The children and teachers greeted us with happy faces and filled with joy.
Master Maestro Alberto was ready for the challenge of adding 2 bathrooms for the school. A bathroom for the boys and another for the girls with toilets, running water, sinks and possibly a shower.
The existing bathroom is not functional but can be remodeled and another bathroom attached. Can you imagine the boost in self esteem for these young children not to have to wash their hands outside in buckets of water with the assistance of a teacher.
My indigenous friend Mercedes attends university and is studying to be an International Attorney. One more year of school and then on to law. Mercedes has volunteered to bring a group of University students to paint the exterior of the school in the near future. Our school cook said she will make lunch for the volunteers as a thank you.
I am in Cotacachi, Ecuador and bringing people together to help. I will be here through November and then back to Florida. You can contact me at MickyEnright@gmail.com with any questions about how you can help these kids.
If you would like to come for a visit arrangements can be made. We are always in need of school supplies to be carried in suitcases. The children at Agualongo school are under the age of 6. I am working on a volunteer program to assist the teachers in the classroom.
Cost of the bathrooms should be under $600 – WE NEED DONATIONS to make the bathrooms functional and safe for the kids.
