Despedida Especial - a fond farewell to Tracey

The end of March saw a fond farewell to Tracey our Project Manager here in Ecuador.
After 2 1/2 years Tracey is taking some time out to complete her studies before returning to GVI Phoenix later in the year.

Despedidas at each of our 3 schools included; carefully prepared songs such as - Mi
Casita, Adios Terecitia (to the tune of So Long Farewell from The Sound of Music!); a
myriad of games - involving balloons, water, 3 legged races, some artistic impressions of cats and of course the infamous Tomato Dance.

Tracey has contributed enormously to the project here in Ecuador including, but not limited to, the setting up of our sustainable high school programmes Plan Moo & Plan Cuy. Zoë O’Connor, former volunteer and project coordinator, will be continuing the good work here in Ecuador.Thank you Tracey - you will be missed! cheers
