Barbasco gets a makeover - Honduras

During a week-long school holiday, the GVI volunteers and a bunch of brilliantly keen kids, gave the school at Barbasco a facelift. The walls in both classrooms were cleaned and painted a fresh shade of blue, while a smaller room - previously being used for storage - was converted into a brand new classroom for the 1st Grade students.

With bright yellow walls, complete with the alphabet and numbers, it´s the perfect space for the younger kids to learn... and have fun! With help from all the kids and Sandra - teacher and director at Barbasco - the main classroom was also decorated, and we all agree it looks GREAT!

I'm absolutely thrilled to bits to see the progress that is being made in Barbasco. As the first vollie teaching in Barbasco with Phomolo, I'm so excited to see that, little by little, Barbasco is catching up to San Raf. Keep up the awesome work team!

How does GVI Phoenix make a difference?

The following film was made in Guatemala, though the message is the same across all GVI Phoenix projects
