New Classroom Inaugurations - Peru

On Thursday September 1, the preschools we work with at Alta Chiriguana and Triunfo, Peru held inauguration celebrations for their new government-provided classrooms. The schools now have an additional classroom complete with chalk/whiteboards, desks, and chairs. Each class currently has 30 students enrolled who are all at varying abilities and ages.

Now that they both have an extra room, the teachers, one of who we cover some of her wage, wish to split the class into two in order to shrink the student to teacher ratio. GVI Phoenix is excited to help provide volunteers to take on a smaller class size and give these kids the attention they deserve!


How does GVI Phoenix make a difference?
