Thank you, again, for your generosity in supporting Maya Childcare, Inc. We hope that you enjoy reading about how your contribution helps these amazing children!
The children and families have been busy in the past few months. Please see all of the beautiful pictures from a recent family celebration!
One of the children that we met when Rachael, Zoe and I visited this past year was Erika, a two year old girl. She's daughter of Antonia, a single mother with 3 children, who works selling second-hand clothes. She lives with her two older brothers in a rented house in the outskirts of the city. When Erika entered this year to the Acorn Childcare, in the first days she stayed at the nursery and had a difficult time adjusting - as most children do when they enter a new environemnt. Within a few days, she was playing with new friends, getting involved in activities with other children and with the teachers. Erika loves to learn and enjoys water color painting using a brush, drawing and cutting paper. Erika's mother is grateful because now she can go out and devote herself to her business without being worried about the Erika's health and nutrition. At first Erika did not eat what was served in the dining room, but now she is enjoying every meal time. Erika, during her time attending Acorn Childcare Center, has gained weight and height and her mother is happy that she is growing stronger. She has become an integral part of the group and loves participating with her friends and teachers.
Check out the beautiful pictures below. Thank you, again, for your continued support.
With gratitude, Barrie, Rachael and Zoe
