On Wednesday of this past week, we finished delivering packages to all the afternoon students. FYI: the packages consist of 6 notebooks, 2 pens, 1 pencil, an eraser, and a sharpener. Then on Thursday, we went to visit the morning students and bring them their packages. It became apparent that many students who were in need of school supplies, did not receive anything. So we got the teachers to write out all the names of the students who didn't receive a package and promised to return the next week to finish off the delivery. The next day (Friday) we bought all the supplies for all the students in the morning classes and on Wednesday of this week, we will be finishing off our delivery of school supplies. It is satisfying knowing that all the students will soon have all the proper school supplies to properly take advantage of their education.
Another exciting update is that we have ordered and payed for 6 large white boards (pizarras)for the classrooms. They will be ready for us on Tuesday and we will be able to bring the teachers brand new white boards for their classrooms, as well as new dry eraser markers. This donation is not only going to make the lives of the teachers easier but going to improve the learning process of the students.
It is because of all your kind donations that we have been able to make all this possible for the school and the students that attend. It is our hope that we can continue to make improvements to the school as well as the neighbourhood of El Pantanal.
