35) Doing international service on spring break


A group of PSU Brandywine students are spending spring break in Santiago, a Mayan village on Lake Atitlan in the highlands of Guatemala.  This year the students will be leading reading activities in the new children's library and working in a rural pre-school.  They also anticipate planting trees in an area where mudslides caused much damage and death during Hurricane Stan in Fall 2005  In addition, they are possibly participating in a garbage processing project and in a research project which is studying causes of and remedies for lake contamination.
