Field Trip to the Countryside!

Last Saturday we took our seventh graders to visit the rural community called Rio Muchacho, just ten minutes north of Canoa. Our first stop was at the community school, where we met up with the Rio Muchacho students and planted trees around the school and the site where the church will be built this year. 

After planting more than 30 trees, we continued even farther into the jungle to the Rio Muchacho Organic Farm, where we did various educational activities. First, we heard a short workshop about the effect of plastic and practiced saying "No bag please!" at the store! Then we took a short nature walk to feel the energy that trees share with us. And finally, we learned how to make chocolate from the cacao seed. Delicious! 

Overall, the kids were tired after a long and stimulating day! They learned and enjoyed a day in the countryside that they will not soon forget! This is all possible thanks to your generous support! 

As this was the last activity of the 2019-2020 school year, we are now working to get together the program for the 2020-2021 school year that starts in April, and we are still far away from our goal! Please share our cause with everyone who cares about this planet and wants the next generation to learn how to take care of it!
