NEWS FROM PARAGUAY OCTOBER 2013
These were taken earlier at a school that caters for the children
of mainly Indigenous Indians that have drifted in from the wilder parts of Paraguay.
Most are from families living on and from the various surrounding municipal rubbish
dumps. The head teacher Don Mario....the big guy at the back of the group photo is
excellent. Many of the children don't speak Spanish but one of various native dialects. Mario seems to communicate well with them all.
The government gives very little support and teachers often go months without pay.
I unfortunately hit upon meal time.....you see some of the girls carrying soup....made
in a huge pot on a small gas ring in Mario's tiny office.....to the classrooms where meals are take. The food is donated by shops/stores/churches locally. ....so we had a group photo of St G's donations and left......leaving a lot more clothes for Mario to distribute later. I don't normally leave things for others to distribute but Mario is reasonably honest. Also tennis balls and boxes of Barclay's biros.
These people are really at the bottom of life's pile. Their and my thanks to you for pitching in to help.......
Best wishes Graham
