We hope that this update finds you well. Here in Guatemala our team members are doing great! Our alternative school has been keeping us busy. During the school break the past few months we had been meeting once a week with a group of around 1 dozen children from 3 to 11. As school (in some form) in likely to start up this month, we are now meeting with the kids just once a month in our town of Itzapa and we have a request to form a new group in the rural village of Chijocon, San Martin where children don't have access to anything close to the activities that we are realizing in our school. Each time we get together we learn about a new country and do 15+ hands on activities and experiments associated with that country. So far we have visited Australia, Russia and Canada. We also focus on practical life skills where children learn manners and how to care for themselves and their surroundings as well as food preparation. We also recently unrolled a reading corner where the kids can take some time out to flip through their choice of books. We currently have raised funds for providing the snack for our Itzapa group for the entire year and any additional funds we raise will be used to provide snack for the Chijocon children. In this update you will find photos of examples of some of the hands on learning activities that were made possible through your support.
