I look forward to an amazing new year and to the growth of our existing programs and to the creation of new ones.

The future of Todos Santos is in the hands of its children. It is my commitment to the Palapa Society to do everything possible to help educate and enlighten the future leaders of our town. We can not vary that course. All of us at the Palapa Society invite you to come and see for yourselves how you can help make a difference in the lives of our children, because that is what it’s all about.

Great News ! - Thanks to your generous contributions the children of the migrant agriculture camps La Pastora and Santa Cruz had a very joyful Easter weekend. We were able to distribute food, clothing, fruit and a few sweets to every family. As Human Rights volunteers we have also brought the needs of these camps to the attention of the heads of different state departments (education,health,sanitation, DIF congress and many others) who all came last Thursday to inspect the sad conditions under which these hard-working families live. Needless to say they heartily pledged their support. As this goes to print there is already a school room in operation at Pastora Monday through Friday from 8-4pm run by a special program for migrant children provided by the state. Santa Cruz is next. Classroom on Wheels has also been providing a pre-school program as well as food and clothing. The children are avid learners and many can already count,spell,write their names and brush their teeth with joy. It is heartwarming to see that our collective efforts are helping to improve the way in which these camps will be operating. Thank you all!!! - Euva Anderson, horsejunkies [-at-] hotmail.com, 612 15 80489/624 14 16881, Todos Santos

What Does Earth Day Mean To You? - Happy Earth Day! Since 1970, we have been celebrating. Now it’s time to act. The recycling eco-education team, now called the Brigada Verde TS, (Todos Santos Green Brigade) is planning to re-open the recycling center, and since community involvement is the success of any grassroots project, we are looking for others to join us. Our Earth Day message is this: Plastic bags are killing marine animals and birds, are an ubiquitous part of the landscape and are banned in 100’s of communities, and as of March 2010, Mexico City as well. We need to stop using them altogether. The 4 – 16 – 64 – 256 bag pyramid strategy is our first ACTION. Sew, buy (local) from Manos Magicos, or borrow 4 bags and give them to 4 people, who in turn will aquire 4 bags and give them to 4 people, etc. In time there will be 1000’s of bags in circulation.
