Wayland residents return to Peru with Hatun Runa

For over a decade Hatun Runa has been working in remote villages in the Northeastern Andes of Peru. These forgotten villages are thousands of miles from the crowds and tourists in Cuzco and Machu Picchu. With limited or no health care, clean water, sanitation, electricity or educational materials, everyday life is a struggle. We focus our efforts on providing medical and educational resources and necessities to these communities by providing solar power for their health posts and schools, as well as critical medical equipment, educational supplies and training.

WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO?

This summer our intrepid crew of volunteers from Massachusetts, Colorado, and Germany will join our amazing team in Peru. We will be revisiting the village of Chilchos – accessible only by a 26-mile hike on a narrow trail, crossing over high altitude and slogging through knee-high mud. We will be delivering school supplies and monitoring the construction of a new school which we started funding last summer. We will also perform maintenance on the solar system that was previously installed at the health post.

All of our volunteers pay for all of their travel expenses. 100% of your donation goes to our projects.

Please consider a donation here https://www.gofundme.com/hatun-runa-2019 – every dollar makes a big difference!

Where the road ends, Hatun Runa’s work begins. Visit our website at www.hatunruna.org

Wayland Wizards Destination Imagination Team seeks donations to go to global finals

The Wayland Wizards would greatly appreciate your support for this group of children embracing STEM concepts within a creative, team based program as they compete representing Massachusetts in the global Destination Imagination finals.

The Destination Imagination program encourages teams of learners to have fun, take risks, focus and frame challenges while incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), the arts and service learning. All of the programs are project based, teaching the creative process from imagination to Innovation.

The members of Wayland’s Middle School Team, the Wayland Wizards, chose to solve the Scientific Challenge “Medical Mystery” which required them to
create a story about their character and their solution and design and build all the props needed to present an eight minute solution to tell the story they created.

Starting in October, the team has worked together every week right up until the regional competition. On March 16th, at the regional competition, they achieved 1st place competing against 16 local towns. On March 30th, at the State Competition (competing against 15 regions), their performance earned them again 1st place and a spots at the Global Final’s competition which will be held in Kansas City MO, from May 22 – 26.

While this team has worked extremely hard and is eager to present their efforts at the Global Finals, they can’t do that without your financial support. They are looking to raise money to help defer the cost of this trip. The cost is $1,600 per child for registration and travel, for a total cost of $8,000 to get the team to the championship.

Any support you are able to provide would be greatly appreciated and go a long way to support the ongoing pursuit of STEM-based, creative educational excellence among Massachusetts kids.
