Since the beginnig of the year we haven´t stopped working. We´ve done lots of things in our preschool and it is looking great!!!
Thanks to your donations and the collaboration of some friends, families and the team efforts we can proudly say that our little ones are having a great school year at Yachay Wasi. They are more comfortable now and we were able to improve the educational work by reducing the gaps we had.
Now we have windows and doors in our classrooms.
There are two little toilets and sinks for our children, to promote autonomy.
There is an office for administrative work and coordination, and a space where the older children can develop math and language arts exclusively.
With parents and friends help we made a fence for our garden and children painted it with many colors. It looks amazing and protects our plants.
We enable a classroom for motor skills (psicomotricidad), where children develop social and kinesthetic skills. This practice is very important for their personality, self steem, and for future learning.
We built a sand box in the playground where they love to play.
There is a nice kitchen, where every monday children cook their own bread. And they also make the cake themselves when there is a birthday. Besides learning about healthy food, mathematical concepts are worked trough these activities.
We are very happy and grateful for everything we have achieved so far.
We hope to do more with your help.
As we always say, we are in this together and without your support none of this would´ve been possible.
Please consider donating to Yachay Wasi so we can continue to learn with our children, giving them the opportunity to grow free, strong and happy.
Be happy and grateful everyday for what you have and who you are... as we do.
The first week of the scholar year passed and we are very pleased to anounce that it was a success!!!
All the children and their families were happy.
32 children from 2 to 6 years old attended the kindergarten with joy. On the second day they said goodbye to their mothers and stayed till the end of the day without droping a tear. They really enjoy being here, playing, singing and learning.
We had a meeting with the families and they all expressed their gratitude to the Yachay Wasi team. They are very satisfied with our work and the quality of education their children are receiving. They are very interested on working with the psychologist and on learning about good ways to breed theirn kids.
But not all are so good news. Despite all this "happiness", there are lots of things to do.
We still need to finish and improve the building. We need doors, sand for the sand box, to plaster the toilet walls, to make the roof for the toilets, to paint, to finish the floor of the sink area, and some other things...
We need your help for this to be done.
Our children will be more comfortable, secure and in better conditions to learn, play and be more independent and autonomous.
We count on you for this!!!
Thank you very much for considering helping us through a donation.
the Yachay Wasi family.
Thanks giving day is here and we feel that is the perfect moment to say THANK YOU!
We are really really grateful for all the help you have given to us, for your continuous support, for the smiles on our little children´s faces, for the love and confidence of their families, for the strength and kindness of the teachers, for not giving up despite all the problems we´ve been through this year, for the joy we feel when mothers, as Carlota, who comes from a very tough situation, and walks 30 minutes every day to bring her daughter Gabi to Yachay Wasi, tells us with tears in her eyes: "Muchas gracias mami por todo lo que hacen por nosotros. Estoy muy feliz por Gabi y quiero que ella continúe el año que viene en este jardín" ("Thank you very much for everything you are doing for us. I am very happy for Gabi and I want her to continue in this kindergarden the following year"), and gives us some freshly harvested corn from her field.
This makes that everything we're doing, that all our efforts, worthwhile.
THANKS TO YOU, for helping us build our dreams, for helping us to offer a respectful, loving and quality education to our children, and support to their families, for letting us show them that everything is possible with love and determination, for helping us to pass through this really hard year we had to face, and for giving us hope to continue.
THANKS TO OUR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES, for joining the hardest moments, for all the patience, effort and work they have done to help us with the new building. To the children for their tolerance, for being happy working below a tent for several months, for smiling despite not having things to play with, for their love and gratitude.
THANKS TO US, THE YACHAY WASI TEAM, for our strenght, for our disposal, for making things look "easier", for the love, energy and hard work we put in every little thing, for the patience and for making a great job during the year.
Thanks, thanks and thanks..... we are in this together.
Thanks to your support, things are getting better day by day.
We are very happy to inform you that the 3 classrooms and new kitchen are almost ready!
Thanks to the effort of a lot of people our 45 children are now receiving education under a roof and between four walls.
They are as happy as we are. They enjoy every minute in their new classrooms. All the classrooms are divided in corners where children can develop different abilities. There is also a big carpet where we sit in a circle to take part in the daily assembly and to finish the day listening to a story.
We still need your help to get 5 windows and 4 doors, and to finish the two bathrooms for the children.
Please Spread the word!!!!
Thank you very much!!
The Yachay Wasi Team and children
