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!

These past couple of months, the kids and young adults, have been concentrating on arts and crafts, with some excellent results. The regular exams are showing great progress for the children and young adults from five communities in the one school. Many thanks.

Greetings. Our school in Honduras is coming to the end of the second year and the children's results have been superb. To start fundraising for next year, I will be embarking on a Charity Challenge this weekend, 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. cheers
