From Lottie (Carlota) Ericson, April 3, 2012:

It’s my last evening in San Antonio. I sit on my bed with papers in one hand and scissors in the other. I am making holes in these papers one at a time. Why?  Well, the stationary store here sells three-hole binders and two-hole punches.  I think I am going to give myself a break from this job as I feel it’s time to jot down a few things about my five weeks here.

Latest blog from Guatemala by Jacqueline Mealing
[Note: As well as the community centre in the pueblo of San Antonio, Jacqueline has been working very hard to help a determined group of women in the nearby hamlet of La Cruz start a small community centre. These are extremely poor women, and the community centre gives them the opportunity to learn new skills, as well as to organize together.]

Centro Qawinaq – The San Antonio Community Centre

It’s school holidays in Guatemala, and Centro Qawinaq, the little community centre supported by ICO, is hard at work running a vacation program for the children. In a town where most homes are small, dark, and lacking paper, pencils, books or games, a vacation program is important for children to keep up the skills they have learned in school.
