Project Description: The Ecological and Healthy School Initiative encompasses the design and construction of the Pitagoras School Park and of a new classroom building with 10 modular classrooms. Both designs incorporate numerous sustainable building strategies including the use of locally sourced materials, a grey water filtration system, and a clay pot drip irrigation system used historically by the Incas.
