Non-Profit in the Spotlight: The Manaus Fund, Part 4
There are two traveling pre-schools in the Roaring Fork Valley -- in the form of short buses. El Busesito is the name for each of these buses. They currently provide 3-hours of pre-school time for 90 children in Carbondale and Glenwood Springs. Early childhood education is one the goals for the Valley Settlement Project, a project focused on incorporating and encouraging immigrant and low-income communities in the Roaring Fork Valley. The project is run by The Manaus Fund.
