On Saturday 6th January 2018, the Consulate of Colombia in London held their final special registration day for Colombian IDs at Elephant & Castle; with the objective of encouraging and facilitating the community the opportunity to exercise their right to vote during the Congressional elections, which will take place in March
2018. See photos here of all the registration days that our Miraist volunteers have attended and accompanied the Consulate, taking people to register their IDs.
In addition, our Miraist volunteers had the opportunity to walk around the area and provide people with more information about the registration event, as well as the Miraist candidates, Catalina Bahamón and Ana Paola Agudelo from the Political Party MIRA, who have been put forward for seats in the Senate and House of Representatives.
A reminder to those who have not registered their ID yet, please remember that registration closes on Thursday 11th January 2018.
On Saturday 23rd of December, PODIUM hosted an event for our young Miraists in Camberwell, London (click here to see photos of the event). The aim of this event was to create a safe, comfortable and artistic space for our young people, where they could enrich their culinary and intellectual knowledge by learning about the acclaimed art of Mukimono, and refresh their knowledge about PODIUM and the Miraism ideology.
On the 20th August, the first volunteer integration took place in Croydon, London, where volunteers, supporters and leaders in the area shared an afternoon together to enjoy various activities, a delicious lunch and hear the latest on the initiatives being led by the Representative for Colombians Abroad Ana Paola Agudelo and the other leaders of the political party MIRA in Colombia.
In addition, the occasion commemorated the political party MIRA’s 17 years of service, remembering its beginnings, objectives reached and projects completed.
Finally, the objective of this gathering was to consolidate coexistence with respect by activating PODIUM’s Croydon team and the activities they will be taking on to serve the community.
