FULL FUNDING THROUGH MARCH 2021:
NEED #1: FUNDING FOR NUTRITION - $7,201
During the COVID-19 world-wide pandemic, many families have lost significant amounts of income. Tourism is the main economic segment in Sololá, and without national and international travel, many parents have lost their jobs, or have reduced income. To help families avoid malnourishment, Transformacion Ballet has been providing food to many dance families. We need additional funding to continue providing food to families in the coming months. $53 USD is enough to provide food basics to one family for a month.
NEED #2: PROVIDING DANCE CLASSES & ACADEMICS - $12,760
Due to the current economic situation, we have provided free dance classes to our students for the past 4 months. As there is no sign of economic improvement, our goal is to have sufficient funding to continue to provide free classes to our students through to March 2021. As many schools have paused, we are also offering English classes to keep minds active! In order to provide free classes and keep Transformación Ballet running, we need funding to cover teaching hours, programming, dance wear, and associated fees (such as our Zoom subscription, and eventually costs of transportation to and from dance class).
NEED #3: STUDENT INTERNET ACCESS - $728
With our classes and academic support currently being held over Zoom and Youtube, our students need internet access, a luxury that is not financially attainable for most families at this time. We need your help to continue to provide internet access to our students for the months to come.
Please keep us in your prayers. Thank you and God bless!
"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
