Cruz Castro, president of the Tribal Council
Rancho Bienvenido is a unique project. It's aim is simple - to create a place for the community-run MalekuTribal Council to use for their development and future prosperity.
The other day, I went to see the old Rancho with Roberta on a routine inspection of our projects at the Maleku reserve. The Rancho stands centrally within the village, burnt in a fire earlier this year, it remains a great shell, a powerful symbol of the potential of a people. As I toured the village, it became clear that there was really nothing but a football field for the community to call their own.
With the generous donations we have received so far, we are on our way towards our goal of $2000 to rebuild the ranch. The need is there, the desire is there - we could even construct it in a long weekend. We thank you for your support and interest as we search for the remaining funding.
