Elohim School Description
The Elohim school is in a small young town surrounded by foothills and volcanos of Areqipa, Peru. The people in the town are immigrants from deep in Arequipa whom were forced to migrate from the lack of natural life resources such as water, food, shelter, and electricity. These people are 'campesinos' and many whom spanish is their second language. Their first language is Quechua, which is an ancient peruvian language not spoken by many anymore. Therefore, many of the students in Elohim School have Spanish as their second language and struggle to do regular school work. The Elohim School teaches to children from kindergarden to 6th grade all the required subject by the National Peruvian curriculum and also the aspects of hygine, care of the enviroment and christianity. Since the school is located in a struggling area, it lacks regular needs. For example, the school offers breakfast and lunch for the students and many times it's the only food the students eat in a day. Their kitchen is in very poor condition and very small, yet they cook for all the students everyday. This is the school that will be helped.
