Happy Summer from Umbrella!

Thank you for continuing to support our work at Umbrella Initiatives Foundation.  Even with the World Cup in full swing we continue with only one goal and that is improving the lives and educational opportunities for children living in impovershed communities.  Over the past two months we have been working tirelessly throughout Peru with the SuperReaders (Proyecto Superlectores) Project. The goal of this project is to encourage literacy and reading among elementary age students through empowering youth and young adult volunteers. The project is a direct outcome of the Backpack Project in that it provides a more sustained interaction with the community throughout the academic year. 

Stephany Loayza helping students practice their reading and writing skills.
Your support allows volunteers like Stephany to use her skills to teach and help children learn how to read and better understand their world and environment.  At the end of the day our hope and goal as that through our projects and work we are not empowering local community groups but also allowing a space for play and fun in the educational process.  As we all know children need the space to be children and this project provides that space as well as an opportunity to learn.
Your support is critical to our work Donate Today securely via PayPal.

As a not for profit organization that works primarily with families and communities in Latin America we believe that all life has dignity and families should not be separated.  We deplore the actions of governments around that world and particularly in the United States that are working to destroy families and subjugating ideas of justice and mercy to nationalistic tendencies. 
At Umbrella Initiatives we do not want to send you tons of updates and emails because we know you are busy. However we would love to hear back from you.  Would you like to receive more frequent emails?  Do you think we are sending the right amount of messages? Let us know and we will respond accordingly.
