By Sandy Watson - Field Coordinator, Abba's House Children's Center
Although we have not yet received acceptal funding amounts to realize the goal of building a vocational school in Cienfuegos, we continue to pray that the funds will come. We have more involvement of the community than at any other time in the history of the Children's Center. We are also working on a service learning project involving US college students from Louisiana traveling to Cienfuegos in 2023 during spring break where they will be divided into teams working in several different areas related to their majors. From this initiative, we hope to gain more individuals interested in working long-term with the Center, and helping to put in place a vocational curriculum.
The children are getting a playground thanks to a donation. The playground will be the first in Cienfuegos and will consits of swings, slides, climbing apparatuses, and smaller equipment such as balls, gloves, jumpropes, etc.
