2012 has been a good year for our projects in Perú, despite the numerous teacher strikes and disruptions to the children's education, though we got there in the end, with final exams currently being finished off.
2013 brings us to ever-more expansion in our education goals for the communities, with a lot of work to be put into secondary education, with Plan Immersion (whereby we introduce opportunities and examples of future employment by bringing in business owners to talk with the children about opportunities in Arequipa, something they would never have had without further education).
We will also continue to reinforce primary education, especially giving the vital one-to-one attention for a few kids, and also continue employing local teachers, the only way to make a project sustainable in the long-run. Also, thanks to our ongoing Christmas Appeal, we will hopefully be able to feed all our kids daily.
Thanks to your ever-present donations, past, present and future and Happy Holidays to you all
