Updates From Aura’s Elementary School Water Project -Guatemala
We recently received photos, updates, and a thank you letter from Children International for our recently completed Aura’s Elementary School Water Project. Thanks again to Aura’s House donors for making a difference in the lives of so many children as well as to their community.
Hello, friends! I hope all is well with everyone. Thank you again for your warm friendship and incredible support of our programs around the world! I am delighted to tell you that the special project for which you raised funds in Guatemala is now complete — and the students of the elementary school now have running water and some new didactic materials to aid in their educational progress!
The new potable water supply that you and your donors funded is a HUGE benefit to everyone at the school … teachers, parents and children alike. Prior to the installation of the new pipes, faucets, etc. the children were asked to bring water from home each day to wash their hands and use the bathroom. With the new water supply, it is a much more sanitary environment for the children and much easier for everyone concerned!
The little ones were especially grateful for the crayons, markers, paper, glue, etc. that they received. You can see the sweet smiles on their faces in the enclosed photographs!
Some of the children also drew colorful pictures to share with you … and I’ll scan those and send them to you shortly. Aura Yesenia also wrote a letter of thanks for the support you provided the school. This is the school that she attended as a child, and also the same one where she worked when she first set the course to become a school teacher! I’ll send her letter to you as well.
I hope you enjoy the attached photos — and knowing how much your friendship and support means to these children, teachers, parents and everyone else in the community. We can’t thank you enough for your support and many, many efforts on behalf of the children in our program. All the best to everyone!

Thanks so much everyone for helping make this school better able to serve its students and their families!
