Improving children's school performance

Dear donors, 

In recent months, the children taking part in our school reinforcement program have increased from 20 to 35 and the local community is very supportive of our work. Many of the girls who come to our new headquarters take care of younger children and often come accompanied by a 3 or 4-year-old cousin or nephew. The girls told us that there is no one to leave them with at home and they are responsible for them. Unfortunately, at Ludoteca we do not have the necessary means to care for such young children and as a result, the rest could not focus on their schoolwork and their projects. Therefore, we had our first meeting with the mothers of the community and we explained the situation. The meeting went very well and since then, the girls come alone and are very happy to be able to perform their tasks and play with other girls their age. Tatiana is one of these girls: she is 8 years old and is in third grade, she is the oldest of three siblings and had was really struggling in mathematics. Thanks to the school support she received at Ludoteca, Tatiana has improved a lot in this course and is now motivated to obtain the first position in her class. 

Thank you very much, dear donors, for your support! Without you we would not be able to achieve these great goals and improve the lives of the children in our community!

News from AGTR-La Casa de Panchita!

Throughout the summer, we took advantage of a very nice little terrace at our house, which has been very useful for activities with girls and women, such as self-esteem workshops and English classes. Large pots with plants and flowers surround the walls, which gives us the illusion of a garden (we do not have one) and creates a friendly space, which favors dialogue.

Thinking about our house fills me with joy. It is old and small, but it shelters and protects us, especially on Sundays, when it is filled with girls and women, who dedicate themselves to serving others, but here can laugh, learn, make friends and be free. Thanks to your support, La casa de Panchita is still open and at their service.

Best regards,

Blanca Figueroa

A new cycle of Sunday session has started!

Dear Supporters,

Last March, the new school year began in Peru and the Sunday Sessions at AGTR’s venue have also started. This year, one of the topics that will be discussed with girls in child domestic labor are the identification of sexual harassment and strategies to prevent it. This is a very important issue, since, unfortunately, violence against girls and women is a serious problem in Peru. In addition, other sessions will include strategies for the girls to achieve a better communication with their mothers, a key figure for the prevention of harassment and for reporting inappropriate behavior.

15 girls attend each Sunday, because our space is small. On the other hand, this allows us to provide personalized care to each of them. As always, this great initiative is possible thanks to your support. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Blanca Figueroa
