Mission517 visits a rural school every year. For a whole week missioners spend time painting the selected school (more pictures to come) and prepare the facility for the new scholar year. Although the length of the trip is about 10 days, most of the luggage taken by missioners is full of school supplies for the kids. At the end of the week, students are welcome back to their “better looking” facility as they receive a bag-pack full of all kind of school supplies. This project has been going on for almost 10 years now. It has been another way of helping the community of tamarindo besides providing free healthcare at the same time. As a result, every year people await for Mission517 to come back because they know that help and hope come along.
