Project Tayakome UPDATE : Eco-Friendly Bathrooms

Our work with Project Tayakome continues to advance! The construction of the eco-friendly bathrooms and septic system has been underway since June 18th, 2010. Our crew, the villagers and the children work steadfast to achieve the completion goal of October 31, 2010. Sixty percent of the structure has now been built.

This remote Matsigenka village will be the first village, inside the protected zone of the Manu National Park, to have an integral health system that advances the health of the children for generations to come. This integral system includes: clean H2O flowing to tap stands at 15 homes, the schoolhouse and the medical post, separate boys and girls bathrooms at the school, and health education that reinforces daily hygiene practices.

It has been inspiring to witness the willingness of the people and the children that participate daily in whatever work needs to be done. The ongoing dedication of our HOTC construction staff to live long periods of time away from their families is profound as well. Our crew and the people of the village are able to transcend the distance, intense heat, physically challenging work, and the constant irritation of mosquitoes to live as one global family with a common goal.

It is through your past support that all of our advances have been made possible. We are in need of funding to complete the bathrooms, and continue with our health education and capacity training of the water committee through the end of the year. We humbly ask for your continued financial support of Project Tayakome. Together through our human kindness and GLOBALGIVING we are making our world a better place for all humanity.

Thank you for your support.

In deep gratitude, Nancy Santullo
