Dear GlobalGiving supporters:
It’s winter in Lima, the coldest in thirty years, but Sundays are always cozy at La Casa de Panchita. Girls, women, volunteers and staff are warming the chilly days with their laughs and energy. One group who brought us great joy were five French scouts who volunteered with us. Manon, Valerie, Margaux, Pauline and Mathieu worked with the girls and the adults for almost a month bringing many happy moments to them.
During the week, they were at our Library “Mi Espacio para Crecer” (My Room to Grow), tutoring children who work as domestics. On Sundays they participated in our training sessions for girls, organized a cooking and handicraft class for the adults, and even played and sang a couple of songs during our anniversary celebration (we just turned 24!).
We’re so grateful to all the volunteers who work with us, and we wanted to share with you part of they do. They’re making a huge difference for the girls and women coming to La Casa de Panchita. As always, we want to express our gratitude for your continuing support. Thank you!
