Student Residence under Construction

Student Residence under Construction

When I visited Oaxaca, Mexico, in February 2009 the student residence was well underway. Under Saul’s leadership many volunteer groups from the U.S. and the U.K had worked over two summers in the construction. The indigenous Indian high school students living in the temporary residences in Oaxaca City worked every weekend and in most of their spare time on this exciting project. This residence lies on land purchased by Armonia with contributions from individuals, churches, and Armonia U.S. Inc in the U.S. and Armonia U.K in the United Kingdom. The land lies in a valley with mountains in the background. Water for the residence comes from springs in the mountains above. There is ample land for more than one student residence as the high school education program grows. In addition land is being set aside to grow various crops to enhance food production and to teach new agricultural technics to students who may wish to return to their native villages with new productive ideas
