Meet Yorimar

Meet Yorimar

Yorimar is a 22 year old volunteer and member of the scholarship group of El Niño y la Bola CR which supports her in her university studies. She joined the foundation 3 years ago through a friend who mentioned to her what the Foundation's work and what ENYLB is all about. "The foundation has become a very valuable place for me where I have learned many things and have grown as a person, for which I am very happy to be a part of every day. I think that the work of the Foundation is an example, a display of how to help the people who need it most", said Yorimar about ENYLB. Her dreams are to finish her university degree, work, study a second degree and learn languages. We are very proud to have Yorimar in the Foundation's programs and know that with continued hard work and effort, these dreams are soon to become reality!

Girl's Group Outing
 Another fun event which took place this July, making the most of the mid-year school vacations, was an outing to Crea+, inside the San Jose Museo de Ninos, with the girls from the TS and LC girls groups. Accompanied by ENYLB team and volunteers, the girls spent a great morning taking photos, spending quality time as a group and getting to know those from another community.

Community Clean Up

Organizing a community clean-up is a great way to make your community a cleaner place, connect with friends and neighbors, and give back to the community. A big difference can be seen from the efforts in a small amount of time. A tidy neighborhood can do so much, like help residents feel safe and secure, develop a sense of community pride and it also sets a good example for all people to live a healthy, active and environmentally concious lifestyle. Last Saturday, Boy with a Ball community leaders in El Triangulo planned and executed a successful community clean up and a great time doing it! About 30 youth from the community put on their vests and gloves to clean up the community and take some time to think about what contamination does to their community!
