I'm told that there will now be more than crafts as well......

I will be there with my 'fundraiser' for

San Juan Cosala Prepa Scholarships for kids with A grades.
Kids coming out of second aria who have worked hard to achieve grades do not have access to funds for high school. The kids with 'A' grades have the best chance of starting and completing high school.

I have 6 kids to whom I've committed 3 years of funding to get them through High School (Prepa). The commitment is to work with the family as a unit to get these kids through graduation.

The students were selected because they had the top grades coming out of secondaria (Junior High) from San Juan Cosala. Grades they had, money they didn't.

Public education here is not 'free.' In order for the kids to continue, there are bus fares to/from Joco, admission fees for each semester, in some cases monthly 'fees', books, computer time at the cyber cafes for those without computers (most of the kids), supplies, uniforms, sports shoes/clothes, etc.

Out of the 6 kids, one would have gone on for sure.... the others, probably not. In two of the families, there are 2 kids in Prepa at the same, which is a challenge for the families.

All the proceeds from the craft fare go directly to supporting the scholarships. I donate all the materials and my time.

Stop by.... and if you are interested in starting the same type of scholarship project where you live, I'd be glad to share my lessons learned.

I understand there is still space for vendors of their own crafts or food products.

The Hole in One is a very tall structure going East from San Antonio/Riberas area, on the right. Upstairs is a golfing practice range and restaurant.
Downstairs is a open parking garage where the craft fair is taking place.
They also have a Monday food and craft market there.
