Fraternal Encounters (Panama)

IAYSP Panama held the last Fraternal Encounter of the month entitled “Differences between the Eastern and Western mentality” by the virtual platform Zoom. As usual, this activity takes place on Saturdays of each month, and on this occasion, six young people participated. The program began with a space to share experiences of the week. They carried out a dynamic to animate the atmosphere. Later, they explained some differences between the perspectives or ways of thinking of the Eastern world and the Western world. This topic was made with an educational objective. Also, so that people could embrace and understand other cultures, such as East Asia.

The participants were very attentive and excited when they discovered that many of us share oriental characteristics and thinking. We concluded that this might be the product of the growing influence existing between different cultures that have gradually opened up to each other. It ended with some reflections and an incentive to participate in other activities at the regional level of Central America and the Caribbean.

The fraternal encounters, in addition to being an entertaining space full of teachings, are also an opportunity to strengthen friendships with young people and link them to the objectives and goals of IAYSP.
