This past week the KKIS Project hosted the LB Seminars professional development group to Playa, to do a service project at the Rodolfo Mendendez primary school in Nicte Ha (just north of Centro). The 34 members of their group, under the leadership of Jorge Rojas and his team from Greenway Landscaping based here in Playa, cleaned, pruned, cut down, raked and bagged almost 80 bags of trash and planted 2 small vegetable gardens at the school.
When the work was done the group of volunteers was served a lunch from the cafeteria and they played games with the children. The sack race was thrilling to the end and the basketball game full of fun times. The group also donated 40 pairs of soccer shoes and almost $1000 usd of school supplies, which filled 2 car trunks and a back seat. This was the first project at the school and in two weeks another group will come and do the 2nd phase of building benches and painting.
