Two Wheels, One Love!

Very excited to announce the Oracabessa Foundation has just confirmed a US$67,000 grant from the Fetzer Institute in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Funds will be used to design the Two Wheels, One Love programme which will develop a curriculum incorporating principles of love and forgiveness into a structured BMX learn-to-ride programme. The curriculum will be rolled out to 5 primary schools immediately surrounding the Eden Park BMX Track, culminating in a Two Wheels, One Love race series at the track for those students 'graduating' through all 6 levels of the programme. Our goal is to teach 250 area youth about love and forgiveness while getting them onto the BMX track.

The Oracabessa Bay Fish Sanctuary passed a MAJOR milestone over the weekend. We planted our 2,000th coral in Oracabessa Bay! Funded through the Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme, we’ve been at work on the project for a little over 2 years. Big day for both the Sanctuary and the Foundation!
