Notes from Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

July 21, 2011

The folks at the Carbon 1 Elementary School are working every Friday and Saturday painting walls and replacing the ceiling. Give us a call or just show up in your work clothes to lend a hand. The parent committee is raising funds for the school renovation by selling food at the Sunday soccer games at the school from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Go enjoy a game and support the school.

Thanks to the Women Like Us Foundation from the U.S. and school administrator Maritza Gaitan for working so hard to provide better educational opportunities for the kids in this remote school. Contact Laura if you want to lend a hand with this school project or if you have any other skills that you can use to empower folks in Talamanca. Write ateccr@gmail.com or call 2750-0398.

The Tribal Market in Cubali Town (Cocles, 3 km south of Puerto Viejo) is having another multicultural fair featuring variety shows, booths with food and services, presentations and workshops. Come join in the fun on Saturday, July 23, from 1 to 7 p.m. Call the folks at Tribal Market for more information at 2750-0923
