Future projects:

- To build a small library in the two room school that houses all six grades in the Cayos Cochinos. We will provide the supplies, manpower, books in Spanish and Garifuna and establish a lending system that will be coordinated by the students.
-To raise the funds for, purchase and install a new water cistern for rain collection in the Cayos Cochinos, on the island of Chachahuate, where there is no fresh water, resulting in many hardships.
-To work with the villagers in the Cayos in establishing a composting program, using fish waste and other food scraps to grow vegetables such as tomatoes in containers. The sandy, hot living conditions on the islands means that villagers have few vegetables in their diet, resulting in many health problems.

The first photo above shows a group of Garifuna kids who were thrilled to have a Garifuna artist named Luma work with them on a free-standing mural for their village-it was a rare opportunity for them to paint and to showcase their creativity! The next photo shows a team teaching adults & kids in a village in the Cayos how to play volleyball, using the ball and net that the team gave to the village.
