Kids Learning Enrichment Support Needed
for Hopi Youth in the Village of Shungopavi
Shungopavi Village is under covid lock-down restrictions.
This village, the most traditional one at Hopi, has almost 1,000 people and has had 110 covid cases as of Oct. 19, 2020.
Gatherings are not allowed. School this fall is by remote learning. Hopi families welcome in-home learning enrichment.
Crossing Worlds Hopi Projects invites tax-deductible donations for Hopi kids learning enrichment for 330+ Shungopavi youth ages 3 to 18 during the coming school year. CWHP is communicating with the village administration on needs of the youth.
CWHP will deliver supplies bagged for each child at regular intervals throughout the school year to the Shungopavi Community Administration, who will safely distribute to all of the village school children.
The first delivery goal is August 20. And, with your help, there will also be an October and December delivery. We will continue into 2021 as donations allow.
Library for Hopi Youth in Shungopavi
Shungopavi Village has a goal to build a Youth Learning Center in a new modular building with the pandemic funding they are receiving. The Village used to have a library in their community building but it was water damaged.
The village now as a Wifi hub to support remote learning and we are inquiring if all the youth have needed laptops.
We are coordinating with Shungopavi Village to establish a library in a small building that is available now.
