MBF Wraps up 2016 With Lots of Accomplishments!

Monarchs arrived in Mexico and we are waiting for the colonies to settle to assess the populations. In the meantime, our local partner Alternare continued with their ongoing workshops.

During the last trimester of the year, 6 workshops were held with the participation of 46 women and 86 men from the Crescencio Morales, Curungueo, San Cristóbal and Francisco Serrato indigenous communities. There were 4 workshops to build cisterns, 1 on reforestation and another one on tree planting. They resulted in the construction of 27 cisterns, 3 fuel-efficient stoves and one school tree nursery.

The cisterns have a large capacity to hold rainwater which is used to water vegetable gardens and provide drinking water to communities. Thanks to the cisterns and their fuel-efficient stoves, families can cook and enjoy their meals with potable water. A family eating tortillas and drinking clean water told us, “This is fantastic! We can make our tortillas using less fuel and get a glass of water right here in the community. The food seems tastier now. Thank you!"

 Stay tuned for our upcoming winter newsletter where you will be able to read more details about all our projects.

 THANK YOU for being a part of these inspiring initiatives!
