Las Brisas School

 

Sitting on the edge of dusty dirt road Las Brisas has struggled with limited funding and last year had only fourteen students from five families. This years additions of younger students has qualified the school for a kindergarten teach as will as an aid. Also this year funding was found to complete the kitchen. Last year hot food was carried by hand from a neighbor’s house.  Volunteer guides from Ecoteach Student Travel have built bathrooms and replaced rotting roofs. Veragua Rainforest Reserve, a nearby educational and research station has also donated labor and materials.

Needs

A separate bathroom is needed for the kindergärtners.

Each student also need to have uniforms for class and gym. This is mandatory and costs about $50 US for each student.
