Movies for the volunteers

Finally there is a project which works the other way around. Santa Anita has given the volunteers a belated Christmas-present. The community now offers something for the evenings to the volunteers staying in “la casa grande”: A neat selection of 41 movies and 13documentaries. Movies from all genres from biographies to science fiction, allow everyone to find something interesting.

Besides that, the “Rodrigo Asturias” internet café celebrates its one year anniversary. The computers were a generous donation in January 2009 from a Boston group that frequently helps and visits the community of Santa Anita. Since the opening of the internet café, Santa Anita has been connected to the world even more and the people of Santa Anita no longer have to go to Colomba to access the internet. Six computers are available and various teenagers volunteer there to offer service throughout the day. Still, the people of Santa Anita – especially the kids – have yet to get used to computers and the benefits the internet can offer. For this reason a volunteer from Xela offers computer classes every Friday.
