Education can (and should be!) fun

Dear friends and donors:

Another year has passed and we are so fortunate to have be able to serve in the Tultitlán community, responding to the diverse needs and ideas that emerged.  With the re-opening of public schools after nearly 18 months of being closed, our tutoring and basic education services have been even more necessary to keep kids from dropping out of school.  This year, more than 70 kids attended classes at least once, with more than 40 children participating regularly. 

In the health part of our project, in the past two months alone we have worked with 35 children in individual and group therapy sessions. We have also worked with adults on parenting with a focus on improving family communication and harmony.  In the group Forming Values for Nonviolence sessions, children learned relaxation techniques with the goal of learning self-awareness and self-control.

In addition, in November we created and distributed recipe books to people in the community that are interested in learning how to incorporate healthier ingredients in their meals. 5 people worked on the community garden, planting vegetables and herbs like cilantro, zucchini, tomatoes, lavender, beets, and broccoli. 

Lastly, we want to thank the local volunteers that show their appreciation for Amextra's community center by assisting with the cleaning and maintenance of the center.  Thanks to these volunteers, in October we were able to add waterproof sealant to the ceiling of the computer lab and kitchen.
