Dear donors and supporters,
On the one hand we want to share that, as it has been explained before, connectivity in our rural area for the SueTy project is scarce and, on top of that, limitations for a personal meeting with students is not being allowed by educational authorities... which means it is quite a struggle to move forward with our desired plans.
Nevertheless, our first booklet is ready for distribution to all the students of the Guaquira school, and they will be delivered in a few days from now in coordination with their teacher, Ms. M.Castro (video). Here is a copy-image of its content, as it will be received by each child (images attached below).
Soon after and once we get their homework back, we will deliver new booklets and tasks, aiming to gather enough feedback from them to prepare transmedia pieces using their sources by the end of this year, with which we will try to fulfill our project's objective, in the best possible manner provided the difficult circumstances.
On the other hand, we are feeling hopeful and greatful with project SueTy and with you all our supporters, since it has served us for inspiration to materialise a complementary initiative aimed to support children and youth for wetland conservation in rural areas of our region. It´s also partially motivated by the difficulties faced along this pandemic times, and we believe it represents a good answer to contribute on enriching alternatives for our rural children to continue pursuing capacities on nature conservation.
This is the Múcura Award for Wetland Conservation, which was just approved inside GlobalGiving for fundraising, please dive into it and consider sharing to your contacts or networks, aiming for support to prepare ourselves for next Mucura´s call for applications!—I truly hope you will like it: http://goto.gg/49365
And thank you once again, for being our project's supportive partners.
