Hello GlobalGiving Supporters!

And greetings from all us at this sunny Monday in Guatemala.

Over the past two weeks we have signed the contract for our new kindergarten location, we have been busy putting some happy paint on the walls and are now beginning to move our donated supplies of toys, clothing, bedding and games into this new space.

We have also interviewed and hired a (Guatemalan) teacher, Lysette, and promoted one of our local staff members, Marisol, who has been with us now for over two years, to manage this location, as well as our first Kindgarten location, which has been operating since early 2011.

The 14 families right here in our own neighborhood whom we will be serving have been notified that we plan to officially open this month.

We are also making arrangements with our solar supplies to come by and install and their system prior to opening.

And, finally Marisol and Lysette are in training this week with a non-profit partner organization that specializes in Kindergarten management and operations!

We would like to thank you for your support of this project and we will be sending another update and photos when the first of the tots arrive and begin their new life of fun, play, and education.

Our annual budget is $12,500 is almost reached with only $2,475 left to fund completely.

With warmest regards,
