On July 16th, the children came to school with sneakers and name tags on and with a water bottle and snack placed in their backpacks, ready for the field trip to the zoo. They had been spending the last several weeks learning about a variety of wild animals, and now they were going to have a chance to see those animals in person!

At the end of June, the participants in the WEP went up into one of the hills surrounding San Salvador for a retreat.   We turned off our cell phones to tune into the peace and tranquility of the natural world. This retreat offered the women the opportunity to reflect individually and collectively on their inner-selves and their inter-personal relationships.

Kids walking in the sand

The 3-year olds get a "feet-on" lesson about different natural envirnoments, taking their shoes off to get a sense of the texture of the different surfaces we walk on.
