Zykuta School Pre Build

Welcome to the Sierra Nevada Region of Colombia.  Our next school project is within the indigenous community of Jewrwa serving 57 students.  This rural community has limited access along with a heavy rainy season which caused serious problems with the infrastructure of the school.  

Part of our Luna Gourmet philosophy is to work with our farming communities to ensure that we are partnering to support the biggest community need.  One of the student's teachers (pictured below) told us that the structure of the school has heavy moisture damage.  The walls are full of moisture and when it rains more the walls soak up the moisture and make the learning space cold.  We all agree that we need to fix this space.

Our project started in September of 2021 but remember that rainy season we mentioned?  It was especially heavy this year and our project got delayed for for several months while we waited for the access to clear up.  See below for the team working on the road.

 

Please check in for more updates as we work on completing the school in 2022.
