This is an ideal project for those who want to work at the grass root level within a community and ‘getting their hands dirty’ for a much needed facility for Le Morne. Your first project would be on constructing a public day care center for toddlers. Artistic talent with a brush & colours, design oriented thinking can be challenged with functional additions that increase the cognitive & perceptual functions in the playroom, removing outer layers of paint for a new coat, a small little garden could light up the day care centre, animal & marine wildlife depictions, design & art from various sources, carpentry , polishing are a few of many  avenues through which you can help the communities.
