A BARPCV community grant
For two months over the summer, three students from the University of California, Berkeley, lived in the barrio of Las Cumbres 3 in Aguascalientes, Mexico, to create a youth empowerment center. Las Cumbres 3, a small community in Augascalientes, is a collection of 300 families who illegally built shacks along privately owned land and settled. The area is not recognized as a community by the state, and therefore receives few resources. For the two months in which the three college students from the U.S. visited, 18 students ages 13-15 worked with the Berkeley students on education and life skills. Most importantly, the students worked together to think of sustainable projects that they could implement in their communities, to make a small impact on where they live.
