NEWS: Here at La Choza Chula one of our main initiatives is to bring quality, long-lasting educational resources into El Paredón and surrounding communities. We know that to be sustainable, we must listen and respond to the needs of people born and raised in these areas and equip them to make lasting change in the long run.
A great example of that is our Buena Vista Library, run by 3 local librarians, where we offer additional educational resources that focus on the arts and environmental awareness. Also, we have recently begun the implementation of our brand new Literacy Program in the primary school that brings a more amplified focus on reading and writing competency. With that being said, we want to say happy international day of poetry to all of our friends here and around the world! ••• NOTICIA: En La Choza Chula, uno de nuestros enfoques principales es traer recursos educativos que sean duraderos y de alta calidad a El Paredón y las comunidades vecinas. Sabemos que para ser sostenibles, necesitamos escuchar y responder a las necesidades de la gente que ha nacido y crecido aquí y equiparles para hacer cambio sólido también a largo plazo.
Un gran ejemplo de esto es nuestra Biblioteca Buena Vista, gestionada por 3 bibliotecarios locales, donde ofrecemos recursos educativos adicionales con especial enfoque en las artes y el medio ambiente. Así mismo recién empezamos la implementación de nuestro Programa de Alfabetización en la escuela primaria que trae un enfoque más amplio en la capacidad de la lectura y escritura.
Dicho esto, queremos celebrar el día internacional de la poesía con todos nuestros amigos aquí y en todas las partes del mundo!
I was really lucky to get to spend my birthday morning hiking in a uniquely beautiful spot in Guatemala, on the edge of Lake Atitlán. I wasn’t sure anyone would join me but I ended up going with a group of such strong, inspiring women who are part of the intense writing workshop I’m attending. I got to have lunch with an author for whom I have great respect. And I hope to get some gelato in town with my mom tonight before sitting with the other women and reading our stories. Things haven’t been easy lately but I know that I have a lot to look forward to and a lot to be thankful for. Here’s to a quarter century! •

For my God is with me and goes before me. I do not fear because I am His.
