New School Program
Gato, pictured inside of his closet, is part of a new program being implemented at Colegio Shalom this year. For the many kids who are behind in their education, due to learning disabilities or to not having attended school prior to living at the orphanage, the school is implementing a government-sponsored program to help them advance more quickly through their studies. With specialized classes and tutoring, the students will complete 2 grades per year, allowing them to catch up to where they are supposed to be, educationally. We are excited that around 12 kids from the orphanage are getting the chance to participate in this beneficial program.
