Saman Internet Center

Only as Strong as Your Leader

There is, again, not much to report for the internet center, mainly because of the continued absence of Peralta, the man who founded and heads up the community development organization that the internet center will go to serve. He continues to spend weeks at a time outside of the community in order to work, and comes for a few days only in intervals. However, he is now transitioning from work away from home to work more frequently at home, and his business is growing, so it may not be long before he will be able to spend much more time in the Saman community and oversee the internet center and organization as a whole. Previously he was doing garden work in an area of the country two hours away. But now he has a functioning vehicle and is selling rice. He will soon start utilizing his candle maker and adding candles to the merchandise he drives around and sells. This business is just beginning but is going well, so once it gets stable, he should be a much more present husband to his wife, father to his kids, and leader to the organization. There is still a group willing on coming down this fall to help set up the finishing touches with the internet center. Let’s hope that Peralta can get his business going before then to the point where he can be as present as he needs to be. Thank you, always, for your support!
