The Instituto Ruben Barahona Oviedo was founded in 1984. The school serves over 200 students and since its inception they have not had toilets. 9 years ago Professor Omar Sandoval encouraged the students to start a toilet fundraising project. San Jose del Potrero is a small community that primarily consists of poor farmers. In order to raise money students bring items to make food or juices and sell them. They raise money via casual friday’s and bake sales. They are still struggling and could use some financial support so they can finish their project and finally have toilets.

Guggenheim Museum in New York and the former Director of Operations at the Miami Art Museum in Miami, Florida. Ms. Cornely believes that art is healing and revealing. In her own words, we can express with art what we cannot express with words. When we use art to teach others, we help increase their critical thinking skills exponentially. Art can also be a means to generate a revenue source. And when you make art out of trash, everyone benefits.
