The programs have continued under the leadership of Guatemalans.
Nora Tun Bacajol (our first teacher and now director) has moved 3 classrooms from urban to more rural communities, and has added a teacher and community as well for a total of 24 teachers leading 25 sessions a day.
Jhonathon Gomez, who I hired just before my episode is leading the implementation of the new Aula Magica program which is designed to be used in communities that do not as yet have trained teachers. Over 30 facilitators have been trained and are using the recorded curriculum this year already.
Jose Tun Bacajol is continuing to manage the nutrition program, training mothers to prepare fresh nutritional foods for the kids each day, starting school gardens, and distributing the fortified dry foods to supplement their menu. He is not only impacting the preschool classroom, but the food available nearby the schools, and the family homes.
Atached pictures from the report this past month from Oscar at Chuisac Verituc. Oscar has been teaching for 4 years. He has 12 kids in the morning and afternoon using a public building in the community. He has shown activities in several areas: Atitistic Expresion, Mathermatics, Dexterity for learning, Communication and Language, and Physical. There are some captions in Spanish, but the pictures tell the story.
