Manera mi bos no tin dos
March 14 - 21, 2015
WILLEMSTAD – MANERA MI BOS NO TIN DOS is one of the main ongoing community empowerment programs of JCI United Citizens of Curaҫao conveyed in the form of a debating competition. This long-term project was only possible with the collaboration of our partners, Fundashon KPEK, Biblioteka Nashonal Kòrsou, and Toastmasters International. This initiative is purely to empower, educate, and develop our local youngsters which are without any doubt our future leaders just like Alton Paas, Daniel Corsen, and Dargello Lodowica who supported this project from the start. The commission in charge was completely blown off by the 93 registers during registration.
Before the actual competition these youngsters followed various courses and workshops. In order to guarantee an elevated debating competition the focus remained on: Speech Craft, Papiamentu, MDG’s, and Debating Skills. Observing the children performing during classes was very inspiring and we have realized that courage was the last thing these kids were lacking. From the beginning until now each contestant maintained a positive attitude by being very energetic, smart, and most importantly open to learn more. The journey of these young souls is about to reach its final stage, where they will put everything they have learned along the course in practice. The Semi-Final and Final of MANERA MI BOS NO TIN DOS will take place on the Saturdays of 14th and 21st of March 2015 in the Auditorium of Biblioteka Nashonal Kòrsou from 18:00 – 21:00. Entrance is completely FREE and you are kindly invited to be part of this experience.
