Alex is a young man who is finishing a teaching degree. He and about 100 of his fellow classmates completed research projects and then presented them formally to fellow classmates, parents, friends and members of the Department of Education.
I met Alex last week when I visited the Escuela Oficial Rural Mixta, Barrio El Triunfo in Santa Ana, Peten. He and his classmates worked with this school for their project and presented their research today. Orfe and I were invited to the event. I cannot tell you how professional, how poised, and how prepared these young men and women were!
Alex and his group approached Orfe and Ismael sometime in July. SewHope was more than eager to work with these students. In collaboration with them, the students of the school in Triunfo received fluoride treatments. In addition, the school has received KAH food, has made at least 10 tippy taps and purchased 10 water filters. The teachers-to-be were great instructors on good health and nutrition for the students and families. We look forward to continued collaboration with this school which is about a five minute walk from my apartment.
