At 3pm on Friday, November 16 2012 at Azuero Earth Project, interns Pedro and Enita Cerrud  organized a “Painting and Movie Night”, attended by 42 people, including students from Pedasi High School, Instituto Plinio A. Moscoso y members of the community. The youth painted recycling bins, resulting in a lottery in which participants won t-shirts and maps of the Project.

In recognition of all their help, Pedro and Enita offered participants a free meal of lasagna and garlic bread with refreshed that everyone enjoyed!

After the dinner, the interns showed the movie: “Horton Hears a Who”(2008), with popcorn and refreshments for the movie viewers. The movie tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a tiny world of “who” people living on a flower and decides to protect it, despite the fact that his community do not believe it exists.
