Childrens Needs & Education Brenda Sandoval Tristan Solano Matt Almaraz Kent Ratliff Brandon Obregon Cindy Bugarin
Finding a Need First, we wanted to work with animals We were unable to do this We worked with children
San Antonios Need San Antonio has the highest number of high school drop outs in Texas and in the nation
Current Events Organizations such as CRIN and One Laptop per Child are working globally to help solve the problem of underprivileged children and childrens needs and education.
Interviews We interviewed Grace Harden, the volunteer coordinator at urban connections. The community garden will be feeding people for years and the bookshelf provides storage space for more books, so that will help the children to learn
The percentage of children enrolled in the last grade of primary education who continue to the secondary level the following year, 2001/02
Childrens Museum where kids play to learn and adults learn to play
Urban Connection-San Antonio is a holistic, faith-based, human and community development organization. "Building Genuine Community, One Person At A Time!"
Our Plan We wanted to: remove the tree stump Give a bookshelf Build a Community garden
Preparing for the Project We had to set up volunteer support, get tools and supplies. We did a needs assessment for Urban Connections and designed our project to fit those needs.
