After a lot of financial support we have finally started construction of the classrooms for our kindergarten in Mal Pais! We still need to raise funds for classroom furniture and supplies and volunteers are ready to start painting next month. The doors will be open in January 2014 and we are very excited to welcome our new students.
In Costa Rica, October is the month to celebrate world culture with October 12th being a national holiday called 'Dia de Culturas", to highlight both the cultural contributions of the Spanish, indigenous and Caribbeans. We enjoy this time with the students to celebrate different cultures and integrate global issues into the curriculum.
In December, three of our sponsor students are graduating and we are hoping to continue sponsoring them with full scholarship at the non-profit community bilingual school "Escuela Futuro Verde"...so plenty more fundraising events to come.
We are grateful to all our private sponsors who help us finance the project and also the many volunteers who have and still continue to share their time and energy.
