Guests from Peru report on the development of the girls' school in Arequipa during their visit to Lauchringen
Sister Nancy from the Arequipa girls' school visits members of the St. Verena partnership in Lauchringen. The junior high school in Waldshut donates steadily for the project.
The head of the Arequipa girls' school in Peru, Sister Nancy, stayed with two students for a few days at the St. Verena partnership in Lauchringen and Tiengen. The evening of encounters between the visitors and members of the Perupartnership took place in the parish hall of Unterlauchringen.

After a joint service, the Chairman of the Perupartnership, Karl Selbach, welcomed around 30 members of the Lauchringer Perupartnership in addition to the visitors from Peru. After a snack, the 15-year-old students Akerly Rodriguez and Alisson Torres showed a typical dance from Arequipa, accompanied by video documentation from their home country. Sister Nancy runs the girls' school in Arequipa with her brother Giancarlo Arratia. She reported with a picture documentation about the events and developments in Arequipa. She particularly emphasized the special celebrations and celebrations, but also the work and development of the girls' school.
The two students showed a typical dance from Arequipa, since they both come from this place and attend the girls' school there. When asked about their impressions of their first visit to Germany, they said that they had learned a lot of useful things. Subsequently, the former principal of the Robert Schumann Realschule Waldshut, Johann Albicker, on behalf of the sick headmistress, made a donation of 1000 euros as part of the long-term and still ongoing support of the girls' school. Visibly touched, Sister Nancy thanked her and explained that this would enable many things in school that could not otherwise be achieved.
The school is sponsored by the Canadian Order Jesus Maria. Sister Nancy, who previously lived in Pamplona Alta, the partner community of the Peru Circle of Friends, has taken over the management of the school with her brother since 2013. With the support of the Robert Schumann Realschule Waldshut and the Perupartnership St. Verena, a new school building has now been built and important furnishings have been procured. The school currently houses 194 girls from the Arequipa area, where women are extremely disadvantaged. 25 teachers not only impart knowledge, they also strengthen self-esteem and convey social values.
