We visited Los Pipitos again in March of this year and were really impressed by all the improvements and updates to the school. We have two teachers now and both work very hard each and every day (Thank you, Liliam and Sebastien!)
On our visit, we brought with us a few people from another organization. They, too, were really amazed by Los Pipitos. One of them, a speech therapist from Alberta, decided she wanted to become involved. On her return home to Canada, she arranged for an IPad to be filled with apps to help some of the students work on their speaking skills. Thanks to a rather roundabout route involving several Canadians, the IPad is now at Los Pipitos and is being used daily!
We will also be hiring an assistant teacher soon! Stay tuned for more updates from Los Pipitos...
