After six weeks of being in Guatemala, our team’s work at Mayan Families finally, and sadly, comes to a close. This week the team wrapped up both of our projects. The computer integration plan that we have been working on since the start of our internship was presented to the Panajachel preschool teachers and the Mayan Families education department members. Afterwards we held a Q & A session with everyone in attendance. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive which was SO rewarding! We also completed our report on the Spanish language evaluations and presented that to members of the Education Department as well. Because the report involved a lot of tedious data entering and compilation, it felt great to finally be done! To top it all off, the Department threw us a surprise going away party with cake, coffee, and speeches! It was such a nice gesture and a perfect last day at work.
We leave for the airport at 6:30 a.m. tomorrow and all of us have so many mixed emotions about going home. We will be happy to see our families, but we’ve also created a life for out here in Pana…Words cannot describe what an amazing experience we have had and the memories we’ve made, the friendships we formed, the inspirational people we met, and everything we have seen will not soon be forgotten….
