Opening New Chiclayo Schools
( in new method of working within Ministry of Education)
Operating under contracts with three State Schools in the Chiclayo area, we opened our Summer programme 9 January 2006. Soon we were teaching and helping 70 children in the poorest barrios of Chiclayo. Bravo to our new streamlined team of international volunteers, Nana, Hunter and Evan; among the Peruvian staff we have some welcome faces from last year, and of teachers we now enjoy the best we have known so far in Chiclayo.
programme to find and provide education for the poorest children in the
Chiclayo area has been operating for 6 months now. During this time we have
brouht more than 150 children into our classes. We have opened three of
our own little shanty schools, and now moved them into premises of th Ministry
of Education. We feel Chiclayo has the potential to rival Trujillo for the
number of extremely poor children we are able to help and educate.
