“This school has been supported in its
continuing improvement by funds raised by friends and family of Katie
Ashbridge. Katie was a well-loved
volunteer with Quest Overseas in 2000, and donations continue to be made in her
As a thank you for all the support over the years from Katie’s
friends and family in Villa Maria, the above plaque has been put up inside the Quest
Below is a video from project director Alejandro and some of the Villa Maria children:
The school has recently
expanded, with some finishing work to be done on the classrooms still
remaining, for which we are fundraising. The work will be finished in plenty of time for the new school year in March 2012, when the intake will go from 110 children to 180 children up to the age of eleven.
Brilliant news. Thanks to everyone for their support.
