Dear GlobalGiving community, 

Part of the success of the implementation of a community edible forest project is the organizational strengthening of those who participate in it, for this reason, we have created an alliance with Casa de la Mujer, an international organization that has worked for more than 20 years in the fight for women's rights.

The objective of this aliza is to strengthen the women's organizations participating in the project. For this, 6 workshops have been carried out to understand alliances, leadership in the territories, internal skills, etc., and thus contribute to their strengthening

Weather conditions have delayed the implementation of this activity (floods, landslides, etc.). However, 4 possible plots have been identified where it would be possible to install edible forests.

On the other hand, the greenhouse installed a few months ago will be launched with the participating women, who are organizing to define their roles and participation in its management.

Thanks to the entire GlobalGiving community for making this dream possible. In the coming months we will have more news and progress to tell you.

Best regards,

 

Luisa Palomino

Dear GlobalGiving Community,

 

It is our pleasure to share with you the good news and progress in our edible forest project.

 

One of the first steps in being able to build edible forest patches is to have the trees ready and available to be transplanted. To achieve this, part of this project involves the construction of a greenhouse.

 

To carry out the construction of the 80-square-meter greenhouse, local labor was hired, causing a double impact by promoting the reactivation of economic activity in the sector.

 

As of today, the work has advanced by 90%. In the month of August, the inauguration of the place will be held and the roles that each of the participating women will have in the activation of this space will be defined.

We invite you to continue supporting this and other projects of our organization so that we all build a greener and more sustainable future.

Dear GlobalGiving Community,

We are really happy to see that our community is growing, and that more and more people are motivated to support this beautiful project.

The first quarter of the year has been really productive and we have started the instalation of a greenhouse to grow seeds to plant in the edible forest plots we have designated for such purpose.

Having this facility will allow us to produce vegetable material locally, which will reduce costs for transportation, will ensure a better adaptation of plants and thereby better results in the long term.

In every project we carry out we ensure that local labor is hired, to create a bigger impact. With this first phase over 6 families of the people hired to build the greenhouse are being benefit. Once the project is fully implemented, 25 women and their families will benefit.

Once the greenhouse is ready, the next step will be carrying out workshops on the proper use and mantainance of the greenhouse, asigning duties and roles to every participant.

We encourage you to continue helping us to get the resources for our next phase. So, do not hessitate to share this iniciative with your friends and family to create together a bigger and more solid community.
