School exposición day - Perú

Today in Perú both of the schools of Triunfo and Maldonado participated in an exposición along with all the other rural institutions in the area. It was a fantastic day and a great opportunity for the schools to show off a bit! Each school brought student's work and projects to put on display so that the education board and other schools could see the great work that was being done.

Each school also did a performance. Triunfo did a traditional dance, dresses and dance lessons all paid for by Phoenix! They put on a flawless performance. However, by far, the star out of the whole day was our very own Naomi, 2nd grade Maldonado. For those of you who know her she may be small, but man she’s got a voice!

She sang so beautifully that people came out of their offices and were watching from balconies as well as applauding constantly during her time in the spotlight. An encore was requested by the education board and she ended up singing 4 songs. We work with 92 exceptional primary school students who we are so proud of for all their hard work and determination.


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
