Katy is a happy and kind 14-year-old girl who attends one of our schools here in Arequipa, Peru. Katy has a learning disability and a facial disfigurement. She also has a huge smile and a cheerful disposition. Everyday Katy is able to work 1-1 with a volunteer. Katy is currently on a 1st grade level and while she may be behind, she has an incredible work ethic.
She has shown so much progress in the last year! We are able to provide many kids who need 1-1 work in our schools in Peru thanks to everyone who supports the project. If these kids didn’t have their own volunteers they may not even be in school at all. The local teachers already have two grades to work with and unfortunately, a special needs kid cannot get the attention they deserve. Thank you to all those volunteers who have worked with Katy and the other kids in the past and for everyone who has donated towards this project, now and in the future!
