Our aim is to have a place for educational and socio-community purposes for these villages. We intend to carry out the rehabilitation of the old school of Vilar, respecting its original structure and with traditional local materials.
We want a place for educational development in a natural space, encouraging and promoting autonomy and critical participation in a direct relationship with nature, responding to the specific needs of children. On the other hand, a space for meeting and community development in which to promote cultural and educational activities for adults that want to grow still.
We mainly undertook this project due to the difficulty of access from our villages to such services, which could be provided by the institutions: we are at an average of one hour from any school, health center, library, etc. For that reason and because of our needs as neighbours, we have decided to solve this disadvantage.
On the other hand, the fact that it is a community and self-managed project motivates us to seek ways of collection, such as this, which do not generate dependence. Our work and motivation is not enough to achieve this project, we need the help of others who want to help us.
Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.
The school of Vilar is a building that has nearly a century of heritage and historical value. Although people who inhabited it kept it with small improvements, right now rehabilitation is necessary.
Reforms to make:
- Replace floor
- Rehabilitate and build windows
- Facilities (photovoltaic electricity , plumbing , wood heating and bathroom)
Why this is important
The project is aimed at those who share our same concerns and problems. Those who know the reality of rural life (especially in Galicia) , those who share an interest in education based on respect for people and their natural rhythms , trust and to learn from each other. We also address those who believe in empowering communities, as a transforming element of social reality .
We also address people that for these or other reasons want to helps us so we can open after nearly a century this school.
Goals of the crowdfunding campaign
The goal is to raise the money necessary to carry out the rehabilitation of the building. Our economies are quite precarious, among other reasons because of the degree of isolation . On the other hand , community and self-managed project features push us to find ways of collection such as this , which do not generate dependence.
The money we ask for is for the purchase of materials and, if we managed optimum, for the payment of skilled labor and to perform more complex tasks , such as facilities. The initial goal is to get 11,216 € , to buy the material to create an habitable place : Replace the floor. Rehabilitate and build windows. Isolate the 1st floor. Put in a wood stove and a bathroom.
If we managed to reach the 23,644 € , we could have a comfortable place with:
photovoltaic electricity installation.
Another source of heat.
Paying skilled labor .
Neighbours linked to the project will do the rest of the labor, together with all those who come to work with us.
The group of people who are behind this project and live in the valley have a lot of communal experience for over 40 years, which today materializes as an association of neighbours, the management of the surrounding mountains in a community basis or communal services. We also organize meetings in relation to agro-ecology, life in rural areas and education, and related activities and workshops. A similar project was the recovery of the old school of Ernes. We learnt a lot about organization as a group since the activity was developed by the own neighbors. The first team had bioconstruction knowledge and other wider team put the workforce. Today this building offers a great sevice for the community (internet, library, first aid, recreational and cultural activities ...).
For the actual project, there are working groups that undertake activities agreed by all in the general assembly: project management, preparation and debris removal work, fundraising and spreading information.
