Mi Cuerpo/Min Krop
Salka Wollesen Breum
Our main teacher in Colombia and also one of the foundation’s founders is 26 year old Salka. She has a bachelor’s degree in Spanish Language and Culture from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Since 2011, she has traveled a lot in Latin America, and she quickly fell in love with Colombia. Here she has been traveling from north to south and also studied a semester at Universidad del Cauca in Popayán. Since her first visit in Colombia, it has affected her quite a lot whenever she saw young pregnant girls. Therefore, she has wanted to help prevent the problem for some time. Now the dream is becoming reality with the work she is doing with Mi Cuerpo/Min Krop.

In Mexico she has been teaching several workshops, also including topics within sexual education. She is now working with us in Popayán, Colombia.

Maria Camila Hernández Ceballos
Maria Camila is 24 years old and from Cali, Colombia. She has a bachelor’s degree in political science from the Uniersity Icesi, Cali, where she is currently doing her master in political and social sciences. She has 1 and half years experience as a teacher at the university, and during this time she has found interest in themes like gender, feminism, political representation and women’s rights. María Camila met Salka in the Ella conference that was held in Cali in December 2017. That is how she got familiar with the work Mi Cuerpo/Min Krop is doing in the city. She finds that sexual education for the teenagers in Cali is very important, and talking about sex will help take some of the taboo away and will enable the teenagers to have a responsable and informed sexuality.
