Teach to Teach: Training Women to Teach Spanish

by Awamaki
Jun 11, 2013

Support Awamaki's Spanish teachers this Wednesday!

Teachers from Awamaki's Spanish Teacher Cooperative have been working hard, leading Spanish lessons for all of Awamaki's new volunteers and a good number of the tourists who pass through Ollantaytambo. Pictured above is Eunhae and Ruth. Eunhae, from South Korea and currently studying at Bryn Mawr College is one of Awamaki's newest volunteers in the Community Education program, and Ruth is her Spanish teacher. Eunhae and Ruth have been hitting the road in Peru lately, exploring the Sacred Valley and speaking Spanish as they go!

Like Ruth, all of Awamaki’s Spanish teachers are dedicated and passionate about teaching Spanish, and have been able to make their classes fun and unique because of all the support their project has received from donors like you! The more captivating the classes, the more people are interested in taking them, which leads to increased economic opportunities for the women.

Are you interested in continuing to support Awamaki's "Teach to Teach: Training Women to Teach Spanish" project? Donate this Wednesday, June 12th and take advantage of Global Giving's Donor Matching Day! All donations made on June 12th will be matched by Global Giving by 30%, but only until matching funds run out... so make sure to make your donation early in the morning!

And if we have the highest number of unique donors on Wednesday, we have the chance to win a $1,000 bonus from Global Giving, so even the smallest donations can make a huge difference to Spanish teachers like Ruth!

Thank you for your continued support. The wonderful work at Awamaki would not be possible without the generous donations from supporters like you! Keep track of our donation succes this Wednesday with us as we post updates to Facebook.
