BENEFITING: Mano A Mano International Partners
EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2015
Hello! In June I am going to help present a professional development workshop for rural teachers in Arani, Bolivia. This workshop is sponsored by Mano a Mano, an international non-profit based in St. Paul, MN, and I will be traveling with 8 other volunteer teachers from Minnesota. My summer school income and the scholarship I received from Unity Church-Unitarian in St. Paul will cover the costs of my trip, so my fundraising efforts are entirely dedicated to supporting the purchase of basic school supplies for teachers and students in Arani.
For the last 20 years, Mano a Mano staff and volunteers have succeeded in building hundreds of sustainable medical clinics, reservoirs, roadways, and schools in some of the poorest areas of Bolivia. Since I've taught English to immigrant adults in the U.S. for over 20 years, and I’m fluent in Spanish, I’m thrilled to be able to contribute to this teacher-training effort that Mano a Mano initiated just three years ago. If you would like to help me raise money to buy school supplies for over 100 Bolivian teachers and their students, I would very gratefully accept your donation! Thank you very much!!! Muchisimas gracias!!! Alison
