Rudy Rummel wrote -Team Tejo’ CGI University Commitment to Action is to create a children’s game and supporting business model that allows disadvantaged women in the Soacha region of Colombia to acquire new technical skills and sustain a profitable livelihood. Participants will develop craft and entrepreneurship skills while manufacturing Tejo Conejo, a game for children based on popular Columbian traditions. The project has thus far involved field research and a co-creation process with the families of Altos del Pino, culminating in a series of Tejo Conejo game prototypes. We are now moving forward toward a scalable model.
