In Peru and Bolivia, the start of the school year has been pushed back to April. Our teachers and coordinators are working hard from home on refining their lesson plans, reviewing teaching strategies, and creating new culturally-based projects. Instead of being a setback, these two weeks of state-enforced quarantine have given us time to clarify any doubts around our methodology and prepare more lessons for the students.
Thankfully, we live in a time when technology allows for easy collaboration at a distance, so we are all in contact and supporting one another.
The people we partner within the communities where we work are the ones producing the food that is keeping all of us fed whole trapped in our homes, a topic that continues to get more attention and hopefully will not be forgotten.
Stay safe everyone!
