Volunteering at the Spanish School
The school connects students with volunteer opportunities in Bariloche and the surrounding communities. Two current students, Ellen, a doctor, and her husband, Charles, a computer specialist, wanted to take advantage of this program. For this they headed to the administrative offices of nearby Villa los Coihues, a small village located on the banks of Lago Gutiérrez. Ellen had hoped to work in the health clinic but found that it is only open rarely and so is arranging to help at the hospital in Bariloche. Charles wanted to switch from his normally sedentary work and help with construction, but, when he found that the village water department was having trouble switching their computer program he gladly agreed to lend his expertise. The village administrators have promised to let him break a sweat and help with some construction as well.
