The Summer season here is Lake Chapala Mexico is time of year when many expat volunteers return North to the US & Canada to spend time with their families. With their absence the pace of activity at the school naturally slows down due to reduced resources.
All of our staff and students are enthusiastic about the results that have been achieved to date in learning & practicing these new skills & knowledge. Once our volunteer resources return in September & October we look forward to recommencing our CPR Training partnership with Cruz Roja Chapala.
We look forward to getting going again in the Fall, upon the return of our Snowbird Volunteers.

The students of HHWT were eager to learn and grow, taking advantage of the innovative classes and life skills education offered to them. One such class was CPR and first aid, which taught them how to respond to emergencies and save lives.
The students learned the basics of CPR, including chest compressions and rescue breaths. They also learned how to assess a situation, call for help, and administer first aid. The class was taught by a qualified instructor who made sure that each student understood the material and could apply it in a real-world scenario.
Throughout the course, the students practiced their skills on mannequins and participated in role-playing exercises. They learned how to recognize the signs of a heart attack, stroke, and choking, and how to respond quickly and effectively. By the end of the course, the students were confident in their ability to save lives and respond to emergencies.
The impact of the CPR and first aid class went beyond the classroom. The students became ambassadors for their new skills, sharing their knowledge with their families, friends, and communities. They organized CPR training events, reaching out to those who didn't have access to the same level of education. They used their new knowledge to make a difference, helping to save lives and promote public health.
The CPR and first aid class was just one example of how HHWT was empowering their students to make a difference in their communities. By providing life skills education and innovative classes, they were creating a generation of leaders who were equipped to tackle the challenges of the future. And the impact of their work was felt far beyond the walls of the classroom.
Thank you for partnering with HHWT and hel[ping providet the CPR and first class every year.
