In San Pancho, school begins just as summer ends and just before we take our monthly break. It is always a spectacular opportunity to launch students into the school year with new backpacks, school supplies and an abundance of enthusiasm. Every year for the last many years Entreamigos has been able to provide these things to local students. This year every one of our 80 scholarship students received a brand new backpack and a full selection of school supplies. In addition another 120 students received school supplies to start their year. This abundance is made possible by the generous contributions of our Scholarship donors and by the constant stream of school supply donations by visitors and tourists to our center. We would especially like to thank the World Ventures travel club; the visits of their members and their generosity in bringing supplies made much of this year’s giveaway a possibility. In addition to the school supplies given to students, big boxes of supplies were donated to every public school classroom in San Pancho and the nearby communities of Las Lomas and San Ignacio.
Thank you all!
