Cultural Tour – Parent Child – Mother / Daughter Day 1 – Learning Spanish & Making Mats
The mothers and daughters got to start the day learning Spanish from some of our students. Then, the mother/daugther teams had a chance to experience life in the barrio.
Juan Jose and his family are contracted to make these mats and for each one they receive 25 cents, in a day they make 20 mats. We broke them up into two groups, and they had a litte contest to see who could make one the fastest (mothers against daughters). Everyone had a lot of fun and a lot of appreciation for Juan Jose and his Mom. A side note: In return for their time we will be setting them up so they can work for themselves instead of their neighbor, earning at least 30% more! Amazingly to do this it will cost $40.
