Description: August 2011 was full of extra-curricular activities for the boys of Casa Jose Maria and Casa Mariano:
* Capoeira. The US-based Ale’ Ale’ Foundation gave a workshop on the Brazilian art of Capoeira. The boys participated in the warm-ups and stretching, then faced off to compete with high kicks and fluid movements. Thanks Ale' Ale'! (www.alealefoundation.org)
* Pulsera competition. The US-based Pulsera Project sponsored a day of activities including games, a soccer match, and a Pulsera competition. The boys of Si a la Vida joned other from Los Quinchos and played hard all day. Thanks Pulsera Project! (www.pulseraproject.org)
* Painting. Using left over materials and paint from the construction of Casa Mariano, the boys re-painted two walls of the computer room with a mural and a free-for-all experiment. Our new computer room is filled with color and imagination!
