Scholarships: One Last Trip to Chirijquiac in 2015

Text and photos by Amy Scheuren

We wrapped up the year in Chirijquiac on November 11, 2015.  All 13 of the students and their families attended the meeting during which we distributed school supplies, collected final report cards, and asked the students to write letters to their sponsors (padrinos and madrinas).  We celebrated a successful school year; all of the students in the Chirjquiac group passed!  Finally we shared a delicious end-of-year lunch prepared by the students' mothers.  Que rico!

We traveled a winding footpath through the corn to reach the house where we held the meeting.

Elizabeth, the General Projects Coordinator, helped the students with their letters.

Sintya asked her mom for help with her letter.

The students received their bags of school supplies with smiles!
