Program for children and young adults with different Needs
In November 2021, one of our new volunteers, Janet Saklad, talked to Anita Torres about creating a program for special needs children - as Janet's background was a nurse for special needs children and adults. Anita was thrilled, because she really saw a need for such a program in the area. Many of these children and adults have never been to school and have been given very few activities to stimulate or encourage them to learn.
Since December 2021, twice a week in Mezcala and San Pedro Itzicán, our volunteers, together with the children and their mothers, work to teach, encourage and guide them to learn and enjoy this educational experience.
We have purchased many special supplies and special toys - and our grateful thanks to our wonderful donors.
(We are always looking for people to drive our volunteers to San Pedro or Mezcala as they don't have cars themselves.)
