Technical Institute “La Inmaculada”
La Inmaculada was founded in 1974 with the intention of responding to the rural community. It began as a technical school that prepared young people to become qualified workers in a variety of fields. Today the school serves three stages of education: Pre-K, Primary, and Technical. The curriculum is designed not only to prepare students for higher education, but to allow them the ability to work part time in support of their families. La Inmaculada is the only school of its kind in the area and is dedicated to the formation of good leaders, professionals, and dignified human beings. The primary population served are children and youth with limited economic resources that public institutions often do not reach. La Inmaculada Technical School currently serves approximately 1,200 students and employs 55 teachers and staff.
Water for necessary health and wellness services such as bathrooms and school cleanliness are served from reserve tanks. In the dry season, November through April, these tanks are susceptible to “running dry” leaving not enough water for the aforementioned necessities. As a result, school administration is forced to close school during those days. This causes a disruption in teaching and learning as well as leaving a deficit in an important social asset for students.
The solution to this problem would be a new well to supply the school. Running water would continue to flow in the dry season, meaning school could stay in session without interruption as a result of a lack in water. This would also provide a solution for the foreseeable future, providing the aquifer remains active.
