Santa Marta, Colombia: Classroom Renovation

Minimum Fundraising Commitment: $2,500 including $150 non-refundable deposit

Preserving the traditional ways of life is important to the Kogui indigenous community that live in the highlands of the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains of Northern Colombia. A community classroom space where students used to participate in cultural classes has gone in disrepair and therefore unusable. Renovating the classroom and bringing it back as a space for children to learn, surrounded by the beautiful mountains, has been identified by the community as a top priority.

Surf For Life volunteers will work with the local community to renovate the old classroom building including painting, roof repair, updating bathroom facilities, and more.
