Finishing up 2022…

And before we start gearing up for a magical 2023, we wanted to recap what was a fantastic year. Our education chapters in El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Colombia are still going strong with weekly classes, more local shows have ensued this year, and these shows have become a new source of income for our students; this is something that has us very happy.

Thank you to all donors and sponsors that made this possible, specially Daniel Giandoni one of the members of the great …
