December we saw our kindergarten class of 2013 graduate and our new classroom were completed with generous donations from you and lots of volunteer work!
For 2014, we are sponsoring three of our graduates to study at the local non-profit bilingual school which is a considerable amount per month, so we have plenty of fundraisers planned for this year. We will also continue our own sponsorship program with the Mal Pais Education Project Kinder, we have 10 students starting on Monday!
We are grateful for the opportunity to unite our little community through education. Through our learning center and community center we're able to support and empower local families and facilitate a brighter future for our students.
Happy New Year and thank you all for your support in our community/education project.
All the best
We hope this report finds you well! A lot of changes for the project are coming up. We are excited to build a new classroom for the kindergarten and plan on a fundraiser to help with the building costs. We also have two volunteer teachers who are pregnant, which is very exciting! So we have been busy the past couple of months interviewing international teachers and we are happy to welcome new members to the team very soon.
2013 is going to be an exciting year! This year we are focusing on raising funds to help a non-profit bilingual school in Cobano, where by we will be donating a water tank and helping them raise funds to build three much needed classrooms.
The Mal Pais pre-school program has been very successful with many donations helping to sustain the project and we also hope to sponsor future graduates to attend the bilingual school in Cobano. We already have several students from the pre-school program who have graduated and now attend the Mal Pais School, and they are doing very well.
We are looking to organize a large fundraiser mid-year to help us on our way with this focus project. The project is still not self-sustainable, so we do welcome and appreciate all the international support from everyone at GlobalGiving. We believe this project has not only helped academically but it's also united the community and gives hope for a brighter future. Thank you for all your support.
