Independent volunteer project in Salasaka, Ecuador, since 1997
One went south, the other went north
Last Friday Krystal from The United States went home and the Friday before Amaia from Spain travelled to Peru.
Amaia Sanchez has been at Escuela Katitawa for six weeks. After being a helping teacher in group 2 the first couple of days, Amaia took on the task of being their primary teacher with great enthusiasm.
Group 2 has learnt a lot over the last weeks eg. in math where all of them are getting better and better at "mas y menos" etc.
Besides teaching, Amaia also helped our cook Virgina, as often as she had time. She travelled to Peru, where she is meeting new friends, who also volunteered here at Katitawa.
Krystal Kuehl stayed here at Katitawa for two months and did a variety of jobs. Through out the 8 weeks she took care of the garden and did valuable researched about different plants, herbs and vegetables.
Beside the garden, Krystal worked with the preschool kids, taught in group 1, helped with the music classes and did the layout for the nine meter long "theater backdrop" for the upcoming Christmas play.
