Those of you who have visited or read about Colegio Esperanza know that it is a huge blessing to the dump community of La Chureca. We have around 300 students who recieve their full education, two meals a day and lots of extracurricular activity all for free. It is a place of much hope for the kids and a place where God moves greatly in the lives of the children of La Chureca.
We will have many visitors this summer, so we wanted to share some needs of the school. If any of you will be visiting and want to bring them down or would like to help buy these items, here is the list that we got yesterday from Sheyla Marenco who is our school director. Thank you in advanced!
