25 years of growing
This October we reflected on the meaning of our 25 years of work in Guarjila.
Our discernment began with reevaluating the larger vision of the group, looking at our individual goals as well as a collective vision of the future. Two generations ago we began our journey in a small workshop fixing bicycles and learning to ride.
Today our days look very different. We still ride bikes, skate in our famous Tamarindo Garden, develop formational workshops, encourage academic achievement but also are working hard to push our members beyond their imagination or as they say, “think outside the box.”
Our days may be different, but the dream is the same. As we look forward to the next 25 years of the Tamarindo we are consciously seeking ways to deepen our discourse. We hope to begin this next quarter century providing Tamarindas and Tamarindos with not only the resources they need to succeed, but also continue to create an environment of critical thinking and problem solving skills.
This new era of history needs to direct our community way beyond the hills of Guarjila into a world where our generosity, analysis and praxis will be a part of the creation of a new and just society.
