Today I attended the placements that were located in Pacifico De Villa. The placements that were offered to participants in the Pacifico De Villa were construction, teaching at the kindergarten called Pronoei and working with the Youth in Action after school English program. The placements all came with their own challenges but the participants were able to overcome most of them with a smile on their face. One of the challenges that Melissa Thompson had to overcome was that at her placement in Pronoei,”[she] was in the 3 years old class and [she] found that you really need to have patience because not only is their a language barrier but also they have very short attention spans.” In the construction placement it was amazing how quickly and efficiently the Peruvian men worked on the demolition of the washroom. Brad Hertog stated, “The amount of work that the Peruvians accomplished in such a short period of time was amazing and the fact that they accomplished it without the help of power tools is unbelievable.” It was a great first day of placements that was not challenges but it looked like participants learned a lot. The participants are currently eagerly preparing for their second day of placements.
