Good morning from Guatemala.
I’m in Sololá to attend the 10th anniversary activities of the school we are supporting in the community of El Triunfo. Since 2006, we’ve been supporting students in the community beginning with scholarships and later with the establishment of a middle school.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon attending the activity to elect the senoritas of the school, which included traditional dance, some not so tradition dance, a bull fight(!), skits, and a replay of the France-Croatia World Cup final. Whew! You can take a look at a selection of my photos from yesterday here. This afternoon I am returning for a “cultural” event followed by a sports day tomorrow.
For those of you who attended or made a donation to our “Mid-Season Bash for Guatemala” I have some good news for you. Next week we will be buying the needed audio visual equipment for the classrooms. Without your generosity we would not be able to purchase the equipment. Your donations also help to pay the salaries of the school staff and teachers. You can donate online through Casa Pueblito or mail in a cheque. (A cheque actually ensures that more of your money goes directly to the school!) But here’s the link for online donations –
(If you are donating online please follow: under “Donate To This Charity Now”, please select option #2 “El Triunfo School Project.” You may also wish to indicate that your donation is for Ken’s School in the note.)
You can also mail a cheque payable to Casa Pueblito or drop one off with me.
