The project's aims are to improve the children's diet and the quality of education that they currently receive. The first stage of the project, partially funded by the UNWG Vienna, has been completed and involved the construction of a greenhouse, sheds for raising animals, and a small room to house the teachers. The next phase, to be completed in 2014, will involve the complete modernization of the school's infrastructures. Getting an education in the Andes is not easy: a lot of children have to walk for hours just to get to school every morning. Have a look at the video to see for yourself.
