WHO ARE WE?
We have been holding weekly ESL classes for 3 years. During Covid, they were on Zoom, and we are now opeing up in person classes again.
Before covid, we were helping 55 families each month. Now (2022) we are feeding over 650 children in the Kids Kitchens - five days a week!
Sadly our "Vivero La Esperanza" in San Juan Tecomatlán had to be closed during covid. But read about our new growing food project!
We have been providing jewelry making classes since 2017 and with Mel's help we are doing so well!
For 3 years we also provided hairstyling and make up classes. Now Yoly is providing classes!
We have been giving sewing lessons for 5 years. We hope to resume at the end of May 2022.
In 2019 the women built a pizza oven and make pizzas at the weekend for sale. They also have a corn crushing machine which makes the corn tortilla mix. Now we plan to teach how to use new vegetables in their diet (especially for kidney patients).
We provided knitting classes for 3 years. It gives a sense of accomplishment and pride. We hope to recontinue in 2022.
The lending library is up and running and the children are enjoying reading! What a joy!
More Spanish books are needed though!
