BENEFITING: AWAMAKI US
The residents of Huayronccollaccpampa lost their homes and local church in the 2010 floods. Since then, they've been in the slow process of rebuilding by hand using adobe bricks, cement and river stones. Six months ago, the community members approached Awamaki and asked for a playground for their children to play on. Luckily, this group of incredible Austin students made it happen!
In just 5 days, and with the help of the local community, we built, sanded, and painted a platform, slide, swingset, climbing wall and (road)monkey bars. We also cleared and leveled the land around the playground and put in benches so parents and others could visit the playground and make sure the children stay safe.
In all, the project was a huge success! Thank you for your support.
