School Bus Project

We are in urgent need of a school bus to transport students from the Guanin Center to their homes. At this time, some youth must walk long distances from their homes to attend classes and events at the center, without proper shoes and paved roads to walk on. When it rains, the roads can sometimes fill with water, and youth persevere through the puddles, barefoot at times, in order to reach the center.

Without adequate transportation to and from the center, students are also limited to the time of day that they can attend events at the center. Without street lights, youth that live long distances from the center can not participate in the movie screenings that occours outside on a projector. In addition to assisting students to and from the center, a school bus could also serve the purpose of an ambulance. The conditions of the roads in La Piedra make it difficult for most cars to drive to and from the community without difficulty, especially in inclement weather. A vehicle the size of a bus would be an ideal way to transport community members out of La Piedra in case of emergency. The closets hospital to La Piedra is a 45-minute drive from Guanin Center.


A school bus will greatly aid in everyday problems of transportation experienced by people in La Piedra. We are looking to raise enough funds to purchases a school bus that can transport at least _____ youth per day, and additionally serve as an emergency transportation vehicle in the case of medical need.

Administrative Proposal for the Use and Maintenance of the Ambulance:

Ambulance service will be at the disposition of the Centro Cultural Guanín, Inc. Foundation, for the benefit of the entire community and the center´s first aid and medical dispensary. The costs of required fuel and the salary of a permanent ambulance driver will be covered by the Ayuntamiento del Municipio de Guerra (Guerra´s City Council). Centro Guanín will cover the cost of maintenance (including tires, tune-ups, mechanical repairs, etc.) with income generated through monthly payments by its members, cash donations, income earned through various community projects, and other activities and cooperative/collective programs.
