At this point, there is now a high school where the youth who have gone through the whole elementary system are students and there are many adults who never went to school following the mainstream curriculum.
We got the funding and supervised the construction of a bridge over the river separating the community from the population and also constructed cabins for tourists who want to come and visit the group. We have taught the women how to work with tourists and promoted the crafts that they make out of the same bark cloth that your baby booties are made of. They use all natural materials for both the twine and the dyes.
Our coop is run completely by women, which is a big factor in their development.
Needs of this community now include computers, school supplies and books. The high school is in a very nice building and the teachers are paid by the Ministry of Education. They are ready for computer learning and are looking into the kinds of professions they would like to follow once they graduate."
