Dear Friends and LP supporters, we are so happy to let you know that this year we have so many beautiful activities and projects for our community. This newsletter will be with more photos and less words, so you can actually take a look and see actions and productive results.
Thanks to Juan Andres Rodríguez, a LP believer, and Just World International http://www.justworldinternational.org/ more than 35 children got a scholarship so they can go to school with the basic and needed school supplies, this year public education is free, but, still we have a lot of families than can not buy the school supplies for their children.Thanks to their beautiful and friendly effort, our children have shoes, sneakers, notebooks, uniforms, schoolbags, etc... thank you JWI and Juan Andrés to make opportunities real.
We also started the Parents school and meetings, where educational topics like violence prevention, sex education, drugs, family issues, and so many different topics are part of our adult project. Check some actions:
