It is the beginning of the school year in Guatemala and three new elementary schools are starting this school year (school years go from January to November in Guatemala) full of excitement, with new equipment and the potential that this collaboration with TINFA and with its network of schools and teachers will bring.
These new partners are elementary schools in the Retalhuleu region of Guatemala. They are in the same region the existing ones in their 2nd and 3rd year program, strengthening the collaboration among teachers.
We are exited about closing the loop on this 3 year model, with school partners in year 1, year 2 and year 3. It is going to be a busy year for TINFA and the teachers. It is going to be some fun and deep learning for the students!
On January 28th, University Sunrise Rotary presented TINFA presented with a generous check of $16,500 for the project in Guatemala.
This was a team effort lead by the University Sunrise (kudos to Mike, Lee, Tim, Ricky and all the members), in partnership with the University Rotaract, the Mill Creek Rotary, the Guatemala Rotary del Este, as well as a generous matching from the District. What an impressive piece of work, and what an impact by the Rotary! This grant will provide all the equipment, the training and the support for one new school entering in collaboration with TINFA this year, as well as the training and the support for one school on their second year of collaboration.
