Local students in Mal Pais and Santa Teresa have a three hour school day. This project aims to lengthen the school day with an ESL, and extra curricular program for students and evening classes for adults. We also hope to facilitate a bilingual Pre-school project and support Non-profit bilingual schools in the area.
The enthusiasm of the local community already exists and with your help we hope to allow these children an enriched education and the opportunity to secure higher quality jobs later in life.
