Title of the report: Happy Ending for 2015 at Julio Otoni
The spirit of a community can be present at certain favelas in Rio.  At Julio Otoni this has been one of the goals over the years of the Julio Otoni Community Center which many donors have supported through Global Giving.  The focus of the project are the 50 children which  we engage  in our after school programs but often we also create opportunities to benefit many more children and members of the community.
On December 18th we organized a Christmas party for the whole  Julio Otoni Favela. Children which attended the permanent programs at Julio Otoni helped creating the activities for the event.  There were games, food, gifts offered to the other members of the community. Indeed a healthy and auspicious atmosphere in the spirit of the culture our center  wants to propagate in every member of the community: be responsible for its own change.

Happy Ending for 2015 at Julio Ottoni

The spirit of a community can be present at certain favelas in Rio.  At Julio Otoni this has been one of the goals over the years of the Julio Otoni Community Center which many donors have supported through Global Giving.  The focus of the project has been to contribute to the development of  50 children which  we engage  in our after school programs but often we also create opportunities to benefit many more children and members of the community.
On December 18th we organized a Christmas party for the whole  Julio Otoni Favela. Children which attended the permanent programs at Julio Otoni helped creating the activities for the event.  There were games, food, gifts offered to the other members of the community. Indeed a healthy and auspicious atmosphere in the spirit of the culture our center  wants to propagate in every member of the community: be responsible for its own change.
In 2016 we will celebrate our tenth anniversary.  In these ten years the community center has become a reference point of positive transformation for the community.  We count that your support will continue.

First Field Day for Assisted Natural Regeneration

Field day
Field day

 

In the month of December, we had our first exciting day in the field with our new and experimental reforestation project. In collaboration with Eco Atlantica, we are pioneering a new process called assisted natural regeneration. Instead of having to use thousands of dollars for expensive conservation practices that often fail, we are experimenting with a much more practical, scalable and natural approach. 

On December 15, the Eco Atlantica team took a field visit to SINAL for the first day of planting trees. The whole SINAL team participated… volunteers, staff, and local workers. One excellent benefit of assisted natural regeneration is that it does not require a complex methodology like many traditional reforestation practices, meaning it can provide ample job opportunities for local workers. One local youth from the town of Santo Antonio will be learning how to track and monitor the reforestation process. 

The day of the visit, hiking up and down the rugged hills of the SINAL property, the Eco Atlantica team showed which were the important species for reforestation that should be nurtured and protected, as well as which were key trees for planting. The theory of natural regeneration is to watch, observe and listen to nature — seeing how nature recovers and springs back and then creating a process that replicates this. We are excited that this project will the beginning of a long time recuperation of our land.
