The school year has started

Posted March 24, 2021 @ 7:59am | by Comunidad

Mid March is the start of the 2021 school year. As last year didn’t happen at all for many of our rural students, we are hopeful that this year will be productive. The communities in the Ayacucho district started with virtual classes until mid April when they will start 3 days a week in person class. Fundacion Comunidad’s role is extremely important as we continue our focus on providing nutritional lunches. A hearty and tasty lunch is another reason to make the long trek to class,...

The Non School Year of CovidThe school year in the Andes should have started mid March. It’s now eary Sept...they will have lost the academic year of 2020 by the time Dec comes. Having just spent time with many of the students last Nov, there was a-lot of excitement for their upcoming year.

A unique comunidad visit

Posted December 20, 2019 @ 6:15pm | by Comunidad

A unique comunidad visitSince 1999, most of the Ebertz family has been involved with the Comunidad projects, in some fashion. Perhaps only as indirect donors being children of my siblings, or as in the case with my nephew Vince, it was his first non-profit donation he ever made at the young age of 18, he had inherited $1000 from a relative and turned around and donated half of it. It was time for them to have a personal connection with the community members while we could, the stars...

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...
