    Avila Beach Hotel

    Project #1

    The Schotborgh School is a community school serving 200 students from 4 through 13 years old. The Schotborgh School is in a disadvantaged neighborhood. As a school they try to make the day as educational and pleasant as possible for them. The school also tries to stimulate their social talents.

    Project #2

    Kolegio Don Sarto is located in the small village of Soto, northwest of Curacao on the tip of the St. Martha Bay. The project will benefit all 175 children from ages 4 through 13 years old of this primary school.

    Project #3

    The Pedro Luis Brion School is a community school serving students from 4 through 13 years old. The Pedro Luis Brion school was burned out partly in 2020 and is a short 3-minute ride away from the Avila Beach Hotel. This public school exists over 70 years and has a very diverse range of kids from all backgrounds and ethnicities. But they all form a unit nevertheless.

    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. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    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.
