CHICUCHAS WASI
June 25, 2013

I have been involved with Chicuchas Wasi since its inception and have visited the school at least 8 times. The girl’s faces tell the story. They are alert, energetic and happy to be in school, demonstrated by their positive school progression and interest in extra activities. Their teachers understand the importance of educating the girls in order to move them out of poverty and to give them opportunities that without an education would be unavailable to them. This project definitely deserves, needs, and appreciates your support.

CHICUCHAS WASI
December 13, 2012

I have been actively involved in Chicuchas Wasi since its inception 25 years ago by its inspirational founder, Rae Lewis. Starting as a grass roots home for abandoned street children it has evolved over the years into a school for indigenous, poor girls. These Andean girls would otherwise have little or no opportunity for education and most probably would continue in the cycle of poverty and abuse which plagues their mothers. I have made 6 trips to Cusco, Peru and have observed first hand all aspects of the school and the girls it serves. Under the tutelage of Ruth, the Peruvian Director and the teachers she directs, the girl's education not only incorporates academic standards but also stresses personal values, integrity, self esteem and responsibility. Presently I am on the Board of Directors and can assure you that all donations go directly to support the school. Betty Woods
