I have been waiting a while for these photos & look! It was well worth the wait. Now ALL 376 children are receiving their free soya milk thanks to this amazing machine bought last year by Educateperu. 2 soles (about 40p) buys 1kg of soya beans and 5kgs produces enough of this high-protein milk for the whole school per day. Now we are also making it for other nearby schools, to help them whilst providing our pupils’ milk for free.
We have increased the numbers of pupils year on year, despite the unhelpfulness of the government regarding the teachers’ pay. This does of course mean that the number of children in need of help via our godparenting scheme is also increasing. If you would like to know more about this scheme, please look on the website www.educateperu.org, print off a form and send it to me or alternatively contact me and I will explain it to you.
Thank you to every single person who has ever donated – every penny is well spent, with the focus entirely on the children’s education & their well-being.
