The Saludable School Project was first started 8 years ago when the first Peace Corps volunteer was welcomed into the community. A strong promotion for healthy living and healthy habits was asserted and passed on to the volunteers that followed and continue through each volunteer’s work. As the community continues to grow and build within, it is time to construct growth externally. The local school has an incredible connection with the core of the community and many of the surrounding areas send their children to the school because of the education and community assistance. A small school with big plans, each student has their books, healthy snacks and tooth brush in hand all provided by the Minstry of Education of Paraguay, but more is needed to continue healthy habits. In collaboration with the professors of the school and family and friends both near and far the school wishes to create sanitary locations in the school for the youth to wash their hands, brush teeth and cook food for school and after school activities. The school raised enough funds to finish bathrooms for both boys and girls this past year all from community contribution and hard work. The community with great emphasis on parents of youth are actively involved and ready to work for the children of this town and Paraguay’s future. This next project engages all once again in the development of an improved place of learning and living. Thank you for your support!donate at the link below! http://tinyurl.com/neybvtf
