First One More Option Charity Concert - August 2016

On 10 August, One More Option organised its first charity concert at the Café Arte Guápulo in Quito, in collaboration with the group Huitzi y los Longos Alucinógenos. The aim of the event was to fundraise for the association’s projects, and in particular the IT training for our fourteen foundations which will take place at the end of August.

Thank you to all who attended the event, to all the team at Café Arte Guápulo where we were so ably hosted, to Diego our volunteer for his help, and to José and David from Huitzi y los Longos Alucinógenos for their excellent music!

 

 

One More Option’s AGM 7 July 2016 - July 2016

The AGM took place at the Maison des Associations in Paris’ 15th Arrondissement. All 7 board members were present, along with 3 guests and 1 Ecuadorian participant. Astrid Blomart, the President, opened the meeting by presenting the organisation to the guests. Following this, there was a workshop organised by Clémentine, a board member, on non-violent communication. The subject was of particular interest to the attendees, who exchanged opinions and reflected on how the training could impact on their daily environment. Edith Guiochon then spoke to present the year’s accounts and finally, after a break for pizzas, the attendees discussed strategic axes for the development of the association, with the input of Paola, a representative of the Ecuadorian community in Paris, with which One More Option would like to consolidate its relationship.
