School makeovers in Ecuador

All 3 schools got a new coat of paint inside and out, plus some well needed DIY ahead of the start of the new school year. Thanks and congratulations on a fantastic job go out all the volunteers and staff who worked long hours over a 2 week period to get the job finished.

Particular mention goes out to our ‘foreman’ Jack Somervell, intern trainee, whose artistic abilities inspired the team. Thanks also to Zoe O’Connor and Margie Germain, ex volunteers, whose fundraising efforts ensured we could make the ever expanding wishes of the community leaders a reality!

The teachers and children, plus community members were delighted with the results – well done everyone!
