Us (pronounced oose) means bueno/good in the local Mayan language, Q'eqchi'. Past volunteers from Chirrepec have visited and indicated that it is one of the words they have kept in their vocabulary. Letting out the occasional us to good news will likely remain a part of my vocabulary and will surely result in weird stares at the guy who seems to be making some sort of animal noise. I am pleased to let out an 'us' that the Hope 4R Youth Project has been completely funded and will commence in mid-January. Thank you to all the donors!
The Volunteer project you have requested is fully funded. Please consider supporting other projects around the world:
