It’s summer vacation south of the equator, which means Intiwawa transforms from an after-school program to an AM summer camp. We are currently in the second full week of programming, and are very happy to share the classes and activities our volunteers have organized for Intiwawa’s summer students :).
Getting sick while away from home is both scary and a pain in the a*s. And yet your body is likely to break down in one way or another: you are confronting new germs; potentially doing more in day than you would in your home country; potentially putting yourself in physically trying situations.
For most of it’s life, Intiwawa has focused its efforts and activities on the children of San Isidro. It is now our pleasure to announce a new project that will directly benefit every member of the family, no matter the age: a bakery in San Isidro!
Betsy came to Intiwawa in September 2017 and will stay until March 2018 !
Fridays at IntiWawa are much more laid back than Monday-Thursday. There’s no homework, which means no confiscating cellphones and no embarrassing yourself trying to explain long division. The kids play board games, make art projects, choreograph dances, etc., and volunteers take turns cooking meals for everyone (two moms from San Isidro cook M-Th).
