Once again, help was directed towards the elementary school in the village of Las Sabanas.

The initiative developed was a Horticulture project for all the children in the school. They were given the tools and seeds necessary to start their own vegetable garden.

The children learned how to prepare the soil, sow their seeds, and care for their school garden. The children of the town of El Cipian have also benefited from this program.

In a little ceremony with students, teachers, and the Mayor of Las Sabanas present, we delivered the tools and seeds to get the program started at the elementary school in El Cipian.

Sprinklers, rakes, hoses and fertilizers were also donated along with paper products to carry out visual presentations.
