Yamileth Cáceres (Honduras 2012 Fellow) represented GOJoven at the Central American Youth Camp, “Making Alliances in Diversity,” implemented by Puntos de Encuentro, in Estelí, Nicaragua from January 20 to 31, 2013. The main objective of the camp was to create a space in which youth and adults of diverse identities and social movements of Nicaragua and Central America could create alliances oriented toward questioning and intervening against all forms of discrimination, mistreatment, abuse, and social exclusion. At the same time, the challenge for participants was to form relationships based on equality of rights, dialogue, respect, and solidarity. Yamileth said that attending the camp was a very good experience: “My plan is to change my lifestyle, to be more conscious of the social inequalities that we are part of, and carry this message to others so they can also unite with the cause toward a more equal society…Above all, I consider that the key to success is to never stop learning about all of the people around us.” Well said, Yami!
