Thank you so very much!  YOU raised $23,000 toward the Chicuchas Wasi School 2013 annual budget of $131,000. We had a shortfall of approx. $55,000, and thanks to you we are down to approx. $30,000 left to fully fund the school. Great success!! PLUS:

  1. CW placed #1 in number of individual donors =$2000.
  2. CW placed #2 in amount of money raised =$3000.
  3. CW won a total of $5000 in bonus money toward balance shortfall.

We could not do this without you, and we are deeply moved by your generous support.

YOU are provding education to girls who would not go to school otherwise. They will not be illiterate, uneduated, oppressed and abused like their mothers and grandmothers. You are giving them the key out of poverty and changing their lives forever. Thank you for caring, it really matters.

CW students come from impoverished and uneducated families, often with only a single mother earning at best $1 a day to feed and house 4-5 children. CW School provides bright red uniforms, hot nourishing meals, safe transportation, books and supplies and even dental care when possible for all students. We are more than a primary school. We are a special school especially programmed for these girls, from these families, living in stark poverty without hope for more.

At CW school for undervalued girls we emphasize empowerment and self-confidence. This past week CW tackled a long held belief by uneducated rural men and women: “women have not voice, nor vote.”  Rural women have been taught that they are inferior to men and destined to suffer from hunger, poverty, rape, beatings, and inability to care for their children because they are women. Women believe that they have no power to make decisions to change the gender inequality that keeps them impoverished and silenced.

To provide our students with greater understanding, CW school Director Ruth organized a CW school election to elect a school Mayor. Every class nominated a candidate, and that class helped their candidate prepare for the debate against the other 8 candidates. A moderator was chosen to keep order and monitor the time allocated for candidate to speak. The stage was set like an actual debate setting and props were loaned to CW by the Government org that oversees elections. The debate was presented to all 115 students to listen, learn and to think about so they might make a good choice for school Mayor. Secret ballots were filled out and the Mayor was chosen. Every girl student is finding her voice and how to use it, and our students will know how and why they must vote to bring equality to all indigenous women and girls of Cusco.

We are changing the lives of poor indigenous girls little by little, and YOU are making it possible.

We are ranked #1 today and could win the large $$ bonus award GG offers- won't be decided until end of challenge on April 30. To win we must keep our #1 position.

Today is Day 9 of the challenge and YOU have donated $10,560 to date, reducing our 2113 school budget shortfall to $43,040  remaining to fully fund the 2013 CW school budget of $131,000. The CW fundraising GlobalGiving campaign continues forward, now we are secured on GG, to fund our shortfall. 

Your donation matters, from $10.00 to $1,000.00 USD your dollars go directly to support the CW School. All U.S. management and administration expenses are donated by the California Board of Directors. If you already donated thank you, if you were waiting please do it now.
