In his February 2017 program Sam Brown described the initial stages of his project to have volunteers knit squares that would be part of afghans.  In the current program he describes the process of assembling the afghans and distributing them to students in Mexico who are being sponsored by Project Amigo, www.projectamigo.org.

Project Amigo, www.projectamigo.org, supports students from Colima in rural western Mexico so that they can create their own educational opportunities and better their quality of life. The beautiful afghans that these students receive will help keep the Project Amigo scholars and other family members warm.  Up in the mountains, it gets down to the 50s at night; none of the homes have heaters so that can feel pretty cold—especially if you're used to temperatures in the 80s and 90s. The generosity of knitters in the U.S. and Canada means Project Amigo students and their families will get a better night's sleep. They will know that they are wrapped up in an afghan made with lots of love and will come to school alert and fully rested.
