Guayaquil, (Ecuador) -- Social Work in the Delta School

Six girls from the Delta School carried out a project to improve the infrastructure of a small school in “Palo de Iguana,” one of the poorest neighborhoods in Guayaquil. It arose from a school program called “Creativity, Action, Service.” After considering various places, this one was chosen because of the obvious poverty of the pupils, who lacked basic services of hygiene and drinkable water, etc. Both the school and the homes around it are built of cane with a dirt floor. The work consisted in cleaning and painting the classrooms and constructing bathrooms. It also involved constructing a cistern and elevated tank and pump

To obtain the materials, the girls from the Delta School undertook various activities that generated donations from individuals and businesses. A group of mothers helped with the transportation of the students and materials. To inaugurate the improvements at the small school, the local mayor made an appearance. The next step will be the construction of a recreation and sports area.
