It is always our great pleasure to report our project advances to you! The people of Tayakome continue to inspire our work by how quickly they are adapting to the new infrastructure that was installed 2009 -2010. The water flows clean, the bathroom structure at the school is hygienic and in perfect working order, and good hygiene practices abound. We are very proud of the people, especially since 60% of all water projects fail within the first three years of implementation--and Tayakome is FLOURISHING!
In July and August of 2011 our Peru associate and project supervisor Caleb Matos Chavez made supervision visits to Tayakome. Your GlobalGiving donations were instrumental in helping to accomplish the following:
What’s NEXT: Our next supervision visit will be this December when our medical anthropologist Dr. Glenn Shepard Jr., will conduct a social impact study on the influence of our programming on remote rainforest cultures. We will also continue with technical training and health education to support long term health and sustainability.
House of the Children would like to thank our GlobalGiving Family for their ongoing generosity and friendship to the children and families of Tayakome. The advances in the community are monumental for indigenous people and give hope and inspiration to other villages that await our services.
REMINDER! We still have 14 months of supervision visits in Tayakome, so know that we would all be grateful for your continued support of these beautiful Matsigenka people.
P.S. Please share our work with your friends and colleagues!
