Mal Pais Progress

We've now reached mid-term, the start of the rainy season. The past few months have welcomed a new Art teacher called Berenice to the Mal Pais School, who has lots of exciting ideas for the rest of the year including involving the students in an exterior mural on the main school building. Sara has started a dance class at the school to prepare for the annual Art Fair and her evening classes and daily classes are not only popular but we're seeing great results.

After the big renovation at Mal Pais School last year, the flag is now flying proudly at the school gate. Luckily this school has motivated staff, students and community members to keep it looking its best.

A vegetable garden designed by staff and students is already underway providing another extracurricular activity for the students to enjoy! We’re still looking for a Physical Education and Music teacher volunteer...but we're certainly moving in the right direction.

The project also recently donated funds to Santa Teresa School to help with the purchase of a school playground and many local donors have helped with these new renovations at the school. A big clean up was necessary at both schools - with the rain comes the fear of Dengue and a simple clean up can save lives!

The project would also like to help a new bilingual non-profit school in Cobano with their future goals of having 1/3 of the students on full scholarships and organizing additional programs with the Public Schools with shared resources and volunteers.

The Mal Pais Kinder program has been well received and we already have many new sponsor children waiting to start in 2013. The goal is to continue sponsoring several of these children after they finish our kinder program, by securing and financing scholarships at the bilingual school in Cobano.
