The community of El Varillal takes special pride in their community elementary school. Although few are educated themselves, the residents here value the education of their children and actively work to improve the school and the opportunities for the children. The community asked for help to build a fence around their school for security and because they wanted to start a community garden and needed to keep animals away. MHM agreed to provide the money for the materials while the people of the community provided the labor. A beautiful fence is the result of this partnership.
