I worked on the bridge; I helped to haul rocks and push wheelbarrows. I really liked pushing the loaded wheelbarrows and aligning the stones with the mason. I'd like to study masonry when I get older.
Planning for his future
Johnny was 11 years old when the El Pueblito bridge was being constructed in his community. Every day of the build, Johnny's grandfather, the mayor of the community, brought him along to work on the bridge. Johnny was a huge help during the construction process, and because of the skills he learned on the project, he now wants to be a mason when he grows up.

Johnny now has a reliable, year-round connection to the services he needs most, but beyond that, he also has new aspirations for his future.
