Mother's Day in the Ecuadorean Andes

Día de La Madre (Mother´s Day) falls in May in Ecuador, and Huayrapungo once again celebrated in style. The Dads displayed their culinary skills and prepared and cooked the food.

The Mums enjoyed playing silly games and watching their children present dances and plays, and the volunteers sang songs with the children in grades 1 and 2. After feasting on the lunch all the Mums ended the day with cake – what a great celebration!
