Scholarship students of the Fundación A. Jean Brugger in Tourism and International Trade have begun their community service project teaching English to children in the Nuevo Amanecer neighborhood. The classes take place on Sundays from 10 am to 11:30 a.m, and 30 children attend. Oral hygiene talks will also be given with the goal that the children will acquire good habits. The talks will cover the most important aspects about dental hygiene such as: the proper habits of dental hygiene, the characteristics of the teeth, brushing technique, materials that we use for dental hygiene, the consequences of a lack of dental hygiene etc. There will also be talks on human trafficking in order to inform children about this problem and contribute to the prevention of this crime
On Tuesday, July 31, 2018, the senior citizens of the San Juan del Sur area enjoyed a special day thanks to the Fundación A. Jean Brugger. In this event the elders danced a lot, sang, and won prizes in contests. Baskets with food and basic supplies were also given to 3 elderly women chosen for their economic need. The staff of El Timon served a delicious lunch.
This event took place thanks to the support of Deborah Cornue and Jane Erickson, who have sponsored this activity for three years. Fundación A. Jean Brugger also thanks the owners of El Timón Restaurant and its staff for their co-patronage.
The staff of El Timon always offers a warm reception and gives special attention to the elderly. The seniors commented that they felt very well received and cared for, and were thankful to the waiters for the presentation of the special dance. We thank the company Soluciones Jurídicas, who has supported us on several occasions sponsoring one of the prizes for the competitions.
We also appreciate the collaboration of the students of the Fundación A. Jean Brugger scholarship program, who contributed food items, household supplies, and personal hygiene items for the preparation of the gift baskets. We want to thank the following students for their participation and support in this activity: Ingrid Obando, Ana Odalys Sanchez, Lilieth Jimenez, Maria Jose Sanchez, Karina Chavez, Denisse Tenorio, Ingrid Pérez, Lismadiela Baez, and Joselin Romero.

During the week of July 02 to 06, the second Baseball Camp of 2018 was held in the community of Bastón, which is part of the municipality of San Juan del Sur. 30 boys and girls participated in this seminar.
In this workshop they were taught habits and values for their personal development, such as discipline and teamwork, as well as classes in baseball technique.
On the last day of the camp, with techniques learned, a friendly baseball match was played between 2 groups of children. This was followed by a closing event in which presents were given to the 6 best participants, which took into account the children’s behavior and participation throughout the seminar.
Afterwards they all enjoyed pizza and a piñata. We thank the sponsor of the baseball camp, the Christopher Shatagin Foundation, for making these popular events possible.
We are also grateful to our coach Alejandro Noguera, who inspires the participants to do their best, and also to our scholarship students Lismadiela Báez, Joselin Romero, and Ingrid Obando.
On Saturday, June 30, Fundación A Jean Brugger scholarship students organized a beach clean-up with the children from the neighborhood of Camilo Ortega. This group of FAJB students has made environmental education their community service project this year.
The beach clean-up was carried out with the objective of raising awareness and cultivating a beach-cleaning culture among the children. The duration of the activity was 2 hours. They first collected all the trash at the seashore that detracted from the beauty of our lovely bay, then played games, with the scholarship students having as much fun as the children.
The activity ended with an Eskimo ice cream as a snack as well as chocolates and candies. Apart from raising awareness in the children of the importance of the care and cleanliness of the beach, the scholarship students want to create in them the culture of recycling, taking as a focal point the three Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), since with the waste found throughout each class we will do crafts. The activity was attended by 18 children who were very enthusiastic about this first cleaning of our bay.
The scholarship students in this project are Maria Jose Sanchez, Ingrid Perez, Francis Quiroz, Lilieth Jimenez, Cesar Romero, Ruth Rostran, Casta Rivera, and Karina Chavez. Fundación A. Jean Brugger congratulates the economic science group for its excellent social initiative in our community.
Scholarship students of Fundación A. Jean Brugger in civil engineering and computer science voluntarily support the educational fair of the Barrio la Planta Project.
Scholarship students in the Medical Sciences impart a seminar in sexual and reproductive health in Bernardino.
