New Kindergarten in Honduras: More Pictures

Here are a few more photos of the inauguration of the new kindergarten facility in Vida Nueva, San Pedro Sula, Honduras, that was built by Children International thanks to a generous donation from Griswold Industries. This project was a great example of collaboration: the community donated the property, Children International and its donor built the facility and the government of Honduras provided the teacher.

Congratulations to all who worked hard to make this happen!

Children and parents gathered to kick off the grand event.

With over 130 students, Pamela, our new teacher, is going to have her hands full!

My sponsored child is part of the San Pedro Sula, Honduras Project and is of Kindergarten age. She started attending school not too long ago so I wonder if she'll be going to this Kindergarten. Is the San Pedro Sula project area so large that there is only a slim chance that she is going to this school? Now I'm going to have to look at the photos again to see if any of the little girls look like Ana.
