About Me

My name is Molly Clesen and I currently work as a teacher of students with visual impairments in Springfield Public Schools. I interned for 5 weeks this summer with the Manuela Gandarillas Center for the Blind in Cochabamba, Bolivia. This was an opportunity to empower and contribute to an amazing program in this local community by working with the clients to help them complete tasks independently, teaching lessons on writing, Braille, and other techniques, and participating in games and exercises to stimulate other senses. My goal has been to keep all supporters informed with up to date information about my fundraising efforts and experiences abroad. Even though I have returned, the center for the blind continues to need support. If you would like to donate to a very worthwhile cause, please click on the "Donate" button below. Thank you and any support you can provide is very appreciated. --Molly

So far so good...

Travel Medications...Check
Plane tickets to and from Bolivia...Check
Bug spray...check

The grand total raised so far is $1700!  I am very excited but also a little nervous about taking this adventure.  This is the first time that I will be going to a foreign country without family or friends.  This will be the ultimate test of my wits, as I haven't spoken Spanish in some time.  Instead, I've been preoccupied with studying for my Orientation and Mobility certification test, which I take June 22.  God willing, everything will continue to go as well as it has and this will be the experience of a lifetime.

Stay tuned ladies and germs...
