Sports day for the kids in El Cocal

Last Friday we held an official sports day at school to have some fun and encourage the children of El Cocal to be active! 
During the day we played a few games including potato-sack races, starfish tag, and dizzy baseball. The kids and the volunteers all had a blast with a lot of laughs.

After our sports activities, we also presented a recycling lesson to the students, to encourage taking care of our environment and their community! More about this in a forthcoming blog....

This week we have had a few days to work on restoring the center and the school in El Cocal, and I can't wait to see the final finished product.

My two weeks here have been amazing, and I wish I was staying longer; I am so glad I was able to be a part of this program, volunteering in the center, the school, restoring the classroom, and was able meet so many great volunteers and staff! :)
