Rio Grande Abajo Community Project

Live with a local family in rural Rio Grande Abajo, a small community that relies on an agriculturally-based economy. Students will work on projects that are run in cooperation with the Peace Corps to fulfill community needs. One large project is building stoves. Other projects include work to enhance local, sustainable development such as composting and recycling. For groups that have the skills, larger construction projects are also available. Groups are encouraged to donate Spanish books and technical equipment to the community’s new library and computer lab. (Included on your tour — no additional cost)
