It has been almost two weeks since we arrived to Puyo, Ecuador and started our wonderful experience. As many of you know, our mission is to support the children and families of the Ecuadorian Amazon by improving infrastructure and participating in community development.
The project was divided into two teams: The first team (my team) is focusing on the subjects of Health and Hygiene– our mission is to build a restroom at one of the local schools (Esfuerzo)and provide health and hygiene awareness. We’ve been working on the restroom for a week already; it’s almost done and ready to be used!
The second group is going to focus on planting a garden at another local school, called Chuya Yaku, in order to make vegetables and fruits available for the school community.
With regard to our host families, they’ve been very welcoming and supportive. We get to learn about their cultural ways, taste real ecuadorian food; It’s a good cultural emergence =).
