The end of the year is always a good time to think about what we have accomplished: During the last six months of 2018, more than 600 women visited our institutional venue, La Casa de Panchita. A total of 134 obtained employment in domestic service, with a fair salary and dignified working conditions. Some of them participated in workshops such as English courses, computer training, self-esteem improvement and others organized by our volunteers. Likewise, a group of 15 girls in child domestic labor took part in recreational and educational Sunday sessions, all year long. All this was possible thanks to your support! We are planning on continuing our commitment to the girls and women we serve, while always working to improve our work.
We wish you a happy new year and we hope we will keep supporting girls and women together!

News from Jugando Aprendo
By Eveli Leyva - Project Leader
At the Ludoteca we are attending children twice per week, to give them school reinforcement. They are always very enthusiastic and happy to improve their grades. We received a copy of their mid-term evaluations and all of our kids got very good grades. Seven of them are among the top students of their schools and their moms are very happy about it.
The construction of the new Ludoteca goes on. With the support of mothers, volunteers and promoters, we have carried out several tasks on Saturdays, to move forward with this beautiful project. The hardest task was bringing building materials to the new site, as area is very rugged and we are half way up the mountain. However, this has not prevented us from carrying on. We know that to succeed we have to work as a team and that this effort will always be our greatest achievement.
We have received good news from the mothers who participated in our workshops last year. Several of them have obtained positions as leaders in their communities and have supported us in the the construction of the new Ludoteca. We greatly appreciate the effort and commitment of these great women for the good of their community.
This October we will celebrate our ninth anniversary and we will organize a gathering for the family of Jugando Aprendo. We have planted a tree and a small garden to start making the new space welcoming.
Thank you for your support!

Today we would like to share with you a ten-minute tv report that "La Otra Ruta" (The Other Route) has made about our coallegue, Sofía Mauricio, which was broadcasted several times on RPP TV, one of Peru's main news agencies and a channel with national coverage.
We invite you to watch the report through the link included in this message.
The program is in Spanish, but even so it is possible to appreciate the work of Sofia at La Casa de Panchita. We would be very happy if you could dedicate a few minutes to watching the video, to learn more about our Casa... a home that remains always open thanks to your support and encouragement. Thank you!
