A couple of testimonies

After the success achieved during the summer of 2013 in our project, in which we worked in 3 different communities in the State of Puebla, we started the process of self-evaluation and re-thinking aspects of our project to improve our model with 2014 in mind. Now we have new coordination teams in our literacy campaigns ¡Alfabetiza!, whom are about to launch the calling for the present year's volunteers to be part of the group of teachers. 

Soon we will be having news about the training stage of the process. In the meantime, we would like to present to you these two testimonies we translated that were written by our formerly-illiterate students.

Title: Summer tale
Author: Anselma Paredes Aguilar
Community: San Miguel Tecuanipa

My name is Anselma Paredes Aguilar. I had a really good teacher and she studied with us daily and we did learn a lot from her and she from us. And when she didn't give us lessons we missed her, one month was too little for me. I learned to divide, substract, multiply and many stories she taught us. She was very happy here in our town of San Miguel Tecuanipa, Tochimilco, Puebla. We also studied two hours a day; it was so short because we went to our crops. Here we grow really good peaches and we shared them with our teacher Ixchel and our teacher Panchito. Our teachers liked a lot the beans we treated them to for dinner once. We also did some small models with play dough that were really pretty. That's all, thanks. 

Title: Tomorrow Tuesday
Author: Miguel Anzures Tapia
Community: San Miguel Tecuanipa

Tomorrow Tuesday I wake up really early to go work in my fields of corn and beans. I take two people that help me. We all go in a truck that, sometimes, doesn't start, hahaha. One time the teachers Ximena and Isabel came with us to pick peaches and they came back really tired.
