Who works at Los Pipitos?

Hello to everyone who has generously supported Los Pipitos, our school for the disabled in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua!

 This school has garnered a lot of attention since its doors were opened for the first time in 2008. There is one full-time teacher there (Liliame) and one very dedicated volunteer, Sebastian, who is from the Netherlands but who has been working at Los Pipitos for several months now. His focus is on teaching some of the older pupils how to read and write.

In our last report, we mentioned that we've hired Oliver to help oversee the various volunteers to Los Pipitos. We also wrote about how Oliver needed an MRI to determine whether he'd one day be able to walk again. Good news and bad news here: He had the MRI and with an operation and some physiotherapy, it is possible that he may one day walk again! However (and there always seems to be a "however" in Nicaragua), this operation costs approximately $10,000. We are now working on ways to fundraise for this.
