Peru '17

A very busy day as we had students at the school this morning eager to learn about mountain ecosystems. The teacher strike is still on but students from the mountain communities trekked down to school (some for 2hrs) to learn from our group of dedicated SStS “strike breakers.” Our group had many great discussions about their work with the students and how special it was that their students made the trip to school for an optional lesson. Our crew was tired from a long afternoon of cleaning and painting and they are busy putting the finishing touches on tomorrow’s lesson plan now. Lauren found a bit of time during our busy evening to offer up the following summary of today’s group highs and lows:

“Today was an especially exciting day in Peru as we got to spend our first day with the children at the school. Some of our highlights from the day were interacting with the children, playing our daily soccer game, painting the mural, and spending time together as a group back at the Llama Pack house. While our day was full of exciting events, we did encounter a few challenges today including cultural and language barriers with the children, and nervousness with presenting and interacting with the students in the school.”

We’re loving the hard work and positive energy we’re getting from this group. They have been inspired by their excellent role models at the Llama Pack Project who exemplify servant leadership! 2.5 more days work at the local school and the lessons the group has planned should lead to lots of learning and laughs…
