NORTH TEXAS KICKOFF
The Hope for Morrope Foundation has three new Board Members! Vito Piazza Jr., Kate Piazza, and Meghan Burlager have joined the organization, and want to make sure their friends and family are familiar with the work of Hope for Morrope. To do this, they are hosting a kickoff event on Saturday, October 12th at the home of Vito and Kate Piazza! This event will introduce the Hope for Morrope Foundation to the North Texas area, and serve as a fundraiser to help create a computer lab at the school in Mórrope, Perú.
If you would like to attend, please reach out to Vito and Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are unable to attend, but still wish to contribute to their first fundraiser, click on the button below to donate! We look forward to bring the Hope for Morrope Foundation to North Texas!
Dear friends of Mórrope we are happy to report that on May 23rd 2017 Vito and I traveled to Mórrope for the dedication and Blessing of the second floor of our school building. (Please access our gallery of photo’s to view the pictures) It was an amazing trip! After recovering from the El Niño flooding, through you generous support we were able to complete the second floor of our building. However there is much to be done. The school must be repainted; teaching materials are desperately needed, most importantly, because of the expansion to the second floor we are in need of student and teacher desks as well as white boards. We are happy to report that we have installed Wi-Fi in the building so that the students can access the most recent learning materials. Finally, because of the expansion we are in desperate need of five new computers and monitors.
On another very positive note, in 2017 we hired a past student Carlos Omar Guerrero Bances to be our school administrator and he has done an extraordinary job! Especially with the repairs after El Niño and the completion of the school building.
During our trip our administrator Omar introduced us to a Canadian NGO representative, Andre Pino, who was interested in using our building for outreach classes to the Mórrope community.
As such, in May of 2017, the Foundation signed an agreement with the NGO (Non-Government Organization) from Canada.
Their mission is to educate young people on how to become an entrepreneur’s, leading to starting micro- businesses,
Included in the training are classes in public speaking, independent thinking and how to be an organizer. The first class has successfully ended with all the students obtaining a certificate of completion. A new class will start in May 2018.
Friends, the Foundation’s work it’s not finished yet.
Vito and I are currently planning a fundraising event in the month of October and hoping it will be a success. Stay Tuned!!!
We hope you will join us in support of our capital building fund. This supports outfitting classrooms with furniture, repairing and painting the school after the floods of 2017, and looking forward to the creation of a computer lab.
Our Goal: $125,000
Thank you to our 2018 Sponsors.
