ABLE Trip to Peru

Several times over the past eight years, the ABLE (Adventure Based Learning Experience ) courses at Delaware Valley Friends School have offered an adventure education trip to Peru. As part of the trip, students grades 9-12 have done service projects in the village of Maras . We have funded and built two greenhouses and painted a school classroom.

In March 2018 our ABLE program will return to Maras to see the fruits of the labor of previous groups and to continue our support of Maras. Our goal this year is to fill the two greenhouses with a supply of seedlings to help the women of Maras grow another season of new trees and fresh vegetables. We will also be painting another classroom in the school.

The work will take place on March 24, 2018, as part of our service and learning trip to Peru. We will share photos from the trip and from our service activity here on the ABLE Blog.

We would like to raise $500 by March 20, 2018 to help fund the purchase of the seedlings for two greenhouses and for the paint and supplies needed for painting the classroom. If you would like to help us reach our goal, please go to our GoFundMe campaign. We are grateful for any support you can give to help us fund this project!

PLEASE NOTE: This campaign is not raising funds for Delaware Valley Friends School, and donations are not tax deductible. This is a short-term student-led project of the ABLE Program. Checks are also accepted, made out to DVFS with a notation "ABLE Maras Fund" and turned in or mailed to Ken Sinapius c/o Delaware Valley Friends School, 19 East Central Avenue, Paoli, PA 19301.
