NEWSLETTER MOUNTAINS OF LOVE 2019
THE CHILDREN THANK YOU AGAIN FOR A SUPPORTIVE ECUATIONAL AND FULFILLING YEAR
Introduction from Nolvia Griffith, born in Honduras, co-founder of Mountains of Love:
…it is so heartening to see many of you who share my passion in the service of these children from so many aspects of needs whether it is a parent or a hungry child, from a uniform to pair of shoes, to a medical need. I am humbled to see such a great service being achieved by a great foundation like MOL. If you ask me to talk about MOL, I can describe endless blessings that have been bestowed towards the needs of these children. By knowing their children are being fed everyday gives hope and expectation of the parents for a better future for their child. Happy tummy, happy child. As the chief operating officer of MOL my greatest hope is to continue the service of love that is bestowed by our supporters and donors whose open hearts have made possible with their contributions. May we continue to be blessed in this mission.
“THE DAYS THEY GO TO SCHOOL ARE THE DAYS THEY LOOK FORWARD TO”
Letter from the school principal Ana Luisa to Mountains of Love 10/19/19
…The fruits of your efforts received in the last 10 years are immense blessings for the children and their families. Your food program has benefited and improved the learning conditions of our students and may be the only nutritionally balanced meal our students receive. Your economic funds for medical needs and emergencies have improved the lives and conditions of students and sometimes their mothers. Your financing of the psychology department allows for diagnostics and psychological treatment of our kids, as well as orientation workshops for teachers and parents.
In the long term we wish to count on the invaluable support that you have given us. We are sure we are on the same path and views to see the best accomplishments in our children. We acknowledge the economic conditions worldwide are difficult and we value the effort of each of you to see your labor of love working. As an institution we would love to better our attention to service, we strive for better equipment in our workshops which allow better learning opportunities to our children and families.
October 2019 Mountains of Love has introduced an extra daily sewing program with 14 adults taking part
The guardians and mothers who previously have been sitting on the school benches outside whilst the children are in school are now offered sewing classes. Mountains of Love has procured 7 manual sewing machines, purchased 67 yds of fabric from a local shop, found a sewing teacher who now comes 4 days a week. Beautiful fabric has been donated and sent to Honduras by a local interior design firm, Slifer Designs. 20 pillows have been made – 8 sold so far. The profit is being applied to purchase more materials for the sewing class. One sewing machine will be presented to the most likely candidate to take home and start their own sewing business. We are very excited to see how this program evolves.
Food Program Guidelines:
Menus are mixed the following ways Monday through Friday. Cold cuts, chicken, beef, vegetable soup, pasta and rice, beans, tortillas and eggs.
