    Must Read

    Creating a Conscious alternative news network that we feel the world needs. Pura Vida!

    The small school of Carbon 1 and its students and parents have partnered with generous group of women from North America called “Women Like Us” and with ATEC (the Talamancan Association of Ecotourism and Conservation) to renovate their school.

    Work is getting done. With financail donations from Women Like Us, support of parents in the school, and coordination by ATEC, the project has begun by installing a new electrical meter and wires.

    You can help out too! On Friday the 16th of July the Carbon School is calling for a work day! A generous parent has donated the wood to make new desktops for the 18 students. The desks will need to be sanded down and repainted, the new desktops varnished and names of the students carved in each desk. We also plan to scrape and sand down all the metal in the two classrooms, including metal bars on the windows and the metal doors and then paint them. And do a general cleaning of the two main classrooms and the bathrooms.

    The list of what we need to do this phase of the renovation project:

    • Sandpaper for wood and for metal
    • Paint brushes
    • Brushes to scrape metal bars
    • Anti-corrosive paint for the desks and the bars on windows
    • Varnish for new desktops
    • Gloves
    • rags,
