BENEFITING: FOTOKIDS INC
Guaruma is Fotokids' sister organization operating in Honduras promoting environmental awareness and conservation through educational programs in the Rio Cangrejal watershed on the eastern edge of Pico Bonito National Park. Our program runs concurrently with the Honduran school year, so it's time to fundraise to ensure we can start up again on time in 2014! We are fundraising for operational expenses, including supplies and small stipends for volunteer instructors. Please visit our website www.guaruma.org or read on below for more information. Also please be sure to take a moment to look at some of our beautiful, award-winning photographs taken by Guaruma youth. Gracias!
As an organization we promote rural development and natural resource conservation through our multi-dimensional, after-school education program. We work towards community development and environmental education engaging local youth and adults as active participants in the protection of the local environment.
Guaruma works to raise environmental consciousness and support conservation efforts through education targeting children in ecological hotspots. Using the latest technology in digital photography and computer sciences, Guaruma's educational program has a unique disposition. Involving the student through the exciting use of multi-media is strengthened by the philosophy of ecological responsibility.
