Sunday December 11th was a great day at La Casa de Panchita. We celebrated the end-of-year holidays.
Early in the morning girls and women began arriving, ready for a full day of activities and fun. We started the day with a tee-shirt painting workshop, everyone creating their own designs. Next came a session making chocolates, and another drawing and writing Christmas cards.
In the afternoon everybody got together in the main room. The little ones danced and performed a short play organized by Analí, a former child domestic worker who’s now one of our adolescent outreach promoters. Felícitas, a young domestic worker who has participated in La Casa de Panchita for several years, sang in Quechua-- a special point of pride for those of us who have this language as their mother tongue.
Finally came a powerful moment when we all held hands and made our wishes for 2012. The celebration ended with music and dance, girls and grown-ups all celebrating together.
In the holiday spirit we want to share happiness and joy with all of you Global Giving supporters. Our best wishes for next year!
Thanks for changing the lives of the girls and women in domestic work.
