“The relationship between the bi-co, UDS and Dalun is a very rare find. I feel like this relationship sets an example of relationships educational institutions should have with one another and other communities to rethink and challenge societal expectations. The beauty of every relationship is all parties being able to benefit from the connection which I believe this association accomplishes. The students from both the bi-co and UDS students learn ways to organize through cultural differences and community members of Dalun benefit from the programming designed by Dalun community members and other LTT members. My stay in Dalun has also showed me the impact this program has on community members whether it be Titagya students’ community centered way of learning or the shifting thought on beauty standards with internships like the Simli Radio station and Black is Beautiful, thinking together on ways to combat colorism.”

“Children have agency in their actions, convictions and friendships to create change in the worlds they live in. Children have the potential to be and to become agents of change if their caretakers and teachers allow them the freedom to question and give them the tools and support necessary.” -360 student
