Location: La Carpio
Traveling 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 lives 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.
