Celebrating Ojalá Niños with Art, Music, and Great Food!
By Elsmarie Norby
On Sunday, March 6, from 5—8pm, the children and staff of Ojalá Niños invite you to celebrate their achievements in several areas of arts and crafts that are becoming a way for them to grow in pride, confidence, and even earning ability. The proceeds from sales of the art go entirely to the children and their cooperatives.

Denver, the proprietor/chef of the Italian restaurant, Los Olivos, located at calle 20 de Enero Sur 44, is providing a beautiful gallery space for the exhibitions and offering delicious botanas with your choice of beverages.
Very special music will be offered by the duo of Tony DiNuzzo and Bunny Andrews DiNuzzo, whose vocals and instrumentals blend into sounds that enchant and transport the listener. The instruments—guitar, banjo, harmonica, flute, and harmonium—create a fascinating variety that make for an unforgettable musical experience.
Ojalá Niños, a nonprofit, provides a year-round daily free education program for over 100 indigenous children in the rural community of San Miguel Viejo. All children are welcome and all children are considered capable of achievement that will positively impact their future. We offer a place for learning along with materials, ideas, and guidance. We believe that any child who is offered the freedom to exercise curiosity will explore, discover, and become an educated person with the capacity to live cooperatively and search for peaceful solutions to problems. The program offers arts, music, literacy, health, environment, and social service in order to develop critical thinking skills, self-confidence, and a sustainable work ethic.
