Project

Uvita Surf School provides surf and community service programs. It works with the community school to look for projects and needs so it can help to improve the community. Some of its main goals are to provide opportunities for service learning, cultural exchange, awareness building, and language enhancement. It also works to foster feelings of productivity, reflection, and self-development in students and the community.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 29, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
