Thilda Zorn has operated a day care facility in Santa Cruz La Laguna, Guatemala for over 25 years caring for and educating native Mayan children. This month Thilda has begun welcoming mothers and 3 year-old children to gentle beginnings in Waldorf education.
She is also educating young Mayan women to become teachers in her newly opened kindergarten. These children are essentially shut off from early childhood education opportunities due to the remote location and economically depressed nature of the community.
A major fundraising effort initiated by the local Mayan women is the making and selling of beadware. The women of Santa Cruz are talented in their handicrafts and use these talents to earn money for their families and for Casa Milagro.
Beaded jewelry will be for sale after church on Sunday,January 29th.
