We've just celebrated Adopt-A-School's 20th anniversary! After successfully completing two weeks of deliveries in April, and thanks to our delivery volunteers and our donors, the teachers and the children in our 56 Adopt-A-School communities have the materials they need for another school year. Each community prepared a celebration to greet the volunteers, Peruvian Education Department representatives, and CONAPAC staff. There was a lot of singing and dancing during the presentations, as well as speeches and introductions.
Middle Schools in Las Vegas, NV sponsored several of our communities. In this photo their letters and posters were presented to new Peruvian friends in Santa Martha.
Every child in CONAPAC's donor-sponsored schools received student school supply packets from the Adopt-A-School volunteers. Every school received a year's supply of classroom materials.

CONAPAC is a Peruvian non-profit organization whose mission is to promote conservation of the rainforest through education of its stewards, the people who live along the Amazon and Napo Rivers.
