The day I went to visit the Esperanza School will be a memory I will have forever. Driving down the dusty road just about ten minutes from where I work I could see as we pulled up that this was going to be hard. My friend Doris and I were going to a board meeting that day to tell them about the fundraiser we wanted to put on at the Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort to help support their needs.
We (the community of Nosara and beyond) were able to raise about $17,000 in a very short span of time for the Esperanza School Project. A project that started out of a true heart opening- by witnessing the state in which this school has been left. Left after earthquake damage, left after a major robbery. It fueled me. It made everything seem possible.
