    More seats means more support at Centro Arte Para La Paz

    Day 187

    Space for More

    At Centro Arte Para La Paz, Sister Peggy has helped to turn one small art center into a proper tourist attraction. People from all over the region – and the world! – come to learn at the museum, see works of art in their gallery, and eat delicious meals at their cafe.

    The cafe is an important part of the center. Not only because it keeps visitors full and happy, but also because the profits from the cafe are reinvested back into the center. The more papusas and rice people order, the more art can be made!

    But they’re always running into one problem. “We don’t have enough tables and chairs!” said Sister Peggy. “If we could fit more people inside, it would help with our profits.”

    More tables and chairs to help keep this incredible place alive? No problem!

    We went out and purchased three long tables and enough chairs to almost double the amount of people who could sit comfortably at the cafe.

    The art center is a special place. And anything we could do to help more people share in the joy they create, the better!
