We want to do something meaningful and give our guests the opportunity to participate and MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Our focus is on educating and enriching the lives of elementary children as they are our present and our future. We encourage guests to bring school supplies, bag, books or educational toys and dvds if you have extra luggage space.
We have partnered with the Principal/Teacher of Zion Park Elementary School. Her passion and dedication to her profession and to the children is obvious and overwhelming. Guests always have the opportunity to visit the school themselves and experience the difference one person can make.
If you are not visiting Maruba and want to make a positive educational change, we encourage you to check with the principal of the public school in the area you will visit. Your assistance to make a positive change will be greatly appreciated and an inspiration.
We personally thank all our guests who have brought educational supplies, visited on volunteer vacations and supported our program in any way. Thank you for your support and generosity. Your kinds and commitment is an inspiration to us.
