Cayo Santa Maria: Marcelo Salado Community Update (February 2017)

by S-Trip! Staff, 2 years ago

S-Trip! Destination: Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba
Site Visit, January 2017

Last month, our head office staff spent some time in each of our Cuban destinations to prepare for our March Break programs. We were happy to be able to spend some time at Escuela Frank País Garcia, the school outside of Remedios that our passengers have been visiting for the last few seasons.

Our Volunteer Experience in Cuba focuses on cultural exchange. In Cayo Santa Maria, this has involved painting several murals, including some that show how much Canada loves Cuba!

Our travelers have gotten creative and made the school a brighter and happier place to learn!

We are excited to bring passengers back to this lovely school again over March Break. As a token of our appreciation for the time that we get to spend with the 90 students that attend this school, our passengers have been replacing the windows in each of the classrooms. While we've installed new windows along the front side of the school, there are still almost 20 of the original windows that need to be updated, since they fail to keep the rain out!

Compare the old to the new!

We hope that you will join us on your Volunteer Experience in Cayo Santa Maria, to help restore this school completely! Read more about our volunteer projects, and read this blog to make sure you pack everything you need for the Volunteer Experience on your #GradTrip!
