Zacango tiene un periodico!!!! Zacango has a newspaper!!!

One of the most exciting things that we're a part of in Zacango right now is working together with a group of young adults to produce a newspaper for the community! The paper will come out monthly and is still nameless as the inaugural issue included a contest to help name the paper. There are few opportunities for people to obtain reading material here so the newspaper will serve as a way to increase literacy skills, build community pride, and serve as a forum to talk about water issues.
Here is a collage of the reporter's profile pictures from the paper. From top left: Estela, Gabriela and Maricruz, Doricela. From bottom left: Blanca and Selene, Hilario, Rocio and Rosa, Cristina (with Betual and Antonio...Cristina reports on kids events in the community and has a kids contest page).
