We are still in the planning phase and looking for sponsors to cover the expenses, because we want to offer the classes more affordable for the children of San Pedro. Carlos Perrote will provide various percussion instruments to each participant, which will be shipped on the barge from Belize City courtesy of our sponsor, the CARIBBEAN QUEEN.
Still we are looking for a two bedroom condominium with kitchen for Carlos Perrote and his three children to stay from July 19 till August 12., preferable near the SPHS, or the funds to cover these expenses. (Anyone wishing to help kindly contact Ms. Elisabeth Hobarth)
