We are beyond thrilled to announce that some of the JKL students from EAC Prep in Austin will be working with Peruvian Hearts, a non-profit organization founded by Ana Dodson. She was born in a small, poor village in Cuzco and adopted when she was an infant. She visited Cuzco when she was older and witnessed the poverty and lack of education that plagues Peru, especially among women. As a result she decided to take action!
Our JKL students will be spending ten days in Cuzco, working with the many different projects that Peruvian Hearts sponsors for women and their families, including a Women’s Empowerment group made up of teenagers the same age as our students. We are so excited to see what our students make of this experience and it is our hope that it opens up their hearts and mind to their own possibilities and potential to help make this world a better place, filling it with gratitude and service.
