What a wonderful evening we had on Friday night! Thank you for coming, thank you for your generosity.
Christine and Carter shared their experience, as they traveled to Guatemala last winter, and exchanged with students and teachers of TINFA's partner schools.
Cesar Cabrera, teacher of Rangel Galindo (an elementary school TINFA has partnered with for the past 3 years) told us about the impact the project has. He specifically talked about the increase in the number of families who want to have their children attend school. He also told the story of one of his student, Vanessa, whose parents were giving up on getting Vanessa to learn because of her special needs. Cesar found ways to engage with her, with the use of interactive games on the computer.
Thanks to your generosity, we raised $17,789 during the evening, and we are still counting!
And behalf of the students, their teachers in rural Guatemala, thank you very much!
