On November 6 the Cannonball group delivered backpacks full of school supplies to 19 children who are part of the community service project called Bio-clean, which has as its objective the empowerment of children through environmental education. Bio-clean is the community service project of the Economic Sciences students of FAJB.
The Cannonball Group is made up of American Airlines employees, along with their friends and family, who have been coming to San Juan del Sur every year since 2004. The activity began with the presentation of the service project by members of the group, including María José Sánchez Muñoz, Ingrid Pamela Pérez, Francis Aliana Quiroz, and Lidieth del Socorro Jiménez. The students explained the objectives and activities of their social initiative to the Cannonball group, which include collecting trash from the beach and making crafts from the collected materials.
For example, the students made piggy banks from discarded plastic soda bottles, which also gave the economics students the chance to teach the children about saving money. After the school supplies were delivered the children enjoyed a snack and burst a piñata. Every November Fundación A. Jean Brugger and the Cannonball Group deliver school supplies to children in San Juan del Sur, to ensure that children have the necessary materials for their studies and to help ensure a better education. Fundación A. Jean Brugger appreciates the support and participation of the Cannonball group.
Thank you Sandra Sheil, Randy Hale, Maria Teran-Hale, and Sharon Larock for being willing to come to Nicaragua at this time. Other members of the Economic Sciences community service group are Ruth Rostran, Casta Margarita Rivera, and Cesar Augusto Romero.
