Bus Hijacked in Guatemala

Bus Hijacking in Guatemala involved a robbery of 13 teenagers and four adults heading to El Salvador on Friday for a service project. The high school students had raised most of the funds to be able to take the trip. Despite what must have been a terrifying event, the teens still want to continue on to help build a school!

Took awhile to find- probably good the Seeds of Learning link wasn't in the news stories, because they would have been slashdotted! Donations by mail are being accepted to help recoup what was taken, and online donations will be set up within a few days apparently.

The small amount of time I spent on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica opened my eyes to the living conditions in Central America. It is exemplary that these teenagers are involved in such an valuable endeavor.
