We visited Palo Seco in 2003 and we were moved by the needs of the people in the community, so much so, we decided to unofficially adopt the community. Palo Seco is a recipient of the Back to School + Christmas project. Over the last 17 years, we have built 6 homes and gave them to families living in the community. We also lead an initiative to teach women how to successfully farm on their land. During the farming project we set-up a temporary nursery so the women in the community could attend the program. There is still a lot to be done, and we continue to work in this community.
