The house has been jumping with activities these days. There have been workshops for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, gardening, compost understanding, group support to namea few.
I want to introduce you to the teams responsible for the gardening component, volunteers getting the dispensas ready and youth volunteers making plans to get into their educational programs as things begin returning to “normal.”
The gardening groups are organized with youth volunteers as leaders and families who have expressed an interest.
I might get a tad confused and I apologize.
Sunday there are 2 groups. Sembrando el futuro (4-5) with youth volunteer Juan Diego and Tesoro Verde (5;30-6:30) with youth volunteer Yessica.
Monday Mi amiga la tierra with youth volunteer Irma, Lizandro y Carmita
Tuesday Lu’um Ya’ax with youth volunteer Dario y Maria Luisa
Wednesday El Amor a la siembra with youth volunteer Karol
Thursday Sembrando en familia with youth volunteer Galilea
Saturday Sembrando Valores with youth volunteer Sinai y Damaris
Each group has been involved in active workshops creating special gifts for Mother and Father Days as well as gardening activities. All material used in the gift workshops have been recycled material as has most of the material for the gardening ones. The gardening ones focused on the 3 Rs and the groups made their composts and insecticides for their plants.
Casa de las mujeres de Chicxulub
Liz, the hairdresser some of you know from Chixculub has a group of ladies doing embroidery on rebozos (shawls). These are a few examples. Cost is 520 pesos.
Malu is working with the youth volunteers who are interested in continuing their education. There will be an announcement in September about our new program called Programa de Carrera de Chicxulub. A tad late getting started but better late than never!
Hi Sharon Have you been to the nursing home lately, just thinking of these folk and wondering how they are doing and who is still there
No-one is allowed in without permission from the madre. I asked her about any activities and her response was “we are doing well.” It is hard to answer your question and if the isolation is ever lifted I will visit and see for myself. I have not seen anything in local papers.
Looks like the kids learned a lot! Wonderful pictures! Miss you all.
Hi Michelle. Yes the kids are learning a lot with gardening, composting, homemade insectacides and weeding. And they are loving it all. They have also been busy developing gifts for Mother’s and Father’s days using the 3 Rs of fducing, recycling, reusing. They have been very creative in using these 3 Rs as they proceed, and their imaginations make the sky the limit! Great leadership with Carmita and the youth volunteers.
The plants all look so wonderful and healthy! The kids look happy, even behind their masks. Cudos to everyone involved in this terrific project!
Thanks Kitty It is amazing how energy and fun is transpiring.
