We would like to show our appreciation and gratitude to West Demerara Secondary school for supporting us and continuing the Health Family Life Education curriculum. Taylor Laskowski and I facilitated the World Map mural project to support participants interest in geography as well as to support the notion of global citizenship and world peace. Taylor and I made sure that the mural project closely coincided with a lesson about safe environmental practices.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank FROG Friends & RPCVs of Guyana non-profit organization for supporting World Map mural project. In addition, we would like to give a special thanks to Headmaster Sir Harry and social studies teacher Ms. Phulmattie, and faculty, staff and students at W.
