Review for Chicuchas Wasi, Forestville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was fortunate enough to visit the Chicuchas Wasi school in 2007 while traveling to Peru. My mother-in-law, Rae Lewis, is the founder of Chicuchas Wasi so I had heard about how she and Ruth Uribe started this organization and how it evolved to it's present day focus of helping young girls acquire necessary scholastic achievements to continue their education. During my visit in 2007, I witnessed first-hand how this program helps so many young girls. It was evident that the Chicuchas Wasi project not only values education, but the project also plays a critical role in giving an opportunity for a better life to young women. Seeing the girls smiling faces in the classroom, proud to show examples of their school work, and the genuine enthusiasm of the teachers, it is plain to see Chacuchas Wasi is a worthwhile cause and makes a difference in the lives of so many families.

Thank you Allison for your enthusiastic review of Chicuchas Wasi School for Girls. It was wonderful to share CWs 21 years of working to help the at-risk children of Cusco, Peru. Our students loved your visit and and interacting with you and Lenny (my son) -even the dancing. The students are not only experiencing huge leaps in their growth with education, they bring home to their siblings new skills to share, and with their family and community. Everybody wins..and it only grows more each day. I hope we make that trip again with Leo one day, so he can experience the joy with the little girls in the school.
