A New School Year Begins

Finally after what seems like an endless summer the children of Conviven have started to show their little ever smiling faces, reports our new volunteer coordinator Bella.

English classes where meant to begin at Conviven 2 weeks ago but due to terrible down pours lasting over a week most of our classes where cancelled as where those of the main stream schools.

We now have 4 kids English classes running 3 afternoons a week along with classes for adults and teenagers. Some children will also be coming in the mornings as the children in Buenos Aires have school either in the mornings or afternoons and we want to give them all the chance to come to Conviven.

It s really nice for me to see the enthusiasm and energy the volunteers are putting into their classes and hearing the kids laughter through the closed doors makes all the hard work worth while.
