Queretero (Mexico) -- Thirteen years of rural development

A group of fifteen university women has added another link to the chain of rural development programs in the Sierra Gorda organized for the last thirteen years by the Amay Club in Queretero.

The project’s main objective is to provide social services to those in need, while giving the students an opportunity to grow humanly and spiritually.

This year the project took place in the village of Temascales, with the assistance of a group of young women from Canada.

Each morning the young women taking part gathered in a local school. There the tasks for the day were explained and catechism classes for children and their mothers were held.

The construction of drying ovens for fruit proved the most difficult part of the project. Many of the girls learned how to use spades, hammers and wheelbarrows for the first time.

The work days ended with the celebration of Mass in the recently refurbished village chapel.
