Secondary school students take art classes

The secondary school students in San Rafael, Honduras have been busy over the last 4 weeks working on their art project. They were provided with painting materials and broadly instructed to paint either still life or scenery. However, the key was to use their imagination and creativity.

They spent about 2-3 hours a week on their art project. For students that do not have exposure to art outside of the school, they showed real promise. The results were stunning! As can be seen, the students were very proud of their work (as were we)!

The Secondary school is completely funded by donations, before we brought teachers in for the older kids they had no access to higher education, thanks so much for your support.

Literacy and numeracy help in the Orphanage

Work is going well at Angelitos Felices (the orphanage we work near to Copan Ruinas in Honduras). As well as giving fruit, we are providing sheets and activities for the children attending School to practice their studies, and when they have done that, they are free to join the little ones, colouring and playing outside (the colouring is very popular ).

The only problem now is that the kids enjoy working so much, especially the attention, help and praise they receive, that after finishing their work, instead of going to play, they want to do more!

They have a lot of energy, and it can be a challenge to try and give time and attention to all the kids, but to work with them is a real joy, and nothing can replace that feeling that these kids are now getting the chance to enjoy themselves and develop.

Communities come together for annual Football comp

This Friday on the project the two communities in which we work, Barbasco & San Rafael came together to take part in an annual inter-school football competition. Both teams couldn't wait to take part and had their football jerseys on before they were even in the truck to make their way down the campo.

In total there was 7 schools taking part, playing at the campo of the school of "Sinai". San Rafael & Barbasco played really well, and a good time was had by teachers, volunteers and students alike. Barbasco was only pipped to first place by an extremely tall group of players from the school of "La Pintada", and San Rafael coming in just behind in 3rd place.

The boys didn't mind too much though, as both enjoyed scoring in the double figures in the few matches they played. We are all looking forward to next years competition with the 2 schools battling it out for top spot once again.

New community Barbasco gets a makeover!

During a week-long school holiday, GVI volunteers and a bunch of brilliantly keen kids, gave the school at Barbasco a facelift. The walls in both classrooms were cleaned and painted a fresh shade of blue, while a smaller room - previously being used for storage - was converted into a brand new classroom for the 1st Grade students.

With bright yellow walls, complete with the alphabet and numbers, it´s the perfect space for the younger kids to learn... and have fun! With help from all the kids and Sandra - teacher and director at Barbasco - the main classroom was also decorated, and we all agree it looks GREAT!
