Varituc means “place of trees” and the people from the community always try to plant trees as a reminder of its name.
The project (elementary school) will benefit 288 kids, 13 staff members and 300 families in the area. This is the biggest bottle school yet (6 classroom total) and it took the community over a year to collect all the bottles and build the retaining wall which was necessary for the school.
