earlier this week our friend Rita and I headed out on an exciting mission.
as you know if you've been following along the blog, we've been working in the area of San Lucas the last few months building connections and relationships with the community.
we've partnered with an after school program in the area to offer support services to the kids who are a part of their program. we are starting to offer weekly group meetings with women in the area and starting this week we are having our FIRST meeting! I am thrilled, I live for this stuff.
to give a snapshot, most of the women in this area are either single moms, or raising their (numerous) kids without support. around 60% never got the chance to study, and aren't able to read or write, but are serious about doing what it takes to support their kids for better.
so we're stepping in and providing this group as a little respite from the demands and business of every day. Rita and I got crafty and made some invitations (please don't judge them - we were pressed for time :)) and delivered flowers and invites to some ladies! we are so excited for our first group this week, we can't wait to let you know how it goes. think of us on Friday as we have our first meeting and send some love our way. enjoy the pictures below of inviting some of the women!
hope you are all having a great week, we'll check back in soon!
