Sembrando Esperanza/Planting Hope opens in La Colonia

Sembrando Esperanza/Planting Hope (SEPH) recently opened to provide academic and personal enrichment for the children of La Colonia in Oxnard.   SND Associate and SEPH volunteer, Annabelle Gordon, had these early observations:  “SEPH has been operational for only a few days, but the response from the kids has been heart-warming.  Several of the young ones shared with me how much they enjoyed our program. “It’s so much fun! Going home is so BORING! There’s nothing to do but watch TV.”  They especially like to read.  Edgar and Julia like to read aloud to me and, as reading is a special love of mine, I fully encourage that activity.”   The photo shows SEPH volunteer Liz Loll explaining some geography to the participants…
