Project Selection Criteria & Knowledge Assessment Results Reynosa, Mexico Santa Cruz, Peru Camisea, Peru
Criteria Assessments- Camisea Limited familiarity with client, work scope, and site characteristics - Lack of Information Limited local communication and transportation infrastructure - Isolated Living and Working sites Limited availability of local health facilities and services - Isolated Living and Working sites Regional political instability/violence - Shining Path (Armed Communist Movement) - Protests against Oil Firms in Peru by local people Challenges with local vernacular language - Native people speak different language
Peruvian Facts: History, Language and Culture Bordered by Ecuador and Colombia to the North, Brazil to the East, Bolivia to the Southeast, and by Chile to the South Achieved independence in 1821 from Spain Capital: Lima Population is multiethnic including Amerindian, mestizo, white, black, Japanese, Chinese Official languages: Spanish, Quecha Native language of Camisea: Machiguenga
Peruvian Facts: History, Language and Culture In Peru, it is polite to keep your hands (not the elbows) above the table. Good manners include eating all the food that is provided. Meals are considered leisure conversations, so it is important to talk during a meal. Conversations with Peruvians take place at a closer distance than those with Westerners. Stepping back is disrespectful. The traditional welcome in a Peruvian home is “Estas en tu Casa,” which translates to “You are in your house.” Refreshments are usually offered, though it is not impolite to decline them.
Peruvian Facts: History, Language and Culture 92.9% of the total population is literate 96.4% of males 89.4% of females (CIA’s definition of literacy: age 15 and over can read and write) Average age to finish school: 14 years old for both males and females ***The school in Santa Cruz serves secondary students.***
Multi-Year Plan We will assess needs for more classroom space and toilets, as well as other needs of the community during implementation of the distribution system. If need exists and if the risk does not change, we will begin planning for second part of the project.
Maintain distribution system with community help feeding all control to them, but if they need help, still remaining in contact. Hopefully all needs will be able to be met by community members in this situation.

Known Funding Opportunities
Plan of Action In Case of Emergency 1. Mild Cases: ex. Cuts, minor bruises Treated with a first-aid kit and team member with CPR/first-aid training. 2. Severe Cases: ex. Any kind of emergency such as broken bones, tropical diseases. Go to nearest clinic or hospital qualified enough to treat the problem. 3. Grave Cases: ex. Any kind of disease or injury that cannot be treated at a local hospital. Travel to a city hospital such as a hospital in Lima, Peru where treatment might be available. If no treatment is available the individual must be transported back home.
Uncertainties/Critical Issues for Subsequent Project Selection Further Required Risk Information Specific Project Locations and site specific risks Medical Services Locations Evacuation/Emergency Procedures State of Infrastructure in Ica Region - has it been rebuilt after earthquakes? Water/Sanitation/Accommodation arrangements Budget (Materials Costs) Community Acceptance
