Welcome to our 50th issue! I can hardly believe that what started out as a spark of an idea and something fun to try, has turned into such a rewarding experience and with such a devoted readership. I am so grateful for those who have been on this journey; some from the beginning, some for a short while, some making guest appearances. Thank you for your insight, perspective and willingness to share a part of yourself. Thank you to our advertisers whose support makes this possible. If you enjoy reading The Eye please be sure and let our advertisers know and support them in turn.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my work at The Eye has been the way we have been able to connect those in need of support with those willing to give it. This year alone we fund-raised three new computers and printers for the Jose Vasconcelos Library, we launched a girls scholarship program called ‘Seguir Estudiando’ in the village of Zimatan and we are currently working on developing a sports program in the same village. Thank you to everyone who has helped out with these endeavors, giving time and financial assistance.
