My TED story
My students have been participating in a service learning project in Panama for five years.
The first year we painted a mural on elementary school in an indigenous village
The second year we helped do maintenance work around a catholic mission and school for the indigenous and we donated a computer lab.
The third year we brought and installed a water purification system for a coffee plantation. We also held an education rally in the town square. The students were able to work with local businesses to contribute food for 200 people to eat and learn about educational opportunity.
The forth year we duplicated the education rally and printed 400 tri-lingual coloring books to distribute in indigenous reservation, and the mission and town that we visit.
The fifth year we completed our education rally again and expanded the tri-lingual coloring books to phrases. The original mural that we painted appears on the cover of these books.
