Hello, I am writing to thank you for supporting the Yachay Wasi Project, and to tell you about the good work you have funded in the past three months.
In the past three months we´ve done lots of things. We could finally finish our stairs and balcony for the second floor, and we made a slide and a little house for the children. They are happy playing there every morning. We also improved our green area, we are growing vegetables and planting some medicinal plants in our Tierra de Niños, so that the children can learn to take care of the earth and families learn to eat healthy.
Our local teachers received professional training from an expert in early education and psycomotor activity, and received some good material to keep on learning. We´ll have another training soon.
Our psychologist Ana organized two "Escuela de Padres" where we talked about "First Aids for Children" and "How to put limits to our children", as part of a work of autoesteem for the parents. They showed very interested on this topics, and we'll continue working with parents across the year.
45 children attend the day care center every day. They have learned a lot of things since they arrived. Through play, they learn mathematical and language concepts and other languages such as English and Quechua. The littlest ones love to explore and play with water, sand and different materials. Children also attend to various workshops such as computing, art, body-expression, gardening, music, which helps them develop their creativity. They´ve created wonderful things.
The most important is that all the children have learned to share, to play toghether, to help others, to listen and respect others and nature. They are connecting with nature, taking care of it and loving it. Now we have the feeling of a big family.
Thanks for your support! We still need your help to keep on growing and improving this happy place.
