In the community members lack access to proper aerobic fitness equipment to stay in shape. As a result, issues of obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure plague the community, affecting middle and older aged women especially hard. Unfortunately, the majority of community members lack the financial resources to invest in a gym membership and the majority don't include cardiovascular exercise into their daily routine as a result.
Fortunately, the community boasts a well organized "neighborhood commission", that has fought hard to bring vital resources to the local community. Since the year 2010, this commission has managed to bring running water, electricity, and affordable public housing to our community. In addition, they have found volunteers living within the community to provide free labor to build a public health post, a small anaerobic exercise center, and a childrens' playground. Along with the help of a local women's action group the commission would like to construct a walking track around the plaza to encourage more women as well as interested men to exercise and take advantage of this potential community resource.
Through the in-kind contribution from local members such as labor and construction supplies, the commission is committed to sustaining their part within this project above the threshold required to build the walking track. Overall, through the completion of this project, it is believed that a more vibrant and family friendly plaza can be enjoyed by all that live in this community.
