I am stuck in Canada, and I will not be able to lead the Nica School Project to success this coming August. Luckily, my wonderful friend, Dorothy, volunteered to take on the big responsibility this August. I know that with Dorothy’s help, the project will go great!
Dorothy is a teacher from Northern California; she decided to move to Granada, Nicaragua for six months to soak up the culture and language. She has been a great help at Casa Xalteva—teaching English classes to children and teenagers who attend the before and after school program. Dorothy worked as a teacher in juvenile hall in Northern California, thus; she lends this expertise and sense of patience to the Nicaraguan kids that she works with.
She has grown a deep love for Nicaragua and was excited to offer her assistance to our project this coming August. Dorothy will work with Juan Carlos and Andres to make sure all 600 students receive their proper school supply packets. I imagine the humorous chemistry between all three of these people will make it a delightful experience!
We have almost met our donation goal—but are still in need of a little bit more. Can you help?? A little goes a long way!
