Let's take a look at a few highlights...
The lovely kids of Alto da Esperança saying HI with Fr. Francis Therese and Br. John Paul, a new added member to the team!
We have incorporated story time and reading traditional folk tales of Brazil. Although it has been a challege at times it is a great way to encourage their imagination and interest in the world of books.

We've also added a class that encourages the kids to problem-solving and building while still having fun! Here we had a project with straws and tape to construct geomotrical shapes.

In another class sparking their creative thinking by building a castle fort!
Good job team!
Gabriel has returned from his mission trip in Mexico and is helping out again in Alto by teaching music classes and building puzzles with the kids. Thank you Gabriel! We love you!
We had the opportunity to take the kids on a field trip to the Sacred Art Museum of Bahia. By exposing the children to beauty of the Church we hope to open their eyes to a world outside of the favela.
. Unfortunately we couldn't take pictures inside the museum since it is not allowed but here are a couple of picturea from online so you can get an idea :)
Here we are waiting at the eterance of the museum explaining the "Do's and Don'ts" when we are inside.
