Descripción: 

In the context of poverty and critical shelter problems that prevail in Reparto David Andino, this project proposed to improve 30 houses for the poorest of poor. SELAVIP visited the Miunicipality and the families before the construction started, and could see that the selection was well done. Decissions were made with the technical team in charge as to how to continue working with a strategy that would enhance participation and technical assistance by the Municipality. The professional staff of the local government was to be in charge of construction, and they had creative plans to complete the project. Volunteers from local universities would also contribute with the families and their leaders in a very dynamic building process. We were informed that they completed 16 houses and will report in the next days. Contact: Enrique José Saravia alcaldia.chinandega@gmail.com
