Location: La Carpio
Travelling back to La Carpio for a student led day was exciting. We all were anxious to see how our student planned event would turn out. We held an Art Festival for kids down by the river that live in extreme poverty. Activities included bracelet making, face painting, and lessons on health. A group of boys went around teaching about effective exercise and respectful relationships. And a few others went back to put the finishing touches on Stella’s house. After a day of rowdy kids we all met up for a home-stay family dinner and talent show. All enjoyed the night and felt good about their accomplishments.
