We already imagined the school with the community

Dear Donor,

We want to thank you again for being part of this project. It has been a challenge for our team to take the next step, but today we are closer to building the school for Guaruchal.

With the first $6,000 raised, our team traveled to Guaruchal to develop the Imagining Workshop to design the school with the community. During one week, 30 members of the community between 8 and 40 years old, did a hands-on workshop to design the school in which they considered the school regulations, ventilation, lighting and adaptability of the spaces. The result were three models that represent the school’s complex and the potential phases of the project and another 4 more detailed models to express their ideas for each of the spaces in the school.

Together we determined that the school should include: 2 elementary school classrooms for 20 students, 1 pre-school classroom, 3 bathrooms (1 for girls, 1 boys and 1 for adults), dining hall, a big kitchen, a garden with plants for cooking (oregano, coriander, chives, eggplant, rice, among others), as well as ornamental and medicinal plants (fregoza, tua tua, citronella). Additionally, it will have a park and a sports field, where baseball, volleyball, basketball, and soccer will be practiced.

For the next couple of months, we will be working on the architectural design proposal to have final design blueprints for construction by June 2021. Meanwhile time is running for us to raise the funds to build the school.

Join us this December 1st and be part of #GivingTuesday to help us continue raising bricks to build smiles, hope and a better world.
