Thanks to you CW girls did not quit school-

By Diana Rae Lewis | Founder and President

Celebration for all students at public park
Celebration for all students at public park

What cries out to be said first, is how grateful we are to have had YOU, our supporters, stand with us, our 126 CW girls, Peru staff, administration and Calif support team for the last 2 years. We could never have achieved all we have the last 2 years in a global pandemic without the love and support from you. We pray the covid nightmare is over for every one, everywhere, but we realize it is not.
                                             THANK YOU ALL 

Celebrating with students the end of the 2021 school year in lock down was a challenge, since no gathering was allowed. Somehow Ruth managed to get approval to use the park (image you see here) where all of our students, parents, teachers and leaders could gather masked and distanced to celebrate the closure of the CW Peruvian School year 2021. 

First we celebrate our 12 graduates who have been promoted to public high school very well prepared and taking with them all they learned during 8 years of Chicuchas Wasi Education. Many of our grads demonstrate their leadership skills already. Our large library has created avid readers, the love of reading stories to their siblings and parents for fun. CW girls are creative problem solvers and team players with classmates and teachers, and have placed high in the ministry of education testing every year. The many major wins have developed the self confidence and self esteem seen in CW girls.

Every graduate becomes a member of the CW Alumnae Sisterhood club that provides ongoing mentoring, special meetings and the mutual support of the growing CW Alumnae membership each year. This class had the special treat of their own classmate violinist playing Feliz Navidad for all present and the cheering could be heard for blocks. 

CW primary grade school students were all given their earned diploma promoting them to the next grade level and special awards for some unique achievements. CW School has been approved to reopen in March 2022 for returning CW students. The availability of the vaccine for 5 years and up has made return to physical school possible for all Peru. Parents must show they too have been vaccinated to ensure students, staff and parents are protected. Our enthusiastic parents have already begun to prepare the soil around the school to plant the vegetables for the school meal program. Everyone is reved up to return to our beloved school for the 2022 school year in March. Uniforms, books and school utilities are lining up and the classrooms are cleaned and ready to go. Excitement is in the air after 2 whole years away and unable to even visit as a group.

HOT NEWSYesterday, Teacher Jessica delivered her third child and bringing added joy to the entire team ready to put covid behind us.

*Three student families were forced to return back to the family farm in the mountains and we hope they return soon.

*The fundraiser tuition based Maria School has been ready to open for 2 years. Finally we have been given the green light to begin registering new students.

*We look forward to the return of foreign visitors to Cusco and CW school, and the economic lift that will bring to a country dependent on tourism.  The year 2022 will be the beginning of recovery for everyone in Peru.

*The photos you see are of the 12 graduates being honored, the one violinist playing for all present, and encouraged to be active in the Alumnae club that will help guide their futures. Grads were given diplomas and all students were given a Christmas gift and hot chocolate and panitone to share with family.

A few snapshots: CW girls eager to return to classrooms; Cafeteria at the school. CW School is our beautiful sun burst color school created for poor Indigenous Girls (tuition free), and the new (tuition based) Maria school that will one day fund both schools. We are ready to return to our school and to finally enroll new students into our (fundraiser) Maria school to ensure longevity of CW for generations to come.

                         We have survived and even thrived!

                                           Thank you

Your support has made all the difference during the pandemic since 2020

CW's future when 'Maria Tuition School' classes are filled, will be self-supporting. CoVid upset our plans to open the Maria school in 2020, but we are grateful that our CW large extended family is well. We plan to begin enrolling new students in March 2022 when the school year begins again.
NOTE: Cusco IS vaccinating now. Children are expected to return to school for the next school year that begins March 2022. We are all super excited. Thank you all for hanging in there with us. We have a little way to go yet but the impact of our work is self evident in the success of our girls...some at the university today.
