TWP and Positive Legacy Partner in the Caribbean

by Sebastian Africano, International Director


In partnership with Cloud 9 Adventures and their non-profit arm, Positive Legacy, Trees, Water & People is providing festival goers in the Caribbean with opportunities to engage in meaningful social and environmental projects throughout the region.  During the first annual Strings and Sol bluegrass festival, over 25 people from the festival joined us at the Amanecer Learning Community – a new K-8 school near Tulum that provides alternative education involving knowledge of local culture, environment, yoga, arts, and theater in combination with the standard academic curriculum.  Volunteers donated school supplies and digital cameras to the students, and were able to help in the construction of a clean cookstove, plus paint several murals around the school as the children presented us songs and dances they had prepared. This partnership with the Amanecer Learning Community is in its earliest stages, and we look forward to watching it grow and flourish over the years. Thanks to everyone who came out to support this project!
