Another Community work Day, Prepping for New Stadium..

with one comment

These take place every couple weeks around here.  Collaborative work days to build or maintain something of community significance.  Families are pretty much required to send at least one member to dig, haul, plant, trench, nail, cut; and spend time working on these projects…  Maybe it’s one of those things that makes rural Peru a bit special: I can’t really see this type of community work organizing happening in the USA.  Maybe I’ll try it in a small random neighborhood in the states..knock door to door and let the families know that they have to take off work random days every 2 or 3 weeks and ‘volunteer’ to come out and dig trenches or haul rocks with many of your neighbors.  Something tells me that wouldn’t fly…especially with soo much of the population being reluctant to serve jury duty, and there you get paid a stipend don’t have to haul 80-100 lbs sacks of dirt and rock.

Here in the annex of Huascazala neighbors are prepping this soccer spectator area to be torn down, leveled, then built back up with stadium seats and a very high durable roof to protect against the constant rain.
