The Cusco community has in many ways shown it’s support of the Chicuchas Wasi school, especially since our new school opened in 2013. We appreciate their help and share below is a list as of May 2016.
Dr. Hyber Luna, Dentist
Dental chair above donated by Dr. Hyber Luna
The dental exams and restoration were sponsored by Efrain Valles Morales, APEX Peru Adventure, Cusco Tour company in 2015. All of our students saw the dentist for the first time in 2014 and were treated and instructed on good oral hygiene. Efrain Valles Morales, a part of CW for 30 years and active CW board member today sponsored this program for the school 2015 year. Since then we Covid and other financial hurdles put this project on hold. Since then we only sporadically bring the dentist to the school for dental checkups.

With obligatory attendance at the meetings of their daughter’s school, parents realize they are an importence influence in the success of the school and their daughters progress in education. Here the painting of the worn doors of each classroom needed some maintenance and parents organized themselves to paint them.
Our parents often dress in their traditional costumes and proudly dance for their daughter’s school and in this case for the CW 30th Anniversary.
