PreSchool Visit Day and Nuevo Chimbote

School visit in Constructiones ZoneTessa, Leti, Ana, and Barbara went to the only school open today in the Constructione Zone. The families were congregating awaiting their new lot assignments so only 6 of the 15 4 yr olds were at school. This school was approx 16×16 sq ft. The young teacher Beatrice worked well with the children and was very interested in the activities we did with the children.  The conditions in this area are very poor and children sometimes come to school hungry.  There were few supplies for the school.  The teacher has had to relocate twice and has had her supplies stolen a couple times. Leti did the number game with fishing that the kids loved. Ana did a color recognition game with colored tissue paper that the kids glued onto matching paper. Barb did a 4 station obstacle course, follow the leader game.  We met the other WGC volunteers except Zaina who was in her element with Jackie (Incarnate Word Missionary with the Hospicio Santiago) going to visit 5 hospice patients in their homes.  We predict she’ll be a great doctor and we will all say we knew her when…Lunch in Nuevo Chimbote and then some went to get ready for Alison’s afternoon workshops with Pushaq Warmi on their group development and learning some new tools for training other women in the community -they want to expand their community presence and service.
