Hear our volunteer Noémie’s perspective of life with Intiwawa!
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 :).
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).
Jakob came to Intiwawa in September 2017 and will stay until summer 2018 !
Last weekend was an important one for us — our 10th Annual Culture Congress. We brought 50 kids from San Isidro to our second location in Corporaque for an entire weekend of cultural and recreational activities!
Justin arrived in August 2017 and will stay until May 2018 !
We have a new team!
After celebrating Intiwawa’s 10-year anniversary, we decided now is a good moment to bring fresh wind into our work.
On the Saturday before Halloween, we threw a BANGIN’ party for the San Isidro community. We took the holiday as an opportunity to reach out to the community at large and to get our dang spook on, and what ensued was a joyful, energetic, sugar-fueled and love-based celebration.
