Mother's Day in Nicaragua

This week we celebrated Mother’s Day in our projects in La Thompson and Chiriza. In La Thompson, the children made cards for their mothers in the morning and later, the mothers were invited to the school for a party just for them. Musical chairs, a raffle with prizes, dancing, a cat walk competition and a speech by GVI Phoenix local staff member, Yessenia, commemorated this special day.

The mothers enjoyed themselves and the party was topped off with a cake and refreshments. In Chiriza, the children spent the morning working diligently on cards for their mothers or people in their lives whom they consider their mothers. The work done was quite impressive and put a smile on the faces of mothers across Chiriza.


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
