Hopi Kids Learning Enrichment Supplies for Shungopavi Youth

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 about 110 covid cases as of July 29. 

Gatherings are not allowed. School this fall will most likely be by remote learning.  Hopi families welcome in-home learning enrichment.

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.

Other Potential Support: Library and Lap Tops 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. Support for a library for the village could be of benefit to the community.

The village now as a Wifi hub to support remote learning and we are inquiring if all the youth have needed laptops.
