The Kuska Holiday Chocolatada was held in a small village near Iquitos on December 8th. It was sponsored by the Baylor Med-Peds Class of 2017 in addition to a few other donors. During this event we were able to hand out toys, chocolate, and clothing to about 50 children and their families! This is the second year in a row that we have been able to hold this event.
Kuska is excited to announce the graduation of our second student, Odilo! Thanks to all of the donors who helped support his education!
Kuska is excited to announce the graduation of our first student, Rose Marie! Rose Marie graduated with a degree in Laboratory Technology on Decemeber 20, 2013. Thanks to all of the donors who helped support her education!
Kuska volunteers helped to bring holiday cheer to many families living along one of the Amazon River tributaries on December 21, 2013 with the first annual Kuska Holiday Activity! This years event was sponsored by the Baylor Med-Peds Class of 2017.
Kuska held its first Peruvian fundraising event (a raffle) on August 31, 2013. The event was a success, raising over $700, which will help support our students who still do not have funding for September and October! We are so proud of our Peruvian team and students for putting the raffle together!
Eva and Kim traveled to Iquitos during February and March of 2013. Their tasks for the trip included meeting with the Kuska students, especially the two newest additions to the Kuska family, Jack and Francisco! For more information about those two, please see the student profiles page. All of our students are doing well, and the theme of the meeting actually became English lessons, because most of the students have become interested in learning English. As you can imagine, English is a wonderful skill to have for almost any job in Peru, because much of the technical literature is in English. We also discussed the opening of Kuska's new office (hopefully this will happen in July 2013, stay tuned!), an Internet cafe business model that our Business students are creating, and recruitment of students from the small villages outside Iquitos.
Kuska has been accepted at Yale's Unite for Sight Conference on April 13-14! For more information, click here: http://www.uniteforsight.org/conference/.
