Educational Fun in Guatemala

I’d like you to meet a unique woman, Silvia Saga de Pineda. Silvia lives in Guatemala where she teaches 27 kids (including her 5 year old daughter) in the garage of her home. Living in a high-risk, disadvantaged area, Silvia and her husband feel strongly that change can come about by offering each and every child a quality education. Silvia wrote to me last week, letting me know that she has been teaching her students using the songs in our newsletters. You can learn more about Silvia’s program by visiting her website, http://www.compartiendoesperanza.ws, or contact her directly to donate supplies to her school: silvisaga@gmail.com.
