What a Great Year!

Dear GlobalGiving supporters:

The end of the year is around the corner and at La Casa de Panchita there are so many reasons to be happy: 2013 has been a great year for us.

For the girls in domestic work we were able to provide 25 Sunday workshops; and they enjoyed 12 field trips. Starting in March, our children have received tutoring on their school homework three times a week…and now we can see some of the good results of that.

The adolescents enjoyed painting their designs on T-shirts, an activity that every Sunday has had several participants, and they were excited to be in our theater dynamics workshop. 

For women in domestic work, besides training to be efficient at their jobs, we also offered English classes, a sewing activity to repair old clothes, and dance.

In addition, as their requirement, they could receive legal advice, emotional orientation with a psychologist, and/or art therapy.

As we are getting ready for the holidays, we wanted to share some of our accomplishments this year and make you part of them: only because of your support has all of this been possible. Thank you for your continued sponsorship of La Casa de Panchita, a space for girls and women in domestic work.

From Peru, we wish you happy holidays and great start to 2014! Join our holiday celebrations this December 15th and follow us on www.facebook.com/lacasadepanchita

With gratitude,

Water, Snacks, and a 4th Anniversary? OH MY!

Dear Friends,

We have had some extraordinary months and moments at Jugando Aprendo since we last wrote.  Many of the changes to the center, such as the installation of a large water tank, a sink with running water, access to potable water, healthy snacks, increased hours that the center is open, as well as capacity building in the form of training for the promotoras (mentors) are in full swing.

Jugando Aprendo recently celebrated its 4th anniversary, and a dance party complete with cake and speeches from beneficiaries proved to be a huge success.  There was not a dry eye in the house as Liz Eveli Leyva Reyes, the coordinator and a promotora in the center, promised that this year was to be the best year yet, while a local mother from the community thanked the center for it’s hard work, explaining how much her son had achieved in school due to the out of school assistance he receives at Jugando Aprendo. 

It is with a deep sense of gratitude that we write this letter, thanking you.  Our success is not separate from yours; we have accomplished this together.

Because of our collective efforts, socially deprioritized child domestic workers in a shantytown on the margins of Lima, Peru now have a real, physical place that provides stability, nutrition, hydration, socialization, and tutoring.  Soon, a psychologist will be available for both the families of the children, as well as the children themselves, providing mental healthcare to all affected by the scourge of child labor.  As promised, educational materials, such as books and games are meticulously being inventoried, as we search for the best deal.    

I hope you are able to grasp, if only slightly, what your donations have done.  The change in Jugando Aprendo is palpable, and awe-inspiring.  Thank you.

Your support is integral to daily operations in our center.  We have yet to fulfill our yearly requirement, and depend on you to ensure operations can continue.   Please continue supporting us, and consider another donation.  Thank you.

 

Highest Regards,

 

Brendan Hieber

News from La Casa de Panchita

Dear GlobalGiving supporters:

It’s winter in Lima, the coldest in thirty years, but Sundays are always cozy at La Casa de Panchita. Girls, women, volunteers and staff are warming the chilly days with their laughs and energy. One group who brought us great joy were five French scouts who volunteered with us. Manon, Valerie, Margaux, Pauline and Mathieu worked with the girls and the adults for almost a month bringing many happy moments to them.

During the week, they were at our Library “Mi Espacio para Crecer” (My Room to Grow), tutoring children who work as domestics. On Sundays they participated in our training sessions for girls, organized a cooking and handicraft class for the adults, and even played and sang a couple of songs during our anniversary celebration (we just turned 24!).

We’re so grateful to all the volunteers who work with us, and we wanted to share with you part of they do. They’re making a huge difference for the girls and women coming to La Casa de Panchita. As always, we want to express our gratitude for your continuing support. Thank you!
