Greetings from Central Mexico,
The whole world is facing new norms. At Ojala ninos we have managed to continue with our after school program and workshops by facilitating smaller groups and using open air spaces. The children in the community of San Miguel Viejo still are only attending their formal academic classes two (2) days a week. Our afterschool programs along with our tutoring classes twice a week are helping our kids "overcome the educational lag" this pandemic has caused.
We started out the new year with the traditional celebration here in Mexico of The Three Kings, Los Tres Reyes by distributing each child a new back pack! We served hot chocolate and the Rosca de Reyes brought smiles to everyone.
Wednesday's we continue distributing our at home activity kits. On average 50 children come to pick up their activity and lunch. Other days we offer Dance and Movement, Ballet, Music, Choir, English and very important, the tutoring. We have started a garden and soon hope to have a computer literacy class.
Follow us to see the progress made on our lot where we hope to have even more activities.
We are fortunate to be in an area with many foreigners who often volunteer their time and expertise. The kids are use to visitors and are happy to share their work and participate in new workshops. That's what we do at Ojala Ninos. We offer space, guidance and opportunity.
Our team of guides are dedicated to the well being and development of the community we serve. Thank you for your continued support of our efforts.
