Gearing up for Adopt-A-School 2015

In our tiny office in Iquitos we are busy getting ready for April’s Adopt-A-School deliveries. Our team of helpers, from left to right: Leslie, Andre, Margarita, and Luis, are working for CONAPAC full-time for five weeks, putting together all of the student packets and boxes of classroom materials. By the time they finish they will have created individual supply packets for almost 4,000 teachers and students in Kindergarten through high school.

Thank you for supporting Adopt-A-School 2015

Muchas gracias to all of our supporters! We are getting close to our $80,000 goal. We still need a bit more financial support for this year's school supplies deliveries. Please consider adopting a school or schools, sponsoring individual school children, or making a general donation to Adopt-A-School.

"I'm happy to be doing this kind of work and appreciate the welcome CONAPAC has given.”

Salvia Ahuanari Cahuachi is the newest member of our CONAPAC team. She was born in Loreto in the district of Ramón Castilla, Pevas, and studied at the Pedagogical Institute Superior America in the city of Lima. Salvia worked several years in the Diocesan Office of Catholic Education in the Department of Loreto, Maynas Province. She has now joined CONAPAC full-time as an instructor/mentor for teachers and is working with our Adopt-A-School program. She will visit our partner communities to ensure that education is improving and that teachers are in attendance in accordance with the Peruvian Ministry of Education guidelines.
Salvia commented, "I'm happy to be doing this kind of work and appreciate the welcome CONAPAC has given.” After her 90-day trial period, Salvia will be on her own, using our little boat, the Amazon Amigo, to regularly visit communities and schools. Join us in welcoming Salvia to the best non-profit team working in the Amazon River basin of Peru!!

"These six months have been the best of my life. Thanks to all the people who help and love me.”

Our Rotary exchange student, Andrea Asipali, who is spending the year in Fremont, Michigan, gave a pictorial and verbal presentation on her home in the Amazon. She also presented the Peruvian Rotary flag to Julie Dykman, Fremont Rotary President. She has this to say, “Six months ago I started this adventure, being a Rotary exchange student in the USA. These six months have been the best of my life. Thanks to all the people who help and love me. Thanks, Rotary Intercambio Peru.” Andrea is in the second row on the far left in the photo below.
Andrea recently participated in a regional Rotary conference in Blind River, Canada where she met Rotary Exchange Students from around the world. And she has been enjoying the Michigan winter. The snow hasn’t been able to stop her from playing volleyball or trying her hand at the icy sport of curling. We are currently seeking more funds for Andrea so that she may participate in a Rotary bus trip to explore the Western United States in June. Please help us reach our goal of $1500 so that she can take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
