Project Report | Feb 8, 2024
lot going on

By Douglas McMeekin | Executive Director

Here we are in the beginning of a new year, 2024 and at Yachana it is an exciting time. We have a bunch of different projects we are working on that are in different stages of development. Many of these projects would be available for retired or older people. We are working with the university IKAIM located in our provincial capital of Tena. Yachana will be their Bio Campus. We are remodeling a building we have for it to be a medical clinic that will be managed and equipped by the Ministry of Health.   We are doing a lot of research and work with our little Melipona bees, a native stingless bee. Another perfect project for older people with patience. And we are starting to work with macro photography which is making the identification of these tiny insects possible. With this photography technique we can take a little insect that is three millimeters long (more or less 3/32 of an inch, small) and blow it up to facilitate identification. These, and many more things we are working on, show how the institution is growing in many different areas. Your support is vitally important to us, we need it more than ever right now. Thanks, keep following us, “and remember, I love you” Douglas
