07 Jul Los Jometes (phase III)
Some of the communities that Hug It Forward has worked with have had makeshift classrooms, some that are falling apart, classes are held outside, or they have no classrooms and just a piece of land. In Los Jometes, 3 teachers were teaching 300 middle school students. The bottle classrooms constructed in the first and second phases benefitted the community, and also 4 other surrounding communities.
Because of the need for classrooms that was seen in the previous phases of bottle classroom projects, we will help facilitate the construction of 3 additional classrooms to serve the 300 middle school students that make their way to Los Jometes. In the future, this school hopes to transform a couple of their new bottle classrooms into computer & science labs. Many of the children walk over a half an hour in all weather conditions, to Los Jometes to receive a middle school education.
Population (approximately): 300
