A Mantled Howler Monkey- a forest resident
Having previously closed this project due to lack of funding, updates on Global Giving donations show that we had a lot more donations than we believed. Since March we have received many more donations that we were unaware of and subsequently are now able to reopen the project with many donors interested in having it implemented.
The project would enable The Tribal Council of the Maleku to have a meeting place instead of having to pay to hire one, and would provide a headquarters for our work with them to plan land acquisitions and reforestation, community development, consider proposals from residents and hold traditional ceremonies. It will also provide employment for local men to build and maintain it.
The project has been reopened, as it now seems viable following receipt of these extra donations. We have also received other donations to this project separate from those on Global Giving, so it looks as if we may be implementing soon. Keep an eye out for more progress.
