The new class of 2013-2014 Starfish Scholars has been selected – with many familiar faces, and a few new ones! Once again we will be working in the 2 neighborhoods of Guasmo and Flor de Bastion. Stay tuned in the coming weeks to meet our new scholars!
We look forward to working with them in the 2013-2014 school year, however this year the President of Ecuador has decided to start school one month later – in May – to accomodate the many schools that often open late due to flooding in the rainy season.
Want to learn more about rainy season? Check out this picture I took last year and for our spanish readers – read how many parts of Guayaquil have been declared in a state of emergency of last Saturday’s torrential rains.
