Girls in Guanabano

On Monday afternoons I go with Hector (who I affectionately call ‘mi tio’; my uncle) to a community outside of Tegus, called Guanabano. Hector teaches a class of Maths or Spanish for an hour and then we play games for the rest of the time. This is a bit of what we got up to yesterday…


The girls live in a very poor area and their houses are lucky when they have electricity or a TV. I asked them about their families and even though they are all between 8 and 11, their parents are all under 30 and they all have at least 3 brothers and sisters. They have huge families cramped into tiny houses made of really basic materials and hardly any amenities… I’m hoping to visit one of their houses soon as it will be really interesting, but sad, to see how they live. They are great girls though and I always look forward to seeing them on Mondays 🙂
