Central America Sunday
Join us on September 18, Central America Sunday, for a celebration of fifteen years of helping hard working families in Central America help themselves. There will be music, decorations, special food and community groups: piñatas for the children and a special collection to buy construction materials for the schools we will help build in Honduras this winter. Since 1997 over 50 members and friends of Toronto First have worked on construction projects in Central America with the goal of building understanding between people and improving the social, economic and living conditions in the poorest areas. We have helped build schools, houses, community and training centres. This is a hands-on opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of subsistence farm families and their communities. Construction and Spanish language skills are not required but are welcome. All you need is a willing heart.
Is this the year you take up the challenge by joining a team of volunteers from across Canada? There will be 3 two-week Construction Expeditions to Honduras beginning, January 14, February 11 and March 10, 2012.
