We went to a local school and did a presentation on recycling. It was amazing to see how educated the kids were on the environment. We worked with the communities and it was really empowering.
Going to the Carrizal Aquifer was an eye-opening experience. I was able to understand the impact that climate change has on the environment in just a short amount of time, but also how building a strong community dedicated to saving the surrounding spaces can minimize the destruction done.
Traveling to Cahuita and working with young students of color was amazing. They were full of life and relatively receptive, despite the language barrier. My group was called to work on empowerment through literacy and Cahuita was the setting for our project. Overall, this was a beautiful area with beautiful people.
visiting the school in Cauhita and getting to interact with the student through a workshop that was created by some students in my cohort, was an experience i simply wont forget. Even with the kids only speaking Spanish they were excited to see us and teach them about empowerment.
