El Yaz community experiences beautiful spring temperatures and is rich in soil and known for its clean water. The community is a great agricultural paradise but the people are struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table. Many of the villagers have a hard time even finding a low paying job and live in poverty and unsanitary conditions. They have no form of hot water, transportation, or protein sources to add to their daily diets.
Globe Aware Volunteers will work on an organic farm and will learn and work closely on reforestation, permaculture, and environmental issues. Some of the projects completed by our volunteers are repairing bridges, fences, painting school, planting trees and gardens, providing environmental education and conservation, working on solar cooking projects, and installing new water pipe system to bring new clean water source into community.
