NEW CAFETERIA CONSTRUCTION at
“JUAN BAUTISTA LOPEZ CHIMBO”
Recipient Country: Ecuador
Town: Puni – Bocana
Village: Puerto Misahualli
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT
The purpose of this project is to build a cafeteria for the school “Juan Bautista Lopez Chimbo,” which was established on October 20, 1976. Currently there are more than 120 students enrolled, between the ages of 3-15 years old.
At present food is prepared outdoors, where the kitchen staff cannot ensure minimum hygiene standards are met.
The school aims to improve the conditions of which the students are subjected to and who are forced to eat outside of the classroom regardless of the weather conditions. These conditions attract an accumulation of food debris and dirt that considerably worsens the minimum hygiene conditions, consequently affecting the academic performance of students.
The cafeteria will be built in front of the school as it has its own grounds.

To date local businesses and non-profits have donated to this cause and the building process has started. But to continue with construction and complete this project we need PUBLIC DONATIONS.
The goal is to raise $10,000.00 to complete this project
