Our programme of the international volunteers at REGUA has started very well this year. We had a large group arriving in February with Chris, Timmo, Bea, Monica, Beca, Jose, Ed, Rowan and Lisa and though the weather was hot and rainy, they have helped with the nursery, planting trees and their cultivation. Luckily Ed, Rowan, Lisa and Jose under Beca’s translation skills were really keen to pass their basketball skills and the kids loved every moment. We put up a net and the ball has been bouncing since. Beca with her experience in teacher work in US parks passed her vision of the world free of garbage and her preparation of a PowerPoint presentation did well to enthuse the young volunteers that we are all responsible for our clean up. Our congratulations to these young teachers who help inspire the kids here and multiply the message.
