Once again we got to celebrate the graduation of our 7th graders at the 3 schools in which we work in Ecuador. Up at Huayrapungo, Diana and Luisa, the two inaugural beneficiaries of our new High School sustainable initiative, Plan Cuy, enjoyed a quiet day of celebrations with volunteers and the children. Plan Cuy (or Guinnea Pig) involves providing families with a suitable pen and breeding Cuy which can generate food and income and ultimately keep the kids in school.
And the great news is….all of this year’s graduates will be going to High School with the support of GVI!!
At the community Larcacunga Senorita Fanny organized a big party to mark the end of term, it was great to see the community celebrating and the kids succeeding.
Thank you so much for your support!
The first three months of the year has seen huge progress with the children, especially as many teachers are missing school for new training, we are able to continue all education so the children do not miss out. The children in secondary school are still afforind their secondary educations with the proceeds from Plan Moo, the cows donated to the families. Many thanks
The Plan Moo scheme we set up last year has seen its first year of results, with most of the children from one of our communities managing to pay their own way in secondary school with the proceeds from selling milk from their cows. In other communities, utensils were handed out to the children making the step up and they are well on the way in the educational year.
Thanks for everyone's support and Happy New Year
Greetings. Our schools in Ecuador have begun the new scholastic year well, with new children now heading off to secondary school, and previous kids moving up a grade, which is a great achievment. To start fundraising for next year, I will be embarking on a Charity Challenge this weekend in Guatemala, climbing 4 volcanoes in 6 days, so please, if you can, spare a penny or two to help raise funds for such a good cause.
Our ids who we have put through secondary school have finished the educational year with a fine set of results. The Plan Moo scheme, which we are testing in one community, whereby the family receives a cow and the milk and cheese proceeds go towards their children¿'t education, has proven successful, and we plan to role this out into other communities over the next year, purchasing more cows.
