On Saturday we visited the Estaban Guardiola school in La Acequia to assess their requests for assistance. This school seems to be alive and growing! They have recently added 7th and 8th grade classrooms, with help from the community. They have requested HAF funding for an additional classroom to house a 9th grade class. They are also in need of desks and chairs for 5 classes of 45 each, or a total of 225 units.
Even though classes are over for this year, we noted that some of the boys had already taken an interest in the 11 new computers recently obtained from the government for use next year.
This week we have covered a lot of miles and seen many worthwhile projects to be done and many other needs to be met. We have been able to cover only a few in this blog. Please pray with us in the coming weeks and months as we make the tough choices to determine which of these dreams may be realized soon, and which ones will have to wait to see if sufficient funds will become available to cover them.
Thank you all, family and friends, for your support. Las Bendiciones de Dios!
