Larcacunga gets a new kitchen in Ecuador

Finishing touches have been made to the renovated kitchen and bodega up at Larcacunga. Work started over the summer to move the kitchen and create a new storeroom. With money kindly donated by past volunteers the parents have been able to remodel the kitchen to provide running water and a sink.

There is also now plenty of storage for the fresh food brought up each week for the kids’ colada and lunch. The back room is now the school bodega (‘storeroom’) and houses dried goods and a variety of teaching resources. Thank you to those that have raised the extra money to enable us to improve the facilities at Larcacunga!
