Merry Christmas and Feliz Navidad

Here’s to a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to everyone in El Cocal and all of the volunteers that have helped to develop and improve our Community project over the last year. 

We are very excited to be welcoming a new bunch volunteers in January ! As the school in El Cocal is closed until the second week of February we have an exciting Summer School planned for the kids. The principal is allowing us to use the school to run our ‘Vacaciones Utiles’. So far 27 kids have signed up and we will be offering English classes, reading math and sports.We really want to give the kids some fun and learning over their vacation so that they don’t just hang around all day every day.

It is at times like this that you can truly see why our project is needed in El Cocal. We launched the community project on the GVI Charitable Trust website in order to buy more educational supplies and support the school and community centre.
