100 % of the funds raised from ticket sales will go towartds one of our first projects to take form from the Hopkins Master Plan for sustainable tourism, namely the bulilding of a greenhouse at the Holy Family School in Hopkins which will be a working greenhouse in which the kids will learn farming techniques as well as researching exactly what to grow for sale to the village and the resorts. This will be an income producing greenhouse and with the aid of instructors from the internation group IICA (Inter-American Institute for Cooperation in Agriculture), will provide money for needed school items. A portion of the the proceeds will also go towards purchasing basic firefighting equipment for the vilolage, which will be house at the new Police Station, which is another BTIA project from the master plan.
