How Cool! My Project Location Changed!

Okay – don’t freak out…. I am so surprised I thought this was a joke at first. My project location changed!! And dare I say I looooooooooove this new project! HOW COOL!

Hopefully this is it…LOL. New project description below:

Community – Los Jazmines

Population – 33 families or 168 peopleProject Partner – Los Jazmines Women Association

+ points – has access to the local bus, even taxi. Cell phone reception, our private room. No sleeping on the floor. Even TV! Not that I watch TV anyway…..

It is located in the northern highland area of Costa Rica, about 15 miles from the Nicaraguan border, in the region of Jazmines, one of the poorest in Costa Rica.

Here’s some more info on what we’ll actually do.

1) Improve school infrastructure for better, safer access to education.

We will be completing the recently restored school and paint desks and the outside of the school.

Beneficiaries

Around 70 children, from 4 to 13 years, who are educated in Los Jazmines. so super cute!! 🙂 I can’t wait to start!

2) Technology Classroom Construction to increase the technology skills of the community.

3) Host several English as a second language classes for children and other community members.

4) Organize workshops on Sexual Reproductive Health and Environmental Education

While there is no access to internet in the community itself, I will be able to get mail.. haha Mommy – maybe you can send me some snail mail…with no snails in them please.. LOL
