SCHOOL IN GUAYAQUIL
The school does not have the funds for desperately needed improvements. It lacks educational materials and even chairs and desks. Electric lights do not exist. The schoolyard is not paved - the rainy season brings mud and the summer brings dust. Thanks to the great willingness of those who donated, the walls between the classrooms were replaced with stone and a rain-proof roof was installed, reducing noise and creating a better teaching atmosphere. In addition, there there now eight student toilets with functioning flushing capabilities. However, there is still a shortage of books, blackboards and student desks. There are currently plans underway to offer health checks for the kids.
