Adopt a School
Fanny heard about Adopt a School on her trip to Iquitos (Peru) in october 2012. It's a charity that has been delivering school supplies to children in rural communities of the Amazon rainforest for 21 years. This year, they delivered to 55 communities which includes 150 schools and more than 3500 children.
We "adopted" the school of Mantí I Zona, a village on the Mantí River. There are 123 families, with a total population count of 458. There is a kindergarten with 32 children, a primary school with 80 students, a high school with 80 students. There are 9 teachers.
As a thank you, Association Léon recieved art from the kids of that community! Here are the drawings of Jens (5 years old) and Lesly Carolina (10 years old)
