Summary

This project aims to build a Meeting Place for the training and development of local actions that make up sustainable and organized societies. It will allow them to hold meetings to deal with the main community problems such as: the defense of fundamental and citizen rights, training in trades, carrying out recreational and cultural activities, receiving primary medical care, holding workshops for the transmission of knowledge, workshops for psychopedagogical support and leveling of children.

Challenge

Specifically in the municipality of Benitez, poverty levels range between 82% and 35% of young people who do not study or have a job. There is evidence of a high level of school desertion among young people over 15 years of age, a high percentage of illiterate people, adolescents without a life project or job opportunities. The region has been stagnant and its inhabitants show hopelessness that is exacerbated by community segregation due to lack of basic services.

Solution

The participatory design and construction of a space for community training and knowledge exchange will allow to develop leadership and community strength. In addition, it will provide the opportunity to exchange knowledge, training opportunities in new trades and skills in tasks that are currently carried out.

Long-Term Impact

These tools will be the catalyst for the upward economic movement of the community. This new meeting place will be a light (in the metaphorical and literal sense) to transcend the harsh reality that the rural communities of the Paria Peninsula face every day.
