Planning work for the dry season

By Oscar | Project leader

The dry season in this part of the world runs from January through April. We are going to get the help of several volunteers to get all the trails done sometime during this coming dry season. We just require gravel, some sand and cement to build short bridges and to lay in some parts of the new trails. This gravel help reduce erosion and makes easier for people to walk around.  The bridges reduce sedimentation and interference with creek flora and fauna. But most importantly, it makes it possible for pre-schoolers and smaller children to walk in a primary forest.

Most everthing is planned and ready. We hope you can give us some assistance throught GlobalGiving so that we can purchase the construction grade gravel, the sand, and the cement. I am sure we can finish the trails and bridges in a couple of weeks once we have the materials with the help of the volunteers.

Thank you,
