beginning at mantay!
January 2013 was wonderful! I started volunteering at Mantay! We did art with the kids during summer break while the Moms got to do yoga. Each Tuesday and Thursday I'd come up with an art project and we'd do it with the kids. Kids and Art? That was way out of my comfort zone but I had a lot of fun doing it! The last class before the kids went back to school, there was a little party. They had gifts for us, made by the Moms! Once the kids were back in school we started giving Reiki to the Mamis. They had become got bored of Yoga each week....and when they wanted a change from Reiki, I started teaching English, Tai Chi and Karate. In September I stepped down from co-ordinating the Mantay project to move to Urubamba full time. Unfortunately there was no one to take my place but still they have lots of volunteers from other organizations. I do miss them all!
