2013 aims to bring more elderly into the plan

2012 was a difficult year for the old people's plan although we did manage to provide many elderly people with food parcels and medicinal plants. In 2013, funds-permitting, we plan to return to our regular food-drops and increase the number of elderly relatives of our children who will benefit from this program. As our numbers swell in our schools, so to the numbers of elderly relatives and it is vital that, in these times of food insecurity and crop failure, that basic foodstuffs are available for the whole family, not just the adults, though the children and the grandchildren aswell.

Every three to four months, we plan to invest $2000 in the food parcels, which include rice, beans, sugar, oil, medicinal plants, soups, pastas, salt and other staple requirements. With each elderly adult receiving this parcel, it should be sufficient to see them through until the next installment. With the elderly receiving their food, there is more of the little there is in the household to go to the children, thus filling two sets of stomachs each day.

Happy Holidays to all our donors, past, present and future and thankyou in advance, especially in this time of our Christmas Appeal, which is raising funds for food for the kids in 2013

cheers

2013 brings three-pronged education

Nicaragua
Nicaragua

2012 has been an excellent year in Nicaragua, 2013 is going to be even better, thanks to all our donors past, present and future! This year, looking at the final grades, all the children successfully moved on to the next grade (bar a couple), with maths being strong. Our secondary school children, who we give scholarships to, equally did very well.

In 2013, with our donor-funded six paid local teachers, we will be concentrating on the three vital groups of education: pre-school, where will be investing in new didatic materials to stimulate learning; primary school and secondary school reinforcement, where we will be investing in a library and stocking it with many resource books for their learning, whilst also having our local teachers help them reinforce their education.

Very exciting times and thanks to our current Christmas Appeal, we hopefully will be able to feed all our children aswell. Thanks to past, present and future donors, Happy Holidays to you all and together we can bring first-class education to our communities in Nicaragua

Thank you 2012, let 2013 commence!!

2012 has been a good year for our projects in Perú, despite the numerous teacher strikes and disruptions to the children's education, though we got there in the end, with final exams currently being finished off.

2013 brings us to ever-more expansion in our education goals for the communities, with a lot of work to be put into secondary education, with Plan Immersion (whereby we introduce opportunities and examples of future employment by bringing in business owners to talk with the children about opportunities in Arequipa, something they would never have had without further education).

We will also continue to reinforce primary education, especially giving the vital one-to-one attention for a few kids, and also continue employing local teachers, the only way to make a project sustainable in the long-run. Also, thanks to our ongoing Christmas Appeal, we will hopefully be able to feed all our kids daily.

Thanks to your ever-present donations, past, present and future and Happy Holidays to you all

cheers
