Jane Fellows and her team of volunteers have been busy helping Kinder Schools in La Peñita since January 2011.
We are an independent, non-profit group of volunteers, whose primary goal is to assist Kinder Schools in La Peñita.
KinderAide was established in January of 2011, when Jane Fellows (visitor of 30 years) saw a poster at a local Kinder School asking for pencils, paper and a volunteer English teacher.
She naively volunteered, saw the shortage of school supples, and began fundraising.
In April of that year Jane was introduced, by a Mexican friend, to five other schools in need. She promised to teach at the least fortunate school when she returned in November.
She then advertised for school supplies and for a replacement teacher at her original school. To her surprise six women volunteered to teach and Kate Baron (permanent resident/retired school teacher) graciously offered to train and mentor the volunteer teachers.
Our goal is to help children in their quest to learn English, with the assistance of volunteer teachers and donated school supplies.
• ATTEND KinderAide fundraisers
• VOLUNTEER to be an English teacher - no experience needed - some Spanish is an asset
• DONATE crayons, paper of any kind (construction, photo copy), notebooks, white erasers, pencil sharpeners, rulers, blunt nosed scissors, glue sticks, stickers and any dollar store craft item you deem appropriate for 4 and 5 year olds
• CASH DONATIONS are always needed and appreciated
