Here in Suriname, it is traditionally an uncle who is responsible for putting a child on a successful path towards the future. That is exactly what project Tio Boto, which translates into ‘Uncle’s Boat’, is trying to accomplish. A children's camp situated alongside a tourist camp on the Upper Suriname River, Tio Boto is one of the community's solutions to an ever-increasing rate of drop-outs from the local school.
 
  
This village takes great pride in its school and sees the education of its youth as a priority. However, when it is no longer feasible for the drop-outs to go back to school because they have fallen behind or their families can no longer financially support them, Tio Boto is a sustainable way to give the children skills to be able to make a living for themselves. Through hands-on learning about the growing tourism industry, these otherwise idle youth will be actively engaged in developing business, trade, and life skills. Men and women currently providing services such as bread making and boat making in the community will lend their expertise to the children's camp and be provided with a means of income as well.
+
==Description of Service ==
  
The children are already involved in the beginning stages of the camp's construction by volunteering their time to help build the first tourist houses. Other community members are volunteering their time and machinery to cut and mill the wood required for the construction of the wash houses and latrines which are necessary for the camps to be able to open their doors. The combination of the community's contributions is over 50% of the total cost of the project.
+
==Lessons Learned==
  
Not only will the teachers and concerned parents have a way to continue to give an education to and provide training for their children, but every member of the community will see its community flourish with pride and productivity instead of seeing its potential move away in pursuit of economic opportunities.

Carol Bellamy, (born January 14, 1942), has been Director of the United States Peace Corps, Executive Director of UNICEF, and President and CEO of World Learning.
  
This project endeavors to build sanitary facilities required for the opening of Tio Boto. Without wash houses and latrines for both the tourists and the children, the camps cannot open.
