The KKIS Project has been practicing Conversational English with classes at CECYTE high school for the past year and I have become good friends with Karla Hernandez, the English teacher. Her son, Mauricio, recently graduated 6th Grade and last week began school at the middle school for taxi drivers in Playa del Carmen. This is a private school but the students are not wealthy, the taxi union is very strong and believes in helping their kids.
Mauricio loves music and the new school has one of the very few marching bands in all of Mexico – but they need instruments. Does anyone have a connection to a band, a string band, a university or music school that could donate used instruments? If we get together a group of instruments, Karla will appeal to the Mexican government for shipping charges.
