These are the experiences of our volunteers in Peru.

April 23, 2010: The Last Work Day in Huancayo.

Posted in Peru on April 26, 2010

Day 13 was our last work day and we were all determined to finish as much work as we could! More bricklaying, filling forms, cleanup, and cutting rebar (500 pieces) rounded out our day! Ultimately, we were able to complete most of the structural work for the second level! The trench is also ready to go and we’ve prepped rebar for the next round of construction.

We also took a string of photos with our host partners and said goodbye. It is amazing how quickly our two weeks passed but we’re all really proud of what we accomplished and are looking forward to seeing the next steps! We also feel really lucky to have worked with such amazing people here in Peru. From our construction teachers to our host partner translators to waitresses we met at local restaurants, we have been treated royally and built lasting friendships. This truly was a memorable and fantastic experience.
