San Narciso is a village located in the northern Corozal district, and home to our “why”. The central focus of the population is among the school and church, which are centered in the middle of the village. The community is active and bustling with people willing to help one another at any time. San Narciso is home to palm trees and coconuts, chickens, and frozen chocolate covered banana stands. It’s also impoverished, and its inhabitants struggle significantly. By focusing on assisting the school, we help everyone in the community.
