Animal month- Perú

The month of November is animal month here on the Phoenix Perú projects. The animal themed events began on Wednesday November 9 when the kids at Maldonado had a great time showing off their pets in the school's annual pet day! We saw everything from guinea pigs to cockfights... An exciting day to say the least!

On the same day 59 kids from Triunfo took a field trip to the zoo and the following day as Maldonado also got to see all the animals up close. The kids had an awesome time looking at all of the different animals (many seeing some animals for the first time ever!) From lions, to penguins, to condors the excited expressions on the kids faces were priceless. Talk about a fun week!
