|about half of the schools books, all donated by BBW|
The books we have brought in the past years are very well organized, by grade level even! The 2 classrooms contain 2nd, 3rd, and 6th graders in one room, with 1st, 4th, and 5th graders in another. This way the older students can help the younger students.
This small school is way up in the mountains, which provides beautiful views, but a long trek up a terrible road to get there. Most of the children live off of subsistence farms in the area, and even though they are only about an hour from the urban capital of Tegucigalpa, their lives feel like a million miles away.
|One thing they have in common with the city kids -- they LOVE Dora la Exploradora!|
This school was visited by volunteers Kira and Alice Gartell in July 2011.
