Carania, Peru -- Social work by university students

From the 2nd to the 13th of January, 2011, the Los Andes Cultural Center organized a work camp for university students in Carania, in the province of Yauyos, located at 3,500 meters (11,500 feet). This activity forms part of a broader project to assist development in that part of the Andes, organized by the Valle Grande Rural Institute and the Zabalketa NGO. The twenty university students taking part helped dig a mile-long trench for pipes that will carry water to the community. With the help of people from the Carania area, and despite the adverse weather, the project was completed successfully.
