Intercultural School in Guaporaity

During our stay in Argentina in October 2011 we visited the Guarani Indian village of Guaporaity.

A wooden hut, inside which it was boiling hot and very humid, served as the school in Guaporaity. This school stands in a hollow and is flooded every time it rains.

Despite these uncomfortable conditions the children were happy, lively and hard working. With great enthusiasm they allowed us to join their lessons.

Together with all the children and the villagers we inspected a plot of land for a new school. There we want to build the same school as in Tecoa Miri.

In May 2012 the time has finally arrived and the building of the school has begun. As can be seen here in the pictures, the building work is progressing well.
