Gurutze was the only child born in Orexa in 1995.
As soon as we arrived, she explained the demographic map of the village. Today Orexa has 33 inhabitants under the age of 25, so, despite being a young village, the future of such a small village is always uncertain. Young people tend to leave, first because of friends and studies, and later because of job opportunities or the particularities of life in the village.
Gurutze, in her role as deputy mayor, is very clear that the village has to offer "something more" to keep it alive and get young people to decide to stay and live there.
In general, it seems to be very difficult for young people to get involved, especially in projects related to the survival and development of the village. Gurutze is an exception. She is an example of a young woman born in a small village, who is willing to take on responsibilities and commitment to the future of her community.
