Our Raindrops Program visits the Pablo de Olavide University in Seville

As part of the awareness actions of our Raindrops Program, we recently held a talk with CIEE (Council on International Educational Exchange) students at the Pablo de Olavide University in Seville. The objective was to reflect on the impact of stereotypes and prejudices in intercultural contexts.

The facilitator of the talk was Birane, a musician and translator born in Senegal. His experiences as a migrant in Spain served as a reference to share very important information regarding the reality of coexistence and inclusion processes in Seville. In addition, he is backed by his experience in the social environment with migrant youth and his project “Back to the Roots“, a platform that promotes the collaboration of the Senegalese diaspora in the development of his country.

It was an interactive and reflective talk on topics such as racism, prejudice and stereotypes, as well as the evaluation of educational systems in intercultural contexts.

“We had a very insightful and engaging discussion. Thank you! – Alayna Brown, CIEE teacher.

CIEE is a non-profit organization that has been promoting, for several decades, the building of bridges of mutual understanding between different people, different countries and different cultures. For this reason, they offer students who participate in their activities all kinds of intercultural experiences. Their alliance with the Pablo de Olavide University in Seville allows them to learn about intercultural experiences in our city.

Our thanks to Birane, who participated as a speaker on behalf of DPC, to CIEE and to the Pablo de Olavide University for the invitation.
