We have more to report from August through December 2013. Your donations have been hard at work supporting opportunities for indigenous Pitaguary youth to make their dreams come true.
In these last several months, we have accomplished:
Self-esteem and biodance classes
After-school activities with tutoring
Indigenous rituals inspired by the Lakota (sacred sauna) and strengthening of Pitaguary culture through the Toré dance
Participation in events that promote human rights and indigenous and environmental health and education
Participation of 6 youths in the national college entrance exam (ENEM)
Monthly meetings with parents and students to evaluate their progress and the program
We sure have been busy – and all of this would not have been possible without your support. We were able to serve about 150 indigenous people through the various activities listed above. The result was personal and intellectual growth, boosting of self-esteem, identification with indigenous culture, greater awareness of environmental issues, and greater motivation to study and be involved in the community.
Thank you to all of our donors! Mitakuye Oyasin (We are all relatives)
