Our students could not travel to Oaxaca this summer, however they have been participating in a "virtual exchange" - getting to know the families they hope to exchange with in the summer of 2021, as well as learning about the culture, and becoming involved with community service for NGO's in our sister city. This fundraiser is brought to you by our students, in the hopes that our community can help an organization needing aid to continue to educate students safely during this difficult time. Please support Centro Calpulli with the purchase of masks, thermometers, disinfectant and other items in order to re-open in the coming year.
Centro Calpulli is a learning center and children’s rights advocate organization that is based in Oaxaca, Mexico. Established 26 years ago, it serves underprivileged kids in Oaxaca and is dedicated to offering children the chance to develop themselves in a violence free environment. It provides important programs including a library, which gives families free access to literature. It recently added a preschool, which teaches children many of their basic skills and is free childcare. Computer courses are offered to anyone who needs them and are an important building block for employment. The center also has traditional dance and other classes that both connect children to their culture, and build self confidence. Lastly, the center serves lunch to kids who attend, in their neighborhoods this lunch is often the only hot meal of the day.
