Tapajos School Project Update

i2P has a mission of educating and inspiring with an end result of EMPOWERING young people to complete their own Extraordinary Acts. Students, classrooms and schools from Expedition Amazon joined together for a common goal; a goal to raise enough funding to complete the construction of a school that will serve 100 children in the community of Taquara, in the Flona Do Tapajos.

Since October 20th of this year, rain has halted progress of the school's construction. As of late the weather has been cooperating, giving locals the ability to return in constructing the school. Below are photos of materials arriving for construction & locals working on the school (even the KIDS are helping out!!!).

Expedition Amazon participants were provided with a challenge to help i2P do some incredible work that will have life-changing qualities. Together students, classrooms and schools followed through and achieved something truly EXTRAORDINARY!
