This past Saturday, November 5, the daycare hosted a day of cleaning in the neighborhood, promoting a cleaner world to the people here. The parents were obligated to come, or a representative from each family, to help clean up the streets. Groups were made to: clean up the vegetable garden, clean trash in the streets, use machetes in the ditches, clean the grounds of the daycare, hang signs promoting throwing trash in the trashcan, and one group in the kitchen preparing lunch for all the volunteers. Many people showed up, worked together and the daycare now is looking greater than ever. The trick that now lies ahead, is keeping people motivated to keep the streets clean. In a developing country such as Bolivia, the amount of uneducated people outnumber those educated, producing a world covered in trash and garbage. We are starting the process of making a better world for the people living in and around the neighborhoods surrounding the Guarderia Samuelito!
