The Friend’s Centre – Centro de Amigos

Friends of Cabrera, Inc. and Faro de Cabrera, SRL have, together, occupied a new education community centre in Cabrera. This two story building with bright, airy spaces, a completely enclosed property and almost 1 acre of green space of which opens directly to access the community baseball field and elementary public school makes us very excited about the potential here.

The work has just begun, would you like to help?  We hope to build a basketball court, are in need of outdoor night lighting and to create pathways and play spaces that are not muddy. Perhaps organic gardening is your interest and you can help us build a compost and equip a growing learning center? Or maybe you are inspired to develop a children’s playground? Any talent or resource you can share becomes an important part of the Friend’s Center for the enjoyment of the community.

Please let us know what talent or resource you can share by reaching out to contact@friendsofcabrera.org
