We have officially named our community school (CLICK HERE to read the post about its creation)…..
La Casa de Los Ninos!
We are having a BENEFIT PARTY TONIGHT in Huanchaco to raise funds to 1) construct an enclosed class room and a community garden, 2) buy much needed supplies like crayons, crates, paints, and paper; and, 3) most importantly, to offer FREE TUITION for children whose parents cannot afford to send them to school.
Check out our poster for the benefit party!
We are making Pisco Sours, Sushi, and hosting a live DJ from the United States, playing the dance beats all night long!
We’ve been handing out fliers and hanging posters all over town. We’re hoping for a big turn out.
I wish that all of you could be here in person tonight, but since we can’t teleport you here quite yet, if you’d still like to contribute, I’ve set up a PayPal account with the Moms so that we can safely accept donations.
(Please keep in mind that even a little bit helps a lot. See the end of this post for directions on how to send contributions through PayPal).
Now for an Update on La Casa de Los Ninos:
Last week we got another new student….meet Andrea.
AND we also got a NEW PUPPY! A street dog gave birth to a litter of puppies just around the corner from our school. Anne, our principal teacher, decided to adopt one of them, making it La Casa de Los Ninos first pet. Needless to say, the children absolutely adore Marron.
Thank you in advance for helping us create an affordable alternative school. We truly appreciate your support.
