PA College visits Las Terrenas on Service Action
To enjoy the sights and enjoy the natural offerings in our community
Eighteen students from Lycoming College in Pennsylvania, USA, visited Las Terrenas for a community service opportunity and to enjoy the sights and enjoy the natural offerings in our community.
The students helped in the construction of the Boulevard of the Butterflies at elementary school Antonio Castillo Lora, to which they contribute funds and labor for its execution. They spent time with kids in the preschool classroom and helped prepare the garden area for the planting of flowers.
In addition to the hard work at the school they had a chance to enjoy the El Limon Waterfall, the beaches, Luis’ restaurant in Coson and a bit of dancing and eating at local joints.
The visit was hosted by Fundación Mahatma Gandhi-Las Terrenas and sponsored by ACES North America, which runs educational and community programs at various locations in the country and is a partner with Fundacion Mahatma Gandhi. The Lycoming College group was led by Brittany Tasch, a staff person at the college.
