Location: Rio Claro

Today was our first day in Rio Claro and it was exciting to say the least. We were welcomed into Fatima’s home with open arms and contagious smiles. Our goal was simple: to create a safe and beautiful kindergarten classroom in Fatima’s home. We got straight to work organizing the enormous amount of supplies donated to this new school, as well as expanding the classroom area. Throughout the day, our hard work was interrupted with singing sessions, coloring time with local neighborhood children, and learning how to properly make delicious corn tortillas – but we could all agree those moments made the even better. Our hard work paid off, and we still have plenty to do in the next few days!
