Skits in La Libertad

(para leer en español, dele clíc aquí)

This past weekend, the scholarship students in both El Triunfo and Sacacoyo finished up the school year with a presentation to their families and adults in the communities about their experiences this year as students and as youth. In El Triunfo, the six scholarship students just finished their first year in high school, which is outside of their community in the town of Santa Tecla. It’s been quite a year of new experiences for them, and they have really risen to the challenge of leaving on the bus early every morning, meeting new classmates, and adjusting to the demands of high school. University students from San Salvador joined us that morning to share about their experinces and to start planting seeds about studying at the university level with the high schoolers.

In Sacacoyo, the students presented a skit about violence and insecurity and they way it affects their studies and efforts at organizing as a youth group in Sacacoyo. Afterwards, we talked about the topic with the parents and families in attendance and imagined how to take small steps towards more ooportunities for youth.

  1. Looking forward to seeing the map of “Nuestra Comunidad” when we come to visit in February. It is hard to believe that the school year is already finished – hope that all of the students have a wonderful time with their friends and families over the school holiday.

  2. Thank you so much to the Women’s Group “Laura Smith” for the lovely greeting cards I just received. We will sell them at church, and use the proceeds to fund scholarships at our sister community El Ocotillo in Morazan!
