet sale to benefit artisans in Central America; 100% of sales go to this inspiring non-profit. #boulder #k12 #school #middleschool #nicaragua #pulseraproject #pulsera #student #teacher #6thgrade
Students are wondering about best practice for tying the pulseras around their wrists??????
Could you explain again how the Venmo would work again during a Pulsera Sale? Thanks. I see this.

"A student purchasing three pulseras would send $15 to @pulseraproject with "Smith High School" as the memo. The student would only leave with their pulseras after the payment receipt has been seen by the sale leader. Sale leaders should keep a record of these Venmo sales so they can properly estimate the total raised from their sale between those payments and cash payments."
People on our campus this month can buy colorful, wearable art that benefits Hispanic artists, thanks to a collaboration between The Pulsera Project, F1rstgen at West Texas A&M University and WT HSA.

Mission

We're happy to let you know that last week we expanded the available time slots to speak by video chat with long-time Central American Pulsera team member Jorge Morales.

Any school that is hosting a pulsera sale is welcome to sign up -- it can be a great way to further your class or club's connection to the project.

Jorge is familiar with almost every aspect of The Pulsera Project, grew up in Nicaragua, and has traveled extensively throughout both Nicaragua & Guatemala for his work with the project. Though he now lives in Canada, he still spends much of the year in Central America working with project partners and developing new programs.

We are back in the field!

Part of our Central American team was in Guatemala recently meeting with and learning from new artisan organizations that we'll be partnering with in the coming years.

As we slowly move past the effects of COVID-19 on both the U.S. and Central American sides of The Pulsera Project, we're working hard to hire new artisans and pulsera-makers so that we can bring new bracelets to schools in the U.S. and generate more Fair Trade opportunities for workers in Central America.

It was a packed 10-day trip through communities in several of the beautiful municipalities of Guatemala, such as Palín, Chimaltenango, Santiago de Atitlán, San Lucas Tolimán, Nahualá and Quetzaltenango.

Seeing these photos fills us with hope and enthusiasm for the future, to return to work with more artisans and continue to impact artisans, families, and communities of Central America.

Our annual year-end review was just published on The Pulsera Project website -- thank you so much to everyone who joined us for another year of coloring the world!

Overall this was a pretty bumpy year for The Pulsera Project, with COVID-19 continuing to create a mess of uncertainty in schools around the U.S. and all the complications that came with that.

Looking forward we are super hopeful and enthusiastic that 2022 will be the year that things really start to pick up again, both in the U.S. and with our artisan & impact partnerships in Central America.

We've been getting a lot of questions recently about whether pulsera sales are still happening this semester -- the answer is yes!

In recent weeks our core group of artisans in Nicaragua have been meeting to learn and share advanced techniques for making our signature "Lana" style bracelets. The idea is to perfect the different designs & patterns, discuss color combination choices, and improve the fine details of this pulsera style so that in the future they can share what they have learned to others interested in making them as part of our artisan team.

In true Pulsera Project spirit, these gatherings have been super colorful and lively, with threads and bracelets everywhere, interesting stories being shared and, as always, funny jokes and friendly banter between the artisan team.

As life starts getting closer to normal, we've been hard at work in Central America finding new artisan partners to join the Pulsera Project family. Our core group of artisans in Nicaragua gathered recently to host a workshop where they specifically covered the technique for making the "flor" and "culebreada" style of pulsera.

We always love getting to bring new folks together through the exchange of art & community, and we're looking forward to much more of this in the coming year.

Our most recent professional development workshop with Pulsera artisans in Nicaragua addressed a wide range of topics related to gender. Through videos, readings, and hands-on activities, artisans reflected on the social privileges that “machismo” offers men, the limitations on women, and on gender-based violence.

Each of these workshops and meetings is very enriching for our team and artisans in Nicaragua — it facilitates an awareness at a deeper level of the problems experienced in the country to help advance an understanding of possible strategies to positively affect the development of the people, families and communities in which our project works.

Photos from The Pulsera Project's post 09/05/2021

As part of our ongoing professional development program for Pulsera artisans, our team recently hosted a workshop to reflect on the concepts of community and sustainable development.

The concept of development is usually related to infrastructure, technology, or the availability of money, but it was super interesting to hear opinions that link the development of a community more to the organization and solidarity that exists within it, to the harmony between families, and access to recreation and education for girls and boys.

Here are a few photos from this workshop in San Ramón, Matagalpa I’m northern Nicaragua.

We're excited that pulsera sales are starting to begin again at schools across the country! Sign-ups are now available for the entire 2021-2022 school year. Let us know if you have questions about setting something up with your class or club this year and we'll be happy to answer them. Looking forward to working with you guys again to keep coloring the world!

As part of our ongoing professional development series for members of the project, a few weeks ago our team facilitated a workshop on Fair Trade practices with our core group of artisans in Nicaragua.

One of the fundamental values ​​of The Pulsera Project is to embrace and promote the principles of Fair Trade, so we felt it was super important to share this experience with our artisan team. Through concrete and context-specific examples we explored the advantages of ethical & fair-trade practices in business relationships, not only in the context of the Pulsera Project, but also in terms of the world at large.

Here are some photos from this memorable and enlightening experience!

Looking for a fun & free service-learning project for your Spanish Class or Spanish Club as schools return to in-person learning this school year? Check out The Pulsera Project---a nonprofit Fair Trade partnership between U.S. Students and Central American artists!

--------------------------------------------------

Students sell handwoven "pulseras" in their schools made by nearly 200 artists in Nicaragua and Guatemala. In the process they develop their inner global citizen while learning about a completely new side of Latin American culture, about Fair Trade, and about real-world social justice issues.

.

Our free educational materials tie the whole project together in the classroom through authentic activities crafted around ACTFL standards. Activities are based around the lives of people we work with and allow students to gain a deep understanding of what life is like in Nicaragua & Guatemala.

.

In addition to sustaining jobs for artisans in Nicaragua & Guatemala, proceeds from pulsera sales are invested in a wide variety of social impact programs that benefit the artisans & communities throughout Central America!
