Students for Liberty Annual Report highlights Eslibertad
Estudiantes por la Libertad was highlighted in the 2015-2016 Annual Report for regional conferences in Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, and Paraguay. The conferences featured a great variety of topics and speakers, but all of them fulfilled their mission of exposing people to the ideas of liberty in creative and innovative ways. Many of these countries were holding their first-ever regional conference.
The report also highlighted the work done by the Ecuador team during the relief efforts of the earthquake. Their #unabotellapara initiative collected empty bottles for water and brought them to the affected zones. In the end, they managed to collect 3,000 bottles. Great job!
