I know the TECH Freire project was truly a challenging and frustrating one – yet you hung in there for us. Whether it was the abysmally cold winter months, or the really tight budget, or any number of things, you never gave up, and kept at it with heart and gusto. And man! We are so grateful to you for doing so. TECH Freire was only a dream a couple years ago, and the fact that it now exists is sort of surreal for me. Yet it really does exist, for 300+ kids that are already speaking volumes about what a positive difference the school is making for their lives only one month into the school year.
