Community kitchen at the service of the people of Caguas
By Siri Rolon - Special Project's Director
Nuestra Escuela, thanks to the contributions of GlobalGiving, launched the Solar Powered First Response Center project in Puerto Rico. This project will allow the construction of a space that will serve both as a cafeteria for our students and as a first response center in case of emergencies for the community. There, people will have access to electricity, communications and will receive at least one hot meal per day.
As we indicated in the last report, the space is already available and the conditioning of it has begun. Thanks to your donations, the construction phase on the site has already begun. For this reason, we have already carried out the following works: cleaning, repairing walls and works with the perimeters of the property. Thank you! ¡Gracias!
Thanks to your donations, Nuestra Escuela continues to offer services to the children and youth of Caguas and nearby communities. The construction of additional spaces to expand services is in its final stage. So, our kids and youth will have a better space for receiving academic and biopsychosocial services. In addition, it was possible to offer food, participate in sporting events and support families in the development of healthy relationships.
As part of the activities that have been possible we highlighted vocational exploration and preparation for employment. Participating in workshops in journalism, mechanics, agriculture and styling. Your donation has been essential in the transformation of the students, who are developing into responsible citizens, committed to their communities. Likewise, our children experienced activities that allowed them to experience contact with nature.
Thanks to your support, our students learn social and financial skills for their lives. Nuestra Escuela is committed to the development of children and young people and your donation makes our work possible. If you continue supporting us, we will be able to keep sharing our Mission of Love. ¡Gracias!
Our dream of creating a safe space for the community after a disaster is going to be true. Nuestra Escuela’s now have a building that is going to become a Solar Powered First Response Center. This is a space where our students and the community can come after an emergency for having access to meals, communications, and electricity. Also, during school's year is going to be Nuestra Escuela’s cafeteria.
The reliable charging stations would be open to the community making available space for charging their devices and refrigerate medications. With your donations Nuestra Escuela begun the cleaning process of the space in the middle of the town, and next month will begin the construction. As a result of your donation, Nuestra Escuela will make the Center possible and now the municipality of Caguas will be able to attend the community after emergencies. Thank you for supporting us!
