There were a lot of reasons to celebrate as construction was completed at Maria Auxiliadora School just in time for the big opening celebration in which Happy Hearts Fund chairwoman Petra Nemcova and AFP Integra (ING Peru) President Jorge Ramos were present to mark the beginning of the activities at the new school.

The opening ceremony was a moment of joy for the community as they prepared a few activities including live music, traditional dancing and an offering of gifts for the visitors to welcome all participants to the event. The school’s community is very proud of their new home and feels that their building not only looks beautiful and welcoming, but will first and foremost improve the education of their children.
