Notes from Puerto Viejo De Talamanca

January 27, 2011

ATEC, the Talamancan Association of Ecotourism and Conservation, was able to raise enough funds to purchase school supplies for all 20 kids at the Kekoldi School. It has also purchased four sets of schoolbooks for students at the Patino School, and is still raising funds to get books for all 50 students. A set of books costs just ₡6,000 ($12) per student. Donations to ATEC can be made through PayPal, by e-mailing donations@puravidaproject.com, or by calling 2750-0191 or 2750-0398.
