Voices of Youth Ambassadors Visit Ayacucho!

Our ambassadors (members of Voices of Youth ages 18+) traveled to Ayacucho this month to attend El Congreso de Jovenes (Youth Congress), lead a two day leadership workshop at a local school, and learn about the history and culture of Ayacucho. Below is a short video of highlights! 

Local Volunteers Take on

Lesson Planning


Several local volunteers are learning how to create effective lesson plans and activities for our holistic tutoring program (reforzamiento escolar) that engage, challenge, and excite students. Above, Brayan explains "Mathematical Jenga" where students must solve the problems written on each block while keeping the tower standing!
 

Thank you!

Thank you to all our friends and supporters who joined us for fundraising events in Minneapolis, MN this past month!

We would also like to thank Brenda Christensen & Tom Barry for their leadership in providing a matching grant that helped Building Dignity exceed its fall fundraising goals.
