Piruw 2016 Year End Newsletter
Greetings Project Piruw Donors and Volunteers:
On this final day of 2016, I wanted to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude for the continued support, hard work and generosity we received from all of you as we achieved a number of goals to pave the way for a productive 2017 ahead.
First of all in Peru, we celebrated “groundbreaking day” at the daycare location site in August 2016 after we were given the land. The photo below was captured during the ceremony with my mother Victoria Marin participating with the local Priest and Government authorities:
Secondly, we officially became a tax-exempt organization approved by the IRS in November 2017 and finalizing similar tax-exempt status in Peru. This achievement will allow us to expand fundraising opportunities going forward opening new doors to partner with large well-established charitable foundations.
Our local volunteer architects in Peru finalized the blueprints for the day care and we can now focus efforts in Q1/2017 to bid out construction work and carefully select the right construction team to pour the foundation. In parallel, we have been advancing discussions with the local community in securing another acre of land near the daycare location for growing crops sustainably, as a means to provide healthy nutritious meals to the children that will be attending the daycare.
In order to raise sufficient funds to carry out construction efforts on the daycare, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting the 2nd annual Fashion Show Fundraiser in March 2017 at a fun location in Houston, TX!! Our fashion show “dream team” have been actively working to progress detailed planning in the last months, so we can’t wait to show you what we have in store for 2017! I look forward to meeting you all at this amazing event and expect to see further details and ticket info in the coming months.
Once again, THANK YOU for all your donations and support. We look forward to seeing you in March 2017 at Piruw’s second Fashion Show Fundraiser!
Happy New Year!
