Park School and Care Center is located in the town of Caraballo and is a refuge for more than 200 children and youth. Our basic education program, which has served preschoolers through 5th grade, received approval from the government this year to expand to 6th grade, allowing us more time with our students. We are expanding our reading initiatives in a vigorous effort to foster a life-long love of reading among our kids. And we are now offering regular dental care for all students. read more »
Daria* was born with very poor eyesight and is now legally blind. Life is hard enough for an average child in this impoverished community, and disability only makes it harder. Attending the Park School is such a blessing for her, as she has been embraced and accepted. She benefits in many ways from the holistic care and has formed great relationships with her classmates and her teachers.
Intelligent, extroverted, and affectionate, Daria doesn’t let her struggles hold her back, and she is already learning to use a Braille machine we recently obtained. She says she wants to go to university one day and study to become an elementary teacher. We’re confident that she will reach her goals and make a difference in her family and community, and will serve as an example for kids who start out with so many disadvantages and need someone to walk the long road to independence with them!
