GVI Phoenix Anniversary Celebrations - Perú

This past week we celebrated the anniversaries of our schools in both Maldonado and Triunfo, where we've been working since 2006. It's such a treat to be able to see the parents, teachers, volunteers, and kids all come together in celebration of the great work these schools are doing. Maldonado was practically bouncing on its foundation from all of the dancing the kids were doing...not to mention the free for all scramble when candy came showering down on them from teachers and volunteers alike! Triunfo was covered wall to wall in streamers, balloons, and glittery posters! The kids from Triunfo put on a choreographed traditional dance that was the absolute highlight of the party. Congratulations to both schools and everyone who's been there along the way making their work possible! Especially, a huge thanks to Phoenix for supporting these schools for the past 6 years and for making this celebration possible!
