BUILDING FOR GENERATIONS
October 6, 2010

What Cory Ybarra and Building for Generations has done in 2 countries is my review, and it speaks for itself!! Please read on... In 2006, Building for Generations first project was completed in Tanzania. This three-classroom block was built for children with special needs. In 2007, Cory also added an auditorium to the unit which serves the entire school of 1500 students. All of this was built with the proceeds from non-profit events and work of diligent volunteers. After the horrible earthquake in Peru, Cory traveled to the rural village of Chincha Baja. She saw people living in worn plastic tents in the cold winter and children partially paralyzed, many with respiratory infections. Cory spoke with the mayor and families concerning needs of the village. The most urgent project she found was to build a resource and rehabilitation center. It would be for children who needed speech therapy or physical therapy, or those who had neurological problems. The generous mayor eventually gave Ybarra 300 meters in which to build the center. Her fundraising efforts were rewarded and she was able to complete the project in June 2009
