This month, for the 2nd year in a row, 12 students and 3 teachers from Aiglon College, Switzerland travelled to Peru, to complete a service project within our community. Their help included teaching the local children in the Yurac Yacu Early Childhood Program, painting a mural and constructing a playground for the children. They also got to experience the local culture with a welcoming Pachamanca meal, prepared by the local neighbors.
They also had the pleasure of a 3 day hike into the Quebrada Quilcahunca (supported by local guides,cooks and arrieros), helping with the recycling and a winning last day football match ( they were called Queso Swisso).
Their presence here was greatly welcome and thier efforts appreciated. The year of collecting funds as a donation was successful and the money will help to equip the computer and library area. We all look forward to their return in 2012.
