Last Monday, 31st of March 2008, the IKO, Dream and IKO volunteer instructors successfully launched a new project aimed at teaching Dominican children how to kiteboard!
Dream Project volunteer instructor Pablito has been teaching children how to swim for a few months so they would be ready to learn how to kite. More than 6 IKO instructors volunteered for the job. The kids have been split in small groups and the IKO instructors will take turns with them every week for 2 hours.
The volunteers are: Jonathan Robert, Cornelio Perez Burgos, Juan Carlos Morel, Miguel Soler, Lilo, Alex Soto, Jose Louis, and IKO Examiner Jon Dodds. The IKO will give out IKO Assistant Instructor packs for free for the kids that are over 15 so that they can train as Assistants in 6 months time (once they know how to kite), giving them the opportunity to get a job as assistant instructors in IKO affiliated centers in Cabarete.
