Give Hope

Valentine’s Day

In Guatemala in February we celebrate the day of love and friendship. Valentine’s Day or “Dia del Cariño” is a celebration with gifts, food, and many more things. In Love Guatemala, we celebrated today! This day was a time to share in each classroom, eat, open gifts and to bring closer together all the students.

Cooking school spent their time cooking their own food to be able to share together. They also exchanged gifts, played games and had a lot of fun. Art School they have started with a soccer game then watched a movie. The morning classes ended with a delicious lunch. 

In the afternoon, the Literacy Program played many games and exchanged their gifts from their “secret friend”. English also exchanged gifts, but instead of games, they were able to spend time watching a movie together.

It was a wonderful time to enjoy this day together and have fun!
