UPYA Housing Model Construction Started!

First stage, soil studies
First stage, soil studies

October arrived, and we have great news for all our supporters: We have started the UPYA project construction!

It's been already two weeks since we started our site work, and  it has been intense and enriching.  We have been preparing the site, demolishing the previous house, supporting Pacho and his family to move and..... started foundation. Pacho's family, friends and neighbors are helping actively this stage and FEM is supporting with all technical needs through the engagement of our volunteering network. 

As you can see in the following images, we have received great support from students and professionals, not only in the preparing stages (soil studies, architectural and engineering stages), but also, we have received labor support from architectural students !

UPYA is becoming real, so help us spread the word so we can reach our $10,000 goal very soon!
