THE SCHOOLS

There are seven schools on the Southern Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica where children are suffering from respiratory, skin and eye infections due to the toxic road dust. The Pave the Road Initiative continues to be a voice for the community and has succeeded in inspiring  municipal and national government to pave the school roads to protect the children in their open air schools.
