Love, Solidarity and creativity have opened for CW

Serious student doing assignments at home

Love, incredible solidarity and creativity have opened new ways to educate rural girls in Peru.

Chicuchas Wasi girls and the entire CW team are just amazing, they refuse to let any obstacle interfere with the mission of CW. The 126 students, alumnae girls, the teachers and staff, and Administrator Ruth and assistant admin. Gloria are well and safely hunkered down. Girls do their assignments at home as shown in these photos. The staff has come together via Zoom and telephone to create and establish a good plan. All immediately knew that food would be the urgent priority that the girls and their families face now due to their extreme poverty, no work and no social services. 

Last month I reported that the school year opened on March 2 for 2020 and lasted just one week. Due to CoVid-19, the government of Peru placed the country in lock-down with a stay-at-home order to protect the people. Everyone has been staying home and honoring the cerfew after 6 pm - that is enforced. Ruth and I talk almost daily and she believes that the stay-at-home order will continue another 2 weeks. Women are allowed to go to the market 2 times a week and this gave the team the opening to attack the most urgent need. Food first.

Please visit our CW Facebook page for more stories and some great videos too big to put in this news update.           https://www.facebook.com/chicuchaswasi/

While teachers taught classes and received the images of girl's school work, staff living close to the school got busy. They took advantage of the allowed market day for parents to meet outside the market and find the CW school bus. Simeon (bus driver, resident security of the school, handyman too) and Saida and Margarita (the cooks who live near the school) prepared 36 packages of basic food from the school pantry plus the CW harvest to give to the families with most urgent need. The bus was loaded up with these 36 packages and Simeon then drove the bus to meet them outside the market and to avoid the police. The supplies were received with much emotion and gratitude from the families. Just telling this story fills me with emotion and gratitude that we are able to save lives from severe malnutrition and make a difference for our CW families.

Leading up to the loading of the bus with food supplies, much more went on behind the scenes. Our amazing team understands that everyone is needed to get through this crisis. Their solidarity and passion is demonstrated as they volunteer to do almost anything that will help. Every inch of land around the school was planted at the end of last year with potatoes, peas and beets and was ready to harvest. Since the parents cannot come to the school to harvest this crop, Simeon (bus driver and all-round handyman) and the two cooks harvested the crop and prepared the 36 packages and loaded up the bus since they were the only ones close to the school. Now the CW pantry is empty, but Ruth plans to purchase more food basics like: canned mlk, lentils, beans and pasta for our other CW families. Also we still have more to harvest soon at the school  Just amazing!

                                         ******************

One of our 2 pregnant teachers, Jessica, just delivered a baby girl in the hospital and both are healthy and safe. CW school will continue home school for the entire 2020 school year. Our teachers have no intention of letting our girls slide backwards – CW students will continue to learn lessons at their grade level, so they will not lose the year academically. 

                  THANK YOU

for sticking with us to EDUCATE GIRLS
