This Centennial College Global Citizenship Equity Learning Experience (CGELE) consisted of the construction of a two-classroom school in an impoverished community in the mountains overlooking Cusco Peru. As the project guide, Francis developed and managed the project and its budget and provided construction safety training to the eight students and two staff members. Work involved excavation of soil, construction of cinder block walls and plastering of those walls. This project, a collaborative effort between Centennial College, Maximo Nivel (a local volunteer agency) and community members challenged our understanding of project delivery, construction methods and architectural design. Throughout the two-week duration of the project, we learned about community dynamics (every person in the community must help build a portion of the school), non- traditional funding arrangements (the government will only pay for a teacher if the community is able to build the school) and the values of the community and its children.
