Winding up the 2018 school year

Posted November 23, 2018 @ 7:06pm | by Comunidad

I always feel so grateful to have the opportunity to spend time in a few of the communities we’ve worked in. Over Thanksgiving, it was Patahuasi and Corozón de Ñaupaus. These two hamlets, high up in the Andes, have alot to be proud of. Patahuasi has it’s first high school graduating class of 8. First time ever! We were able to upgrade their classrooms this year, add a library, and provide a hearty lunch. I saw a big difference in their energy level...

Patawasi Progress

Posted June 19, 2018 @ 12:29pm | by Comunidad

Patawasi ProgressAt the end of the year we posted about a family who traveled to Peru with ArtAndes three years ago, and the fact that they had generously set up a fund in Comunidad’s name with the request “to ask that whatever is decided is sustainable or jump starts an initiative that has that capability”.We were able to focus on the rural and impoverished area of Patawasi. A community that did not appear to be on the governments radar for any education improvements that were...

Happy Holidays from Comunidad

Posted November 28, 2017 @ 7:14pm | by Comunidad

Happy Holidays,A USAID operative in Lima, Peru, told Comunidad not long ago that we’ve made more of an impact at a grassroots level relatively speaking, than the US government could accomplish in the Comunidad communities, mired in all its red tape and bureaucracy. This is because of all of you.As a valued Comunidad friend and donor, we wanted to provide you with an end of year update. As you may recall, we’ve been winding down support of our projects in Peru....

Ready for use!

Posted October 31, 2017 @ 11:48am | by Comunidad

I can’t wait to use the bathroom in Patawasi!!! I’m heading there to check it out mid November, after I finish my Cusco Valley Hiking Trip. As Fundacíon Comunidad focuses more on ‘funding a need’ and moves out of the daily education involvement of the past 15 years, each project needs to be carefully monitored to fund raise accordingly. We think this turned out well for Patawasi’s residents. I will report back after I flush.The ongoing support from...

Time for TP!

Posted September 26, 2017 @ 7:49pm | by Comunidad

Time for TP!With the generous support of Comunidad’s donors, Patawasi is getting an upgraded bathroom. This community is the furthest and most isolated of the six communities near Paccha, that we have worked in. Assisting both their pre-school and high-school has produced notable results in their academic status. The Lunch supplements are well consumed and that’s all good, but we’ve been very concerned about their sanitary conditions for some time. SO, an e-mail fundraiser went out and...

Road trip to Paccha

Posted January 16, 2017 @ 10:50am | by Comunidad

It’s always a full experience when going to Paccha and beyond. Sister Jessie and I were pleased to see the Paccha High School completed as well as the new Chaquipampa High School (named after Comunidad founder Padre Walter Ebertz) School doesn’t start again until March, at that time we will know what futher education roles the government will assume and what part we will continue with. We will continue with providing school lunch for most either as a soya...
