“I am proud to announce that Indira Santos has been selected as a WO International Center Fellow by the Punahou School. We are very excited about the opportunity to have her join us on campus…” read the letter from Emily McCarren the Director of the Wo International Center.
Indira Santos is the Environmental coordinator at Entreamigos and responsible for spearheading the Recicla San Pancho recycling program, managing all sustainability initiatives of the organization and recently has authored and designed two new education initiatives (the Bote Bio-divertido and the theater project, “De la Cuna a la Tumba”) that are being implemented in schools across the region.
Her fellowship includes a month long learning exchange on the campus of the Punahou School in Honololu, Hawaii. The school, with 4000 students is one of the largest and most respected in the country with a list of famous graduates including U.S. President Barack Obama. The Punahou school and Entreamigos are located on the same latitude, sharing much of the same flora and fauna, weather and tourism challenges, making them a perfect match for sharing environmental education strategies.
Indira is the motor and the magic behind Entreamigos and although we will miss her while she is away, we look forward to the benefits that this exchange will bring to the organization and the San Pancho community.
