We are very happy to tell you that we have held the Family Forestry Contest Awards in the community of Chimpa Alccassana. This contest included a party with music, flowers, many colors of their typical clothes, food and much joy with a ceremony that delivered the prizes for the winners of the contests.

The members of the community of Chimpa Alccassana received us with a strong handshake, a smile and a sincere hug. This was at the entrance of the village that they decorated with colored balloons.

Chimpa Alccasana is a very organized community. The party began with the sounds of huaynos music, with singers from the community like Miss Alicia Cañas and Mr Ricardo. All the activities were held in both Quechua and Spanish.

With their beautiful colorful skirts they danced a traditional "Kashua" dance, which originated from the Incaico.

The project is coordinated by Benito, Elias and Dario, who encouraged all the families to participate.

We celebrated the plantation of 20 thousand pine trees planted that will result in prosperity in the community.

The winners of their prizes are: Ms. Valentina, Mr. Wilbert, Mr. Ignacio, Mr. Isaias and Mr. Raul.

At the end the ceremony, all present were offered the traditional Chicha and a delicious meal. Under a beautiful blue sky, the meal and drinks were all shared happily.

We planted prosperity in Chimpa Alccasana.

Thank you very much and blessings

  20 thousand trees Chimpa Alccasana Forest

Pichigua-Cusco

The Chimpa Alccasana Forest of 20,000 trees was made possible thanks to the donations received and the teamwork of the farming families and Pachamama Raymi.

Pachamama Raymi is one of the most innovative and successful projects to eradicate poverty. Its purpose is to break the vicious circle of environmental degradation and rural poverty, enabling communities and peasant families to improve their living conditions and manage their natural resources in a sustainable way.

In the community of Chimpa Alccasana, the axis of the methodology associated with forestation was implemented with the peasant families of the community. Working to break the vicious circle of environmental degradation and rural poverty, introducing sustainable management of natural resources. Where the rural population leads its development, based on its creativity and vital capacities; and where knowledge is managed, with emphasis on the (re)valorization of those present in the people themselves and their massification with exchange between peers.

With much enthusiasm and joy, the rural families took care of the plants from the nursery, watched them grow, and waited for the arrival of the rainy season, in order to begin loading and transporting them to the final site of the plantation. It is a celebration to plant the trees, to share, to smile, it is a totally festive atmosphere for the families and for the Pachamama.
