Conclusion of Women’s Community Center Project – Paraguay
This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Matthew Lebon. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.
The project was to complete the water and sanitation portions of a community effort to build a women’s community center in this rural community in Paraguay.
The project resulted in the construction of a facility with a kitchen, bathroom, electricity, running water, and necessary supplies for the women to use to develop business opportunities, including a bakery.
The Water Charity contribution specifically allowed for water to be provided in the kitchen for drinking, cooking, and cleaning, and in the bathroom, for sanitary and hygiene purposes.
The project served as an educational experience for the women’s group, and its successful conclusion added to their confidence to be able to proceed to develop new economic endeavors.
Approximately 100 people directly benefited from this project. Hundreds more, including the families of the participating women, will indirectly benefit from the revenue-gaining ventures in which the women will now be able to participate.
We extend our thanks to Matthew for successfully completing this project.
We again wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for this project.
