Tea and muffins

The won­der­ful Marj and Gary Young, founders of Edu­ca­tion Is Power  and long-time La Loma guests and friends, recently paid us visit. A great excuse for a little teatime get together of all the local stu­dents they spon­sor to attend high school and university.

Edu­ca­tion is Power was set up after Marj and Gary’s first trip to La Loma in 2010. In its short but remark­able his­tory EIP has fun­ded the con­struc­tion of the Bahia Honda play­ground, helped to pur­chase com­puters and school sup­plies, and donated masses of books for the soon to be opened lib­rary.  Per­haps most import­antly it also provides core fund­ing for the run­ning of the Bahia Honda preschool and after-school pro­grams and provides 10 stu­dents with assist­ance in cov­er­ing the costs of their edu­ca­tion. For any of you that want to con­trib­ute to Edu­ca­tion is Power and all the good things it brings to Bahia Honda, take a look at their web­site where you can make a tax deduct­ible donation.
