After three years of running successfuly... This year unfortunately we weren´t able to start normally.
Since january our local teacher Maribel, has been attending a teacher training. There she learned much about Waldorf pedagogy, its principles, how to work with children, to respect the rhythms and processes of each child, the importance of accompanying children of early age, and many other things that has been pursuing in the daily work with her Group of children at the Yachay Wasi Early Education Center.
Another year came to an end, and we didn't want to let it go without thanking you for your support, your efforts, your nice words, good energy, collaboration, for having us on mind, for that and for much more...Thank you! You make possible that this project continues to grow.
2013 In Yachay Wasi was filled with games, songs, laughter, walks, visits, learning, nature, friendship, love, containment, theatre, painting, dancing and joy.
We want to have all this and more in 2014.
We will open another space for 1 and 2 year olds due to high demand of the families of Ollantaytambo; We will continue organizing parents schools; offering psychological support to families, especially to mothers, victims of domestic violence; and we want to start offering children's therapies for so many children who need it.
To achieve this we still need your support.
It may be in several ways: donating grants through global giving; as a volunteer; hosting a fundraising campaign; as a “messenger” bringing donations if you travel to Peru; or simply support us with your love, good energy and cute comments, that give us strength to go forward!
We wish you a 2014 full of light, peace, love and joy! Lead out your inner child from time to time, to see life from the eyes of a child and you will discover how wonderful it is!
The first half of the school year is over and many things have happened in our Early Education Centre. Thanks to your help, much is being accomplished. The project is progressing, having a profound impact not only on its 45 little students, but also on their families.
We wish you A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013.
I am very pleased to report that, thanks to your generosity, we had a successful year. A year full of laughs, play, learning, joy, gratitude and love. A year in which we consolidated as an Early Education Center, we got close to families and the community in general. A year in which our children participated in many and varied activities of emotional, intellectual, and physical development in an environment of constant learning and fun.
Many mothers began to work, collaborating with the family economy, and many parents were also encouraged to consult our psychologist and began a treatment with her. They ensure that the work of Yachay Wasi has been of great help in their homes.
We are very happy with the results obtained in 2012 and we wish that 2013 is even better.
By donating to this project you have helped many of Ollantaytambo children to receive good quality early-education and care, and welfare for their families.
On behalf of our staff and all the children and families benefiting from your support, thank you and have a GREAT 2013!!!
