Pimp my classroom
Volunteers from American Universtiy, and George Washington University worked in the mountians for El Progreso in the neighborhood Juan Ramon this week at the elementry school to create an empowering mural that will inspire the youth. Youth in this community face poverty, drug trafficing, violence, gangs and more. But with efforts like this elementry school, where 3 of the 4 teachers are not paid, they will have access to education. We were honored to support their fight and inspire the community.
The mural says, "Somos la esperanze de Nuestro pais" or "We are the hope for our Country."
Check back later to hear more from the American Universtiy volunteers and all their adventures this week!
