There is much energetic activity at Chicuchas Wasi School for Girls, as our first graduating class prepares to move on. After 8 years in the CW educational program, designed for our special girls and their reality, their faces show that CW students are confident, strong and prepared for the opportunities that await them. YOU have changed the lives of so many girls who never thought they could have this opportunity. They WILL have a better life than the women before them. YOU kept CW School open and free for our students 

    Our students THANK YOU for the gift of education
