The school does not teach anything that the child does not need for the achievement of his project goals. Second, ‘Technologies connected to our locality’, when a child observes his context through a digital camera, he is taking his place in the community and gains awareness of his role in the construction of a collective future. Third, ‘We narrate what we do and who we are’, so the community can discover where it wants to go in terms of future development. Finally, ‘We ‘steal’ children from war’, as this initiative intends to offer local children and youth an alternative to a life in the ranks of armed groups and drug traffickers."
