Day 11, February 23 (Wednesday)

Today was our big day of teaching. We were well prepared, but were only planning on doing ONE presentation. When we got to the school we were informed that we would present to each grade (which meant FIVE presentations) and then two presentations at a different school!

Our ride to the school!

We all stepped up to the challenge and it seemed like our message was well received. We all presented in Spanish despite our varying abilities in the language. The younger kids really liked the posters we made and all asked us to return soon. The nurse from El Tololar also gave out Albendazole to all of the children during our visit.


After our presentations, we had a little time to relax at a nearby pool. We returned and played cards at our bar to close out the night.


  1. What where your presentations about? How did you decide on that topic?

    Sorry for the delay in responding. There were some technical difficulties. Our presentations were on the enthralling topic of diarrhea (prevention, symptoms/physiology, treatment). The health center suggested the topic as one of need and of obvious great benefit to the students, especially those that live far from any health centers.
