    Project

    The Gigante Little School is a one-room pre-school that supports 15 children ages 4 through 10 years old. The children are eager to learn, but they lack school supplies, not to mention water, decent toilets and playground equipment. By bringing them school supplies and donating our time, the Aqua staff is creating a safe zone where the students can enjoy learning and being children. Most importantly, we are helping the future of each child open up to more! We hope that by Aqua’s contribution, the children here will experience at least one place where they are not struggling for the basics in life.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of August 7, 2020

    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.
