We made a conscious decision not to make any decisions about projects beore arriving in San Pablo this year. This strategy served us well, as it opened the opportunity for dialogue with the community and students from San Pablo about their needs, from which we identified a basic desire to be warm. Ultimately all groups (aside from the education students and the internet cafe side project) focused on this problem statement in some fashion. You can check out their projects, thoughts, and challenges on the blog page!
Each year we ask that students write regularly in a public blog so that friends, family, and colleagues have an idea of what we are up to. Take an inside look at what it's like to be a Guateca student on the 2012 Blog
