Today our Employees or Program Leaders (the "Ayudantes") share with us a beautiful reflection about the beginning of the school year at our Flor de Bastión site...stay tuned next week for the Guasmo updates!
"Hi! Here we have a very friendly environment where some of our most important values include: respect, fellowship, humility and mutual cooperation between us and the students.
We have three groups during the week, and each one is different from the others. One of these groups is the group with the youngest students, which is also our most active group. Then we have our morning group which is a little quieter and always gives a 100% effort in their work, and lastly the second afternoon group which is a little more challenging to work with - some are quiet and others talk a lot, but all have dreams and goals to achieve!
We as employees and leaders always try to be patient and also to get to know each student better. We share our friendship and our knowledge with them. Even so, there are some things we are still working to improve, and every day we strive to be better. That's a little of what is going on at the foundation.
Jessica, Tyrone, María, Cecilia, Kevin & Jasmin"
