I am fundraising to supply these children with materials that they need to learn and create. The school is in a town called Ollantaytambo. It is a town as well as Inca archaeological site in southern Peru some 60 kilometers northwest of the city of Cusco. It is located at an altitude of 9,160 feet above sea level.
My goal is to fill in the gaps of what the students need for school supplies. Some of the children at this public elementary don't have the necessary supplies to complete their homework. I would love to supply them with art supplies as well. I feel so strongly about the benefits of creative expression through art.
I am in contact with the Principal. With the $ collected I will purchase and mail him the supplies that he feels will be most useful.
It was a small thing for me to buy the pencils and it ended up to being a profound experience to see these children clutch their new pencils to their chests, in JOY!
A small donation would truly benefit these children and make their lives easier.
