Review for Chicuchas Wasi, Forestville, CA, USA
I have been indirectly involved with Chicuchas Wasi for several years, having a close friend who has traveled there and sharing her times there. Through the stories and experiences of her visits, coupled with the material learned from the Chicuchas Wasi web site, I have become aware of the important work this school is carrying out among underprivileged and impoverished girls.
I receive regular communications from the school, and it’s through these e-mails that I am made clear on the effectiveness of its mission. I am learning that there is close interaction of teachers and administrative personnel with the girls. Teachers have the necessary supplies to work with, and the school provides appropriate materials enabling the teachers to do their work. There are course programs, and the topics covered are quite appropriate for the children's age.
It is clear to me that the goal for this school is for the education of its girls. Education will enable them to move out of their impoverished circumstances and have an impact in and on their community. Because these are the goals of learning I personally believe in, I have since become a passionate and enthusiastic supporter of the mission of Chicuchas Wasi.
Thank you for this thoughtful review and accurate account of what our mission is- education for girls unable to go to school otherwise and destined to a life of poverty without knowing how to read, write and do basic math. Thank you
