Kids in the Andes
In our projects in Ecuador in 2012, both primary and secondary education have been a huge success, especially with Plan Moo, whereby we buy a cow for a family, and the proceeds pay for most of the costs incurred with secondary education. It has been a huge success, and funds-permitting, we plan to purchase a small herd over the coming months to satiate the need for further students moving to secondary school and also to help pay for our current local teachers we employ, thanks to donations.
We also hope to be able to feed all our children a hot meal each day, coupled with a piece of fruit, thanks to our on-going Christmas Appeal. The strides the children have made in their educational process this year have been long ones, and we strive to lengthen them even further in 2013; by employing more local teachers to cut-down the class to teacher ratio is a burden we must overcome.
Thanks to all our past, present and future donors, together, as a team, we can provide unequalled education for these communities over the coming months and years. Happy Holidays to you all.
