Adult Learning Classes

New to February 2020 is another class organized by the Brigada and supported by Poco a Poco.  
We discovered that some of the women and men we work with in San Pedro Itzicán, are illiterate.  They only attended school for a short time.  This makes it difficult for them to find work, or to help their children with their homework.
We have found a qualified teacher who is now providing two hour classes, twice a week.  This is a paid position because this teacher is able to provide the students with a primary school certificate if they complete the course (of one year).    We hope to find donors who will support this program.

When we saw the class in action, we noticed that there were some children in the class.  We asked Anita, the Brigada leader, why they were there and not going to school to learn these skills?  
What she told us, shocked us all.
These children don't go to school.  Some have been abandoned, with no one to encourage them or register them in school.  Then Anita told us that were over 300 children abandoned in this area.
We had no idea.
But we now understand why this class is so important!
