Carnival in Perú

As “Carnival” is celebrated all over Latin America, GVI Phoenix Peru felt holding a Carnival Day during our summer school program would be great way to incorporate a local custom with new activities.

Volunteers planned fun activities for the students to participate in such as face painting, mask making, fingernail painting, puzzles, an egg-spoon race, doing the limbo, a movie, and, as is traditional, a water balloon fight!

Students were able to rotate through the different activities, and even the local work crew got in on the fun! As a special treat, fruit salad and cake was served along with the usual sandwiches. Great fun was had by all!


How does GVI Phoenix make a difference?

The following film was made in Guatemala, though the message is the same across all GVI Phoenix projects
