Esperanza runs a small fruit and vegetable business and works for the Casa Guatemala shop (which helps support their children’s village) selling dairy and meat products. She combines the two, two days a week taking to the water in the Casa Guatemala launch with stock from both. Anybody who has lived in the tropics knows how harsh the sun is and when the Rio Dulce community saw Esperanza and her crew out in it all day they decided they needed some protection.
Pass It On gathered the materials together from our generous community and Tim and Pam, professional sail makers, from the schooner Pamela Anne designed and made it. At the same time it was suggested that Esperanza needed a hand held VHF to announce the boat’s arrival at the various locations it visits. That too was donated and repaired and a battery charger and batteries too.
This is another example it taking a community, thank you everybody.
