We are Celebrating these girls
We are Celebrating these girls

                   LOVE is the driving force for us all at Chicuchas Wasi.

Please join us in N. California on March 22, at our annual Peruvian Buffet fundraiser complete with live Andean Music to celebrate our 34 years of success.

CW School for Girls begins every March with 4 year old Quechua-speaking girls who never heard the word school before. They are paired with an upper grade CW girl to lovingly ease their passage into this new sometimes scary and unfamiliar CW world. The 6th grade girls who will graduate in December and move on to high school and later the University that awaits them are new role models for our wide-eyed little ones. Many possibilities will begin to creep into their awareness and open to them when they hear the older girls talk about their dreams for the future.
                         How did all of this begin? 

              Read the entire story in the new book
             "JUMP ON THE LOVE TRAIN" 
        100% of the proceeds go to the school to EDUCATE GIRLS

CW grade school and alumnae girls send love to you
CW grade school and alumnae girls send love to you

Chicuchas Wasi school girls, alumnae girls, teachers and staff, Ruth and Gloria on the admin team, all wish you a HAPPY CHRISTMAS.

Thank YOU for remembering CW this Holiday season

The Chicuchas Wasi School month of December is full of joyful activity: holiday celebrations, graduation of our 6th grade class - moving next to a public co-ed high school, CW Alumnae Girls join the CW holiday spirit, the CW bakery is turning out Xmas cookies for everyone. Of course we have final exams as well. CW school year ends tomorrow. Final image of happy girls.
           
      **Please DONATE this holiday season to educate Girls.**
Chicuchas Wasi School for Girls had a jaw-dropping surprise visit from a Cusco tour company bearing gifts, one for every girl. Dr. Alejandro (CW school psychologist) was behind the surprise and helped organize it with the company. Everyone was taken by surprise when they drove into the school with a Feliz Navidad y HO HO HO 

The CW annual fundraising campaign began on Giving Tuesday - Dec. 3. and continues to the year-end - and will give you a tax benefit.THANK YOU FOR DONATING to educate GIRLS.

 
CW 2019 School year ends tomorrow for summer. The new year will start next March 2020 for schools in Peru. Party activities take the stage now along with the holiday cookie making by the Bakery school girls and our returning alumnae girls, seen with Ruth, for the party. Our Alumnae girls at the University and in Vocational College are taking their finals the last few days of this school year so will come late. The 6th grade Honor Guard passes the torch to the 5th grade for 2020 seen in photo.

Our 2020 campaign to raise the $143,000. annual budget for the CW 2020 school year has raised almost $45,000 of the 2020 budget. But, there is still time for that tax benefit, so please do remember the CW girls between now and new year's eve.

Globally Charity Giving Day
Globally Charity Giving Day

GIVING TUESDAY in 2 days kicks off CW School budget campaign for 2020.

Every year charities around the world focus on the Holiday Giving Season to fund their next years budget. Our CW annual fundraising campaign begins on Giving Tuesday - Dec. 3. and continues to the year end - and will give you a tax benefit. GlobalGiving.org is matching all donations on Dec 3. Please donate to grow your donation: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/educate-110-poor-girls-in-cusco-for-economic-survival/  

When I reflect on the many blessings that Chicuchas Wasi has received for the last 33 years it amazes me. We have always been a grass-roots organization (hand to mouth) and have still somehow been able to grow and create such a successful Chicuchas Wasi School for Girls...because of you and other generous supporters like you. Thank YOU!

CW School year ends mid Dec and a new year starts in March 2020 in Peru.  Ruth is seen here with some of her beloved students ready for graduation, only a few days away and they will be off to a public co-ed high school. All alumnae girls remain part of the CW family and participate in programs created for CW alumnae girls who still need our support. We now have CW girls at the University and in Vocational College. The first girls in their family to go to school. Success!!

The baking class is teaching all CW girls a MARKETABLE skill so they can raise a little money when needed for high school fees. A younger student classroom and parents harvest the potatoes they planted for the CW meal program. We have grown, Thank you!

Our 2020 campaign to raise the $143,000. annual budget for the CW 2020 school year starts in earnest in 2 days. Please see the PIE below and how we spend your donations.

All Souls Day celebration by students
All Souls Day celebration by students

All of Cusco and the CW School join the local custom and celebrate All Souls Day

This is the time of year when Peruvian local customs dominate.In Cusco on All Souls Day, you will see Cusqueñans offering masses and candle-lit vigils in cemeteries around the graves of their deceased loved ones; this is when families visit the cemetery with the favorite food and beverage for the deceased and sit and share stories around their grave.

The entire CW school celebrated All Saints Day and All Souls Day on November 1st and 2nd to commemorate the saints and the dead like all of Peru does each year.

The 'baby bread' (PanWawa) with its sugar painted baby face is baked or bought and shared with all. Recent visitors during this celebration came to our school and gifted PanWawa Bread to every girl and a large PanWawa for teachers and staff to share.               THANK YOU!
Today the girls also have discovered the American Halloween.  Here are some photos to enjoy. 

NOTICE: Our annual Peruvian Buffet at the Sazon Peruvian Restaurant normally kicks off our holiday fundraiser for the 2020 CW school budget. Sadly it had to be cancelled. The Northern California wild fires all around us forced every resident and business to focus on their families and employee safety. We will reschedule in 2020 and it will be fun and tasty I promise. 

                        Please DONATE to EDUCATE GIRLS this holiday season.
