El Limonal

We started SuNica after witnessing kids picking through trash in the middle of a school day. It changed our lives, and we have been learning and growing ever since. The community is situated adjacent to a trash dump, wastewater plant, and a graveyard. Since 2015, the community has upgraded from dirt roads, plastic or make-shift shanty homes, no electricity, and no septic system to having paved roads with curbs and gutters, legitimate electricity, sewers, and block homes making it one of the most unique places where we work.
