Hello dear friends,

As you well know, CONEXION is a project that Fundacion Calicanto created in order to follow up with our beneficiaries and provide additional training and tools for all members of the Calicanto community.

As I mentioned in the last report, we would be starting our first CONEXION program with the very first “Parent’s Club” in this community. The parent’s club will provide workshops for parents focusing on parental responsibility, self-esteem, a values-based education, and discipline, among other topics needed by this community. The training workshops for parents will be held monthly and our goal is to improve parent-child relationships and make parents aware of their children’s needs.

On May 8, we will also begin our usual English and Computer clubs, which target the CAPTA women who have graduated from our courses. They will receive as usual, basic English courses focused on hospitality terminology and basic computer use courses. 

I would also like to mention that Mother's day is around the corner, and you can help us raise more funds for this project or other Fundacion Calicanto projects (CAPTA, ENLACES or RESTAURA) by purchasing a tribute card for your mother and celebrating this joyous day with Fundacion Calicanto. 

Do something different this year, and show your mother just how much you love her with a tribute card.
