First volunteer gathering in Croydon

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.

International Youth Day

On the 12th August, in commemoration of International Youth Day, as celebrated by the United Nations, PODIUM opened a space for the young Miraists in the United Kingdom to come together, to share their ideas about our ideology and how to implement it so that each one of them is a motor of change in society. They also participated in play and sport activities, where they put into practice those values and principles as taught by Miraism. To conclude the activity, they made their own flag, which they will use from now on in all their activities.

Community gathering in Guildford

On the 6th August, a community gathering took place in Guildford where the community had the opportunity to know more about PODIUM’s work in England and Miraism internationally. Attendees enjoyed an afternoon of socialization and integration as well as a lunch prepared by our volunteers. Attendees with Colombian nationality were also given more details about the March 2018 Colombian elections and how they can exercise their right to vote, as well as how to join the institution that promotes our ideology in that country, the political party MIRA.

Celebrating Colombia’s Independence Day

On the 29th July, PODIUM celebrated the 207th year of Colombia’s independence, as well as the political party MIRA’s 17th  birthday, in which the Miraism ideology was born.

In this event, which around 200 people attended, guests enjoyed the countries’ traditional foods and dances, performed by the dance group Yurupari. It was also a special day for children, who were able to enjoy a bouncy castle, face painting, and activities that the volunteers had prepared for these little ones.

The grown-ups also had the opportunity to enjoy themselves, playing bingo and taking part in the raffle, as well as getting to know more about MIRA’s political work in Colombia that they can benefit from, even from abroad.
