International Incident Service Project Revealed – Help Needed!

The String Cheese Incident is coming to the Riviera Maya to playa at the new Hard Rock Hotel February 19-23. While they are here the SCI International Incident will be teaming up with Conscious Alliance to give back to our local community in Akumal and the group is inviting 15 concert attendees to join in the fun with a wonderful public service day at Hekab Be Library!

Anne Gabbert

As the village of Akumal grows and more tourists come to the area, the urban sprawl has reached the little library that sits on a prime piece of land on the road into Akumal. The Library needs to relocate their beloved “cancha” or sports field, where the children practice and play basketball, soccer, and other activities. The back area of the Hekab Be Biblitoteca land is overgrown with weeds and trees, and is gathering rainwater. The goal is to clear the land, build it up to appropriate level, fill it in with material, and relocate the basketball goals to make it an adequate play space for the children.

The library is almost ready for their arrival but they still need to acquire funding for or donations of materials (truckloads of dirt, sand, and gravel, posts for new basketball goals, and concrete/cement mix) in order to complete this project. Service project date is Thursday, February 20th — right around the corner! Please contact Anne at for more information and to find out ways you can help.
