There`s A Party Going on......

Tell me about it...It is Friday the 11th of November. The 19th Birthday of Escuela Katitawa. And what is a birthday party without girts?  It is not too late.  Order now.  Nothing better than CASH.

Thank You, Katitawa.

In just 80 days we will start a new year....2017.

Two events will take place that will be note-worthy to a small group of people.  Number One....Katitawa will have its 20th Birthday and I will have my 85th....God willing.

It is heard to believe that time passes so quickly. It seems like only yesterday we were planning for the 15th.  Last week while I was reflecting on what we had accomplished over the last four years, and all of the changes that have taken place....And all the Volunteers who have passed by and left their marks on the children and me, I realized that some serious thought has to take place on what will be the plan for the future....So here is the plan.

No. One...I am proclaiming...2017 to be The Year of Katitawa.  We will write the history in words and pictures.  We will ask for input from as many people as we can find that made this project what it is today. To make this happen, I am starting today a Katitawa fundraising project that will end on November 11, 2017.  The future of Katitawa will depend on how successful we are in securing its future.

My 85th birthday is also important.  I don`t know many people who are still working when they are past 85....So, I have decided that after November 11th of 2017 I will no longer be the one who is responsible for the finances of the projects.  I will still be here, I hope, to help where I can but I will need someone to help.  These past ten years have been some of the best of my life.  It gave me meaningful work.

I would like to invite everyone who has participated in our projects here in Salasaka to become a Sustaining Member.  This would go a long way in meeting our monthly obligations and give us money to finish the new projects we have started. Think about it.   Here is your chance to become a member today.

Katitawa Up-Date

Katitawa continues to grow, as well as the classes at the Library in the afternoons and evening.  The day starts at 8:00 in the morning.  We offer classes in English, Math to anyone, any age who wants to come.  In the first month we have had five English students, (including Rufino), one for a class in Electrical Theory and Installation.....And Inti is a full time student.

In the afternoon, from 2.15 to 5:00, we have between 15 and 25.  These are mostly for homework, with a little fun and games thrown. Some of the afternoon class are alumni of the school.

The library classes are also gaining in popularity.  At present we have between 15 and 20 on a daily  basis. Mostly for on-goning English Classes.

At present we have only three volunteers so the days are long.
