An Incredible Year!

Dear Supporter of Excellent Education,

For Laura and I, it is a joy to walk through our little town of Camasca. When school is not in session, about half of the children 10 and under that we see attend the bilingual school. They try out their English with us, "Good Morning. How are you? I am fine thank you." The older children have conversations with us in English. They are so happy, bright and engaged children. The value of this education, of excellent quality and accessible, will yield fruitful opportunities for them, and is becoming the model for education in Honduras. Thank you for investing and believing in children who instill hope for a better world.

In Honduras, the school year runs from February through November and we are winding down the year. What a great year! We started the year by building and openning our third building of classrooms, and now have the capacity to house students from Kindergarten through sixth grade. We have opened our doors to many projects and programs in the community, including the Honduran Robotics Team that Shoulder to Shoulder sponsored for their international competition in Washington, DC. We are constantly adding new technology in our classrooms to make teaching more exciting, engaging, and effective. Our school has participated in many events within the community including dance and art competitions, parades, and even our first-ever marathon. We have welcomed talented and inspiring volunteers. 

Our volunteers bring spirit and wonder to our school. Backpack Matt, his blog name, has traveled from Indonesia to Chile, but has returned to Camasca for his second volunteer experience. An accomplished videographer and photographer, he has captured the beauty of our shchool and the students. Please watch the many smiles of our students in Matt's video, Facing the Future.

Peace,

Paul and Laura
