Recently we had the benefit of a graduate student from the United States evaluating our existing early childhood development and nutrition program as part of her Master's thesis. Not only did she participate in sessions she also interviewed many of the mothers privately. The feedback was very positive. The only complaint was that sessions were not more frequent. In a perfect world we would, of course, like to offer such sessions on a daily basis.
All of the mothers reported positive changes in their children: they talked more, they asked more questions, interacted more with other children, showed interest in books and visiting the library. In addition, the mothers expressed their gratitude for the nutritional information and indicated that they were seeing that their children received adequate protein and vegetables.
My wish for all of our donors is that you could see the gratitude in the eyes of the mothers of these children. Many are not literate themselves and, like mothers everywhere, hope for more for their children. With your ongoing support we can continue to give these mothers hope that their children will succeed as students by getting them started as soon as possible. Gracias y saludos.
