Isabella Aguilar, treasurer for IYH completed "adopt a Classroom" project in Cali, Colombia this past August. This year in addition to donating all of the school desks for the 4th grade class at "escuela Francisco de Paula Santander", IYH established a library for the children. Tables, Chairs, bookshelves and More than 800 books were sent to the school in preparation to Isabella's arrival.
The space was also cleaned, painted and conditioned for the children to have a beautiful and inviting space.
In addition IYH donated 36 preschool desks for a different school "Escuela Purificacion Trujillo" .
The children from both schools received a book bag with supplies and a small lunch.
The day was a very exciting and emotional one. The children expressed their happiness and gratitude through different presentations of cultural dances and activities.
Thank you to everyone for making this project a huge success. Special thanks to Jhoanna Franco for representing us and helping Isabella.
