Día del Niño Celebrations

In the week leading up to Día del Niño, the official Mexican holiday celebrating children, each of the schools we work with had incredible fiestas to celebrate the holiday dedicated to its students. Our staff and volunteers were invited to attend these events and partook in the festivities. Principals and teachers had planned games and competitions with prizes, organized special lunches with cakes big enough for the whole school to share for dessert, and one school even had a giant water slide! We feel so fortunate to work with these children on a daily basis and were so happy to share in their joy as they celebrated just being themselves.
