LOVE spreads LIKE AIR and fills every heart at CW

Our 4 y/o newbies adjusted now to school
Our 4 y/o newbies adjusted now to school
           LOVE like air spreads at CW filling every heart, every day, rain or shine
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
                      "JUMP ON THE LOVE TRAIN" book 
                        www.chicuchaswasi.org/book/
         
                                             ****************************************
                            ** FOR OUR UK SUPPORTERS **
We have a plan to ship 40 signed books to the UK at a big shipping discount ($5.50 per book) from California. To proceed we need to have preorders paid to the CW UK friends organization (Director is Stuart) so that we won't ship too many books. 
Please contact Stuart in the UK      
** or **
Rae < chicuchas_wasi@sonic.net > 
so we can proceed. This is a fundraiser and the only way to raise funds for CW is to buy books directly from the CW nonprofit – not from a bookseller who is focused on their own profit. 
                                 THANK YOU for loyal support
                                            *************************
       I am always asked why did you create Chicuchas Wasi? 
Since I founded www.ChicuchasWasi.org  32 years ago, I have been asked again and again: What was it that made you decide to create CW? Why the Peruvian Andes? Weren’t you afraid to leave your home, solid nursing job, community and family and move there alone, with no Spanish, no friends and the 13,000 foot altitude? 

In your lifetime have you ever felt an occasional fleeting inner gentle and loving call to pay attention to something that might be important to you? Did you notice it didn't go away? Did you trust it and leap into the unknown? Or ignore it. 

When I was 41 years old I felt a strong inner call to an unknown something I did not understand but could not ignore. I finally surrendered to this heart felt call, trusted and leapt into the unknown - scared - and my life changed forever. I fell in Love with a group of ragamuffins living on the streets of Cusco.

My just published book, "Jump on the Love Train" is about that experience and how CW came to be. I have 1000 books ready to mail to you. To order go to www.chicuchaswasi.org/book/  Muchas Gracias  -Rae

                                 Please BUY the book
                        "JUMP ON THE LOVE TRAIN"
                       a fundraiser to EDUCATE GIRLS

                        WWW.chicuchaswasi.org/book/

                                      100% of the proceeds go to the school
                                         Help us to keep our school open. 
                            Thank you
The first complete new CW primary school was in 2013 and that year CW graduated 11 girls, promoting them to the public co-ed high school. There were no warm fuzzies at the new public school. The girls returned to CW emotional and asking for support and to remain part of CW family. The Alumnae Sisterhood was created to mentor, guide and support our Alumnae girls. The girls suffered a tragic loss of a promising classmate 3 years later and they grew up more determined than ever to reach their dreams. These 10 CW Alumnae girls ALL completed the 5 years of high school, graduated and their current achievements are the best news ever. 
                                       
                                    Want to know the CW IMPACT?
                                                     
                                                  ARE YOU READY?
Of these 10 CW prepared Alumnae girls: two passed the competitive University entrance exam and are attending Cusco University; four entered the Cusco Vocational College; and the remaining four are taking additional classes preparing to retake the University entrance exam. They all stayed in school (despite the constant family pressure to quit and go to work.) They are the first in their family line of women to ever do so.  We are so proud of our CW Alumnae and know you are too. This is our mission, to raise the girls up.
