A big thank you to all of the St. George’s students and teachers that came to volunteer at Project Somos this week. The students worked hard all week digging trenches, planning activities with the kids, working in the kitchen, and playing soccer. On Thursday Saints had the opportunity to go to Iximche, local Mayan ruins with our foreman Antolin as a guide. They learned about Mayan culture and ways of life. After the tour the students went to Tecpan to visit the market and watch a procession for Semana Santa (Easter). In the afternoon we had a local ‘Kid’s Day’ where close to 50 kids showed up to play with the volunteers, some of the activities included puzzles, the zipline, a few different soccer games, and the parachute to end the day off! A great way to finish off their volunteer week. Thanks again to all of the students that came and volunteered. Safe travels home!
