Volunteers in the Community

We have been having a wonderful summer with volunteers staying in Muñoz, right by the batey we serve! They have traveled to another community where we have a school in the mornings to do an English immersion camp, but have stayed in the area in the afternoons and been doing "eco-construction" projects. These are all low cost projects we hope to introduce to the community. We have our school garden full of the super plant moringa, a human compost toilet, a food compost, solar oven, rocket stoves, solar lights, and volunteers also experimented some with home made water filters. We hope to build on all of this in the future.

We now are searching out a new house in the area for volunteer housing and the area that was used for volunteer housing this past year will be used for the school. We have lots to work on before school opens on September 9th. We had one day of medical check ups for students and family members. Project Helping Hands medical team came for the day and did general consultations. After people got their check ups, we led them to a handwashing station in the school yard, and also gave explanations about the other projects we were working on. Volunteers were also available to register students for the new school year.

We are looking forward to the new school year! If you would like to sponsor a student, the fee is $100 annually and you will receive your student's profile. Thanks for your support!
