Nolvia Morales, the principal of the Verbo School in Vera Cruz, Nicaragua, recently sent us the following note to share with all of you - our Global Giving donors - so that you would know how grateful the teachers and staff are for your financial investment in their work.  Following is the Spanish text Nolvia sent and then a loosely translated English version!

Hola Tim!! (para Tim Adams, director de VNDF)

Reciban un caluroso saludo de parte de todos los maestros y del mío, que  Dios les bendiga a través de sus múltiples actividades.

Soy una persona muy agradecida y es precisamente lo que deseo expresarles en este correo:

1-     Mil gracias por apoyarnos con los salarios de los maestros, no se como hubiera hecho cada mes sin esa ayuda  ya que este dinero complementa la parte que no percibimos dado a la situación económica que estamos pasando al tener pocos alumnos en el colegio.

2-     Mil gracias por remodelar los baños del colegio. Había pasado muchos años sin mantenimiento y ahora tiene otro aspecto con su espejo, su pintura y todos los detalles que la hace lucir diferente.

3-     Mil gracias por hacer posible la compra de los juegos de los niños. Ellos lo han disfrutado tanto… y que gozo nos da el ver sus caritas acompañado son una hermosa sonrisas.  Ellos son el motivo de que este colegio funcione y de que nos preparemos para dar lo mejor.

4-     Mil gracias por hacer posible próximamente la compra de una fotocopiadota que tanto la necesitábamos para sacarle copia a los exámenes que aplicamos a nuestros alumnos, para copias de cualquier documento de la oficina, para copias de algún libro que necesiten los alumnos o los maestros, etc.

El hacer también posible la compra de libros de consulta para los alumnos como para los maestros… WOW que bendición!! y láminas ilustradas de las diferentes materias que  tanto carecemos, es algo tan útil ya que esto les ayudara a los maestros a la hora de planificar sus clases como consultas y/o para apoyo.

Sabemos que detrás de todo esto, existen muchas personas voluntarias que están involucradas de la cual deseamos puedan saber lo agradecidos que estamos ya que han hecho posible cada uno de estos proyectos donde los únicos beneficiarios han sido nuestros alumnos (incluyendo los chichos que atendemos del orfanatorio Casa Bernabé) y  los docentes (que a pesar de su bajo salario, dan lo mejor de ellos).

DIOS LES BENDIGA GRANDEMENTE!!!!!!

Hi Tim! (Tim Adams - VNDF Executive Director)

Please receive this warm greeting from all the teachers and myself, may God bless you.  I am very grateful and we want to thank you for precisely all that you have done for us and our school:

1 - Thank you for supporting the teachers' salaries, we would not have the money we need every months to pay them without your help because the economy is difficult and we currently do not have enough students who can afford to pay the full tuition to cover the teachers' salaries.

2 - Thanks for remodeling the bathrooms at school. They had not been maintained for several years and now they are beautifully done.  The mirrors - the paint - all the details make it look so different. 

3 - Many thanks for making it possible to renovate the children's playground.  They have enjoyed it so much ... and that gives us joy to see their faces all with their beautiful smiles. They are the reason that we all work at this school give our very best for them. 

4 - Thank you for making it possible for us to buy a copy machine that we needed to make tests for our students, and make copies of office documents and books for the students and teachers.

We also heard that you are raising money to purchase books for the students and teachers ... WOW what a blessing! We are lacking various materials and your support will help the teachers plan better for their classes and support their students. 

We know that behind all of your efforts there are many volunteers who are involved.  We want them to know how grateful we are and that their gifts have greatly benefited our studetns (including the children who live at the Casa Bernabe orphanage nearby) and the teachers who continue to give their very best professionally despite the fact that they would make more money if they worked at a nearby public school. 

God bless you greatly!

- Nolvia Morales
