COVID-19 has heavily impacted our families who live day-to-day.
Our scholarship families come from situations of poverty and very low-income. Most parents of our scholarship students work in the informal economy (selling trinkets on the streets, washing clothing, working in construction or being a hired hand). With the current quarantine, they are left with no income and are unable to work from home. In this time we are providing dance classes via Youtube Live and assist with access to internet so children can continue their dance education and receive encouragement (through our daily Bible verses and challenges) from their homes. With your help, we are also cautiously distributing food packages and feminine products to our families in need.
Help provide food to these families!
Miss. Christine first came to Guatemala in January 2016 for a month on scholarship to study business Spanish. Later that year in Fall 2016 she returned to conduct interviews with Mayan weavers for her thesis project. It was placed on her heart to begin teaching ballet and during this time she began teaching ballet classes on the side.
