Correction: 'Love Still Drives CW - Even in times of CoVid-19'

First day of school excitement on March 2
First day of school excitement on March 2

LOVE is still the driving FORCE for us all at Chicuchas Wasi - even when Peru is drawn into the GLOBALPANDEMIC.  (I apologize for forgetting to add the images for the story- so added here)

It is the first day of school March 2, 2020 and every girl is ready to get to work in her classroom with her teacher and ready for 2020. Ruth greets the girls in front of the homemade sign that says "Today I am happy because I am home." CW teachers are lined up smiling on the terrace responding to the eyes focused on them. Giggles and excitement are bursting in the air all week and the party atmosphere little girls love is full of hugs, hugs and more hugs.

Things can change so fast and the next week everything did. The Peru Government sent an order that because of the global pandemic, CoVid-19 virus, Peru is in lock down and all schools and business must close. Anyone on the street will be placed in jail.  It is more like a Marshall law and nobody dares to complain or argue.

                                          How did Chicuchas Wasi begin?

                                         Read the entire story in the new

                                     "JUMP ON THE LOVE TRAIN" book 
                                        www.chicuchaswasi.org/book/

Normally I send the Chicuchas Wasi update early each month throughout the school year. But this news put us all in instant overwhelm. The school team jumped in to prepare the parents and the girls to know what to do and why. All were instructed in how to prevent getting sick and spreading the virus: hand washing, coughing & sneezing into elbow, standing 6 feet away from friends and others, no hugging or sharing food or school supplies. At the parent meeting Ruth taught these prevention instruction and teachers delivered the same to the girls in their classrooms.

Preparing for home schooling, each teacher prepared a notebook for each student with daily assignments for the next month. Teachers will be in touch with the girls by cell phone that girls now have (set up by the psychologist for emergencies) and will be able to talk to their teachers regarding assignment issues.

Our girls have no internet connection, laptops or iPads at home, so the notebook will provide the ability to continue to study and receive any help they might need by phone. In a developing country like Peru, the best we can do is teach how to not get sick. The community we serve are high at risk for uncontrolled spread of the CoVid and death as we have already seen in the states. This Marshall Law type of shutting down all of Peru will save a lot of lives and is a no nonsense way to get the people to comply, since the police will take them to jail if found on the street.
 
All of the CW School team, Ruth and Gloria and the girls are well. No one is sick.  Our bus driver-handyman, Simeon, is living and is security now for the school. Our CW staff depends on their CW paycheck to survive economically and CW continues to pay all permanent staff in their new role as home school teachers during this crisis.

In the few days before we closed the school the girls took the opportunity to thank their beloved EfrainValles who provided the swing set posts, some tourists to contribute to the school playground area, so the parents could finish the ground and final details of the playground equipment next to the primary school. The sign is thanking Efrain for always there to help the girls. He has been a member of Chicuchas Wasi for 33 years and the most active board member in CW Peru ever.
                                  THANK YOU Efrain & CW Parents
