For both of these reasons, it was a huge boost when the Municipal government approved the construction of the school on “community land”, and the national department of education authorized the school as a public institution and pledged to pay the teacher’s salaries. Facilitated by Peace Corps volunteer Stefanie Fabrico, the construction of bottle school not only helped clean up the community by recycling the plastic bottles and trash from being thrown out, it also provided a place for teenagers to learn. The bottle school now offers two career tracks for study: accounting and teaching.
