Conclusion of School Flooding Remediation Project – Mexico
This project has been completed under the direction of Tamara Brennan, Ph.D., Executive Director of Sexto Sol. To read about the beginning of this project, CLICK HERE.
The project called for the installation of rain gutters on the roofs of the classrooms as a means to alleviate the seasonal flooding at the Escuela Primaria “Estado de Colima, in El Male’ Chiapas, Mexico.
We installed the rain gutters with the very generous help of two volunteers who worked with Francisco Barrios of Sexto Sol. They worked for three days during what was the most frigidly cold weather in years. Several parents helped them over the course of the installation and in the follow-up trips to the community to finish up.
The welder who made the materials donated three days of work with his equipment, which was very generous of him. We had the expert help of a volunteer named David King, who has build skyscrapers in Florida.
Tamara expressed the gratitude of all involved in providing for this major improvement. The school, the community, and Sexto Sol are continuing to seek additional funding to upgrade and maintain the system.
