Enjoying the Fruits of the Rainy Season

By Evelind Schecter | Program Manager

This should be the tail end of the rainy season, but we have daily deluges that keep everything a lush green.  The children are all studying at Warm Heart, as the schools are still closed due to COVID,  The 7-12 graders have taken over Barb's Place, the Community Education Center, which now has its own network so the rest of us have some bandwidth.  The older students have online classes, so stay glued to their screens all day.  The younger students pick up assignments from school every week and finish them at their own pace during the week, with oversight by the staff and after-school tutors.  

This leaves the younger children ready to help in the gardens first thing in the morning when it is cool.  The older children get out to weed and plant on the weekends.  In between, the staff is ready with new projects to keep the children busy.  The older girls have started a cactus garden and everyone is encouraged to add his/her favorite flowers to the new flower garden.  Empty pots are quickly requisitioned for new flowers.  Anyone coming from the mountain villages is encouraged to bring cuttings. 

We have made some progress on the water system, replacing the submersible pumps on both existing wells.  We are still in queue for the well-driller to come to review our wells and discuss the potential for a new well.  In the meantime, we have been repairing the big blue and green water tanks to collect rainwater for the plants and washing. 

Your generosity keeps the children fed and washed!  Thank you for all your enthusiastic support!


Warm regards,


Dana, Michael, Evelind and the Children of Warm Heart
