During the months of January and February we completed the 4th iteration of the Backpack Project. Without a doubt this has been the most exciting and rewarding year of the project. Briefly this is what together we have accomplished with your help, your donations, and the volunteers throughout Peru that have volunteered their effort, time and energy –
Project by the Numbers:
- 1,010 Backpacks Provided
- 5,050 Snacks provided during the week of classes
- Over 230 volunteers gave well over 1,150 hours of their time for the Project
- Thousand of smiles and encouragement for both children and volunteers
Currently, we are in the process of going over all the evaluations and filling out reports. This years project has also given us clues on how we can improve and expand for next year. Thank you again for your support and please continue supporting Umbrella Initiatives.
This past year we operated the project in the following communities throughout Peru:
