Construction and finishing details are complete at the computer lab in Guatemala! The ribbon cutting ceremony was great fun and the lab is already hosting its first classes. A huge thank you to our volunteers, the students, coordinators and everyone else who made this project a possibility. Check out these shots from the ceremony and the finished product.
“We tiled a floor, painted and helped clear away grass in the play area. These were all areas that will be used by the children. It was a good balance of work and free time. We feel we learned a lot about the culture of Peru through our excursions during our free time. The food was incredible, Alicia is a fantastic cook. The best part was going to the homes of people and seeing how they lived. That gave me the most insight into the culture. We decided to have the kids experience the American tradition for Easter eggs. We had a difficult time answering why there's an Easter bunny and why it hides eggs. They did enjoy the hunt, and the candy. You realize how happy people are with a simple life. They didn't have internet and TV 24 hours a day, but spent their time talking to each other."- Donna Kaylor, Peru Cuzco, March 2013
