Greetings from Ecuador
- Hello Everybody back in Indy!
I thought I'd share some of my PC experiences with you since I've
been in Ecuador. First, training was intense and it was definitely
difficult for me to be in such a large group for such a long time.
Not to mention that the group was one of the most diverse and
opiniated groups I've ever been in. I almost went home before
swearing in but my group is also very supportive and wouldn't hear of
it so I ended up giving one of the speeches at swearing in,
intersting how life unravels.
My site is in the heart of Quito! I live in a two bedroom with
electric shower apartment close to the Quito international airport!
Its crazy, I know. I commute 45 minutes to work everyday by metrobus
and teach classes in self esteem and values from 7:30 am to 2:30pm.
I also talk with the girls about family issues and will start doing
Today I witnessed a girl and her family have to come in and talk to
the directora about not being able to send her to school anymore
because her mother took off and the grandmother doen's have enough
money to pay for her to keep going to school. They were all crying
and it was probably one of the saddest thingsd I've seen.
If any of you know of scholarships or grants that this girl might be
applicable for she would love the opportunity of continuing school
and I would be extremely thankful to hear of something that might
help some of these girls.
Thanks a million for all the support and hope everyone is doing well.
