Teresa Cedeño, Jacqueline Guzman, Lydia Gaibor and Arelis Beltran led a workshop on the production of chemicals and nutrition. Arelis has a volunteer for the Crusade For a New Humanity Foundation for several years and decided to take this opportunity to perform community service work.
People in the Nueve Esperanza area (Isla Trinitaria) had total freedom to attend the workshop for these students of the faculty of chemistry at the University of Guayaquil. “This can be used as financial aid because we teach them how to make products they can sell. Last week we made insect repellent and floor disinfectant, today we’ll make shampoo,” said Lydia.
“We’re assuming the cost of the workshop, anyone can attend because it’s free. They watch us make the product and then we give a bit of the final result to each,” says Jacqueline.
At least 20 people, mostly women, attended workshops taught by the university students for over a month as part of their hours of social work. The students requested to help the Crusade for a New Humanity Foundation, through a letter from the university in order to have a space where to give their classes to people in the community.
