In 2010, the program called "Puntos Focales Fractales" (Fractal Focal Points) began. This program established a network of physical and virtual centres of volunteers trained in the topics of the New Integral Education. These official points of reference for Pedagooogía 3000 are present in various countries in Latin America and in expansion in the rest of the world. There are 64 points at present.

2012 began with the constitution of a network of Certified Facilitators of Pedagooogía 3000, which is a team of people trained to give workshops, talks and official training, and are furthermore prepared to open Academies in various countries. To date 72 Facilitators from 10 different countries graduated. Meanwhile hundreds of schools use Pedagooogía 3000 formally and informally, spontaneously and self-taught.

There is current collaboration with two universities in Mexico (Toluca, Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México, and UABC, Universidad Autónoma de Baja California), with the Universidad Mayor de Santiago de Chile and with the UPAL University in Bolivia, with whom we do research and publications.
In 2013 Asociación 3000 was created in Bolivia, in order to give Pedagooogia 3000 a legal structure, which allows us to effectively complement the emAne Foundation, which is in charge of the World Network.
Throughout the world, various foundations or associations have been officially created to represent Pedagooogia 3000: 2014 in Argentina, Chile, and Spain; 2016, in Venezuela; 2017, in Mexico.

This will help, in a large-scale and in the long run, to achieve the objective of the Alliance of Civilizations and the Millennium Development Goals…”
During this tour, she was invited to give a speech at the Arab League in Cairo on the topic of Education, a Seed for Peace.
In 2015 she launched the Blue Declaration of the children of today and tomorrow for the change in global Education. The ex-president José “Pepe” Mujica, among other personalities, signed this declaration.

After that Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia and Venezuela incorporated as well. To date (2017), 14 countries are interested in participating in said Network. The goal is for each country in the world to have at least one 7 Petal School for reference.
Beginning of 2016, along with Nelly Chavarria, Noemi Paymal designed, developed and implemented a very innovative Program: ‘Post Traumatic Tools 3000’ (PTT3000). This consists of a compilation of educational and therapeutic techniques especially chosen to be easily shared with children, playful and entertaining, easy to replicate, easy to perform and without any costly materials. With an international team of 4 people, Noemi Paymal went to deliver this program in two refugee camps: in Turkey, in Sanliurfa, Akçakale and Suruç, with the International Blue Crescent, then in Lebanon, both in Beirut, in the Ouzai Centre and in the Bekaa Camp, with Beyond Association. In Lebanon, they certified 13 teachers with the tools and worked with 95 Syrian refugee children, ages 7 to 14, with immediate results for 82% of them. The whole program is based on anti-stress techniques and post-traumatic healing. Teachers, parents and children living in difficult situation, can benefit from it.
In November 2016, Noemi Paymal was invited to speak at the GLOBAL CHANGE LEADERS ALLIANCE, in Beijing, on the topic of Education.
