Over 90% of the families in this remote, impoverished, racially charged area are unemployed and without an income. One of our teachers is feeding twelve people in her small home and is thankful that Kids Alive has continued to pay staff their salaries at this time. Park School has partnered with two other nonprofits to provide weekly food rations for all households in the community, which include the 120 Kids Alive families.

School director Alberto meets weekly with the six other Kids Alive school directors to plan, share successes and ideas, discuss spiritual and emotional care, and look forward to next fall.
