The school year in Honduras runs February to November, giving students December and January for winter break (roughly equivalent to our summer break in the United States).
During this time, AFE students spend time with their families, hang out at home, and some work...either in the garbage dump or at paper factories, sorting paper. AFE teachers use the time for lesson planning for the year.
Thus, AFE's blog will remain quiet in January...but look forward to more exciting stories and updates in February! Also, if you have emailed your sponsor child, you will not hear back from him or her until mid-February (since AFE's computer lab is also closed this month).
