Developing Trust and Nourishing Respect

It’s been a fruitful 2020 thus far! Thanks to your support, we were able to continue creating necessary educational materials in the elementary school as well as build more outdoor recreational equipment.  Research shows that outdoor play gives kids many valuable benefits, including the development of physical, emotional, social and cognitive skills. You should have seen the children’s faces when they saw the spaces, indoors and out. We hope you can come someday and see for yourself. The children (and all of us) are so grateful.  

One teacher said, “It has been an incredible few months where the children have deepened their level of trust, through their actions and words with one another as well as with us, their teachers. One child told me he wasn’t feeling good. He was not sure why and a little while later, he told me he missed his father.” His father works many months a year in the US which is an additional challenge amongst others that the children in this area face.

Another teacher, Olga, shares about the preschool, ”The children have been improving in their communication, showing more respect for one another, improving their friendships. When there is a conflict, we go to the peace corner and talk about our emotions. I’ve witnessed a lot of beautiful, open conversations as well as self reflection. Olga, a local, Zapotec teacher, is hoping to be able to take an educational training course to further her education. We are hoping to continue turning dreams into reality.

The children have been excelling emotionally as well as academically. All of the children in their last year of preschool have learned to read and write effortlessly and fluently through hands on materials and their teachers’ support. One parent stated, “I am so grateful for the development I’ve seen in my child, in his treatment of his siblings, how he talks to me, his reading and writing skills.  When he hears visitors speaking English, he understands some, which makes me very excited.”

90% of our students receive total or partial scholarship and several are still seeking monthly sponsorship.  

Thus far we have raised $6,777 of our $15,000 goal from 67 Donors!!! 

Thank you again for being a part of this manifesting dream!

¡Esta siendo un 2020 muy fructífero! Gracias a su apoyo, pudimos continuar creando los materiales educativos necesarios en la escuela primaria, así como construir más equipos recreativos al aire libre. La investigación muestra que el juego al aire libre brinda a los niños muchos beneficios valiosos, incluido el desarrollo de habilidades físicas, emocionales, sociales y cognitivas. Deberías haber visto las caras de los niños cuando vieron los espacios, adentro y afuera. Esperamos que puedas venir algún día y verlo por ti mismo. Los niños (y todos nosotros) estamos muy agradecidos.

Un maestro dijo: “Han sido unos meses increíbles en los que los niños han profundizado su nivel de confianza, a través de sus acciones y palabras entre ellos y con nosotros, sus maestros. Un niño me dijo que no se sentía bien. No estaba seguro de por qué y poco después me dijo que extrañaba a su padre ". Su padre trabaja muchos meses al año en los Estados Unidos, lo cual es un desafío adicional entre otros que enfrentan los niños en esta área.

Otra maestra, Olga, comparte sobre el preescolar: "Los niños han estado mejorando en su comunicación, mostrando más respeto mutuo, mejorando sus amistades. Cuando hay un conflicto, vamos al rincón de la paz y hablamos de nuestras emociones. He sido testigo de muchas conversaciones hermosas y abiertas, así como de la autorreflexión. Olga, una maestra local zapoteca, espera poder tomar un curso de capacitación educativa para continuar su educación. Esperamos seguir convirtiendo los sueños en realidad.

Los niños han estado sobresaliendo tanto emocional como académicamente. Todos los niños en su último año de preescolar han aprendido a leer y escribir sin esfuerzo y con fluidez a través de materiales prácticos y el apoyo de sus maestros. Uno de los padres declaró: "Estoy muy agradecido por el desarrollo que he visto en mi hijo, en su trato con sus hermanos, cómo me habla, sus habilidades de lectura y escritura. Cuando escucha a los visitantes hablar inglés, entiende algo, lo que me emociona mucho ”.

El 90% de nuestros estudiantes reciben una beca total o parcial y varios aún buscan patrocinio mensual.

¡Hasta ahora hemos recaudado $ 6,777 de nuestra meta de $ 15,000 de 67 donantes!

¡Gracias de nuevo por ser parte de este sueño manifiesto!
