In 2011, I worked for EOTO World where I had so much fun working with Elischia as we facilitated various online forums on peace, MDG goals and human rights issues through online mediums such as Vokle. I learned so much from Elischia. She was a great mentor and passionate human rights activist. Working at EOTO World provided me a great opportunity not only to learn and gain deeper understanding about several key social and global issues, but also to organize forums on them to connect with people all over the world and promote social awareness to create a positive change. My experience with EOTO World strengthened my passions for human rights which influenced me to chose the career I have right now as a Human Rights Investigator/Compliance Monitor. I am so proud of all the advancements EOTO World has made in the past years and as it moves forward to a brighter future! Kudos and all the best!

I had a great experience on the global day of citizen action held by Julieta a member of Eoto World.
The event was really innovative in terms of raise awarenes about our responsability as citizens in our communities .
I was able to have a better comprehension of some concepts and different social and civic issues in my neighbourhood. Julieta was professional, clear in her expressions and humble to explain as many times as we needed.

Keep going!

In August i went to a meeting held in a friend┬┤s house , were i was participating of a little workshop about how to impact in a positive way with best ecological practices on our environment. Julieta was in charge of the talk, giving explanations,tips and a very interesting amount of info about how to keep a "ecofriendly" house and living as she said. I learnt that we can do A LOT , and we do not need to do so much efforts , only have the right information and know about some procedures and tips.

It was very very entertaining and educative for me as it was my 2nd time attempting to compost but i failed . Julieta explained to us how to do it in a small scale basis so we can gain confidence in get to have better comprehension of the systems and processes. So i started now my own practices and so far i am doing good ,and i did not failed as before. So Happy !

I am a social worker and i was in the global day of citizen action with Julieta from Eoto , it was very important for me to have the chance to participate in this kind of activities.
It was like a workshop ,that Julieta proposed to think deeply about our roles as citizens in civil society and how we impact over it .
The dialogues that came up after Julieta┬┤s speech were very enriching and i felt there is a lot to do , we need more people get engaged as Julieta and organizations like Eoto that stay with regular citizens and try to listen to what we think and the problems we have ! It was a very recommendable experience and a way to know more like minded people.
After the event i checked about eoto and i am impressed about the "step by step" movement they do, they move one by one and teach one by one , and i think is great, before this meeeting i thought education ,movilizations, protest or whatever needed to be massive . After this event i think we can do a difference one by one .
Thanks eoto and julieta

A friend of mine invited me to a meeting organized by Eoto through a young women that made a great job for the global day of citizen action , it was a proposal from other ngo called Civicus, so Eoto brought to us a very useful experience about how we can make a difference as citizens not only in our communities but also worldwide.

This young lady explained in a clear and easy way the concepts that were involved and also she made us thought deeply about our realities and how to impact our societes from ground.

Very happy to have had this wonderful experience, pls repeat it!

I heard about the organization through Julieta , she is volunteering with the ong and doing some activities here. I am university student and what impressed me more about the ong Eoto and Julieta was the way they approach sensitive issues as peace and human rights but in a very dynamic and practical way. And also they hear what people have to say!! Which i consider to be very important in these days that organizations only look for statistics . So in that sense i think Eoto and Julieta are doing a great job ,like artisans of peace :).

I was invited by Julieta to assist to the event she held about sustainable living and culture of peace, it was a pretty interesting activity and very practical ,we had a lot of information from Julieta about how to carry on small sustainable actions at home and in our neighbourhoods. It was very interesting and informative as well. I feel satisfied i had the chance to participate and meet other people like Julieta involved in making the world a better place.


Thanks ,

Julieta from Eoto organization, held a small event about sustainable living. She invited a small group of people to participate in a meeting in which we had the opportunity to get in contact with very useful and simple ideas on how to get sustainable in our daily lives. We learnt about composting, reducing carbono emissions, she also told us about the mdg of United Nations and how Eoto was involved in create capacity building towards a more peaceful and sustainable world.
I was surprised for good because i had the idea in my mind that going green was something difficult to do in my life , but after participating in this activity i decided to start my own composting at home and to reduce the use of plastic and i also realized that it is something achievable and this is very imprtant for me , because i can measure in by my own the differences and the impact. This is something that i was not too aware before having this activty.

Congratulations on Eoto and to Julieta for keep things simple and achievable for anyone.
