An update from Peru
Written and photos provided by Brugh, In-Country Agent, Peru
Everyone seems to be happy both at school, and at home which is great. The GapBreakers have shown some initiative in terms of the budget of their fundraising money and have shown interest in exercising a bit more influence as to how it gets spent - again its great to see them really getting involved in what they are doing in all aspects.
Next weekend the volunteers are all going to the Amazon and the week after we are going to begin the house visits, which they have again shown interest in beginning. This will really give them a reality check in terms of how the kids they teach actually live at home and should be an eye opening experience for them.
The photos attached are from my visit to the school this morning.
