It's Time To Take The Mystery Out Of These Pictures

These pictures were taken during an art class when the kids were learning about some of the old masters.

Here they were learning about Michelangelo.
It is not the Sistine Chapel ceiling, but the young artists got a little of the feeling.

Next...Vincent van Gogh.

The Recycling Program Is Going Strong

Every Friday the kids bring in the recycelables in to be seperated, bagged and stored until we have enough for the Ambato recycler to pick them up. A year ago, thanks to the help of a couple of our volunteers, we have a video that is on Youtube.

A Little Yoga....Makes everybody feel good.



The First Edition Of Parlante Katitawa

During the Vacation Classes we published the first edition of Parlante Katitawa. Since the "parlantes", (loudspeakers mounted on towers and scattered around the pueblo) are the principal way of spreading the local news, we decided, as an option, we would give the community something to read.

Our first edition had three advertisements at $0.50 each. The circulation is 200 and is distributed free of charge. Volume 1 No. 2, will hit the streets on tomorrow, September 19th.

A New Sign At The Entrance
