Donating School Supplies in San Lorenzo, Bolivia

Donating School Supplies in San Lorenzo, Bolivia

In December 2011 we received a request from a teacher who works at a school in San Lorenzo, Bolivia. Profesor Nahir Justiniano de Ticona asked if we could help supply them with the most basic items – pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, markers, books – which are in great need:

The children only have one notebook. What we teachers do is have them write everything in pencil and when all twenty or fifty pages of their notebooks are full – that’s ALL they get ALL YEAR – we begin to erase the first page and they write there, then the second page, and so on. We do this so they’ll have somewhere to write, because if they didn’t, they wouldn’t have anywhere to do it.

Recently Mano a Mano made a donation of school supplies to his school.
