Dear donors

We wish you a happy new year, we want to thank you for your continued support to the farming families, we continue to fight against COVID-19, implementing preventive measures in the community.

Our team of expert farmers and the families have reached agreements in which we all contribute and prosper. We have been taking care of the plants in the nurseries, taking firm steps together with the families to fulfil the plan for the future, receiving training on mycorrhizae and mushroom drying, and harvesting them, preparing for the onset of the rains and organising the final planting in the field. Every activity in the communities is carried out with the participation of everyone, because every opinion is valuable for the future of all, agreements are made, and with the sum of the effort and dedication of each one we obtain these wonderful results.

We hope to continue counting on your support in 2022, and to continue Sowing Prosperity!

Come and join us!!!!!

Dear Donors

We are very grateful for your continuous support to the families of Omacha, your contribution is extremely valuable, we want to tell you that we continue to take care of COVID-19, we do not lower our guard.

We are taking care of our plants in the nurseries, working with the fungal mycorrhizae, thinking about our future, to improve our diet and also sell them, the fungi appear in the largest trees when the rainy season arrives. The families have been receiving training on the construction of dryers, to optimize efforts they must be prepared.

The Huasquillay community has worked hard in their nurseries, taking care of them every day. They have incorporated strawberry cultivation for their productive businesses, and on raising guinea pigs, they want to be prosperous.

For the larger trees they have received training on pruning and thinning, which is very important for their growth and production of high quality wood and especially for CO2 capture.

We are waiting for the start of the rains in November for the November 2021-March 2022 forest campaign.

We maintain confidence in the organizational and associative potential of families for the good of their communities, we continue working for the good of ourselves and the region,

Here are some photos of our day to day with the families of Omacha

Dear Donors

We are very grateful for your continued support for the families of Omacha, your contribution is extremely valuable, we want to tell you that we exceeded our forestry goal we achieved more than 200,000 seedlings, we worked many tasks with families and communities, we planted in final field, We took care of our nurseries with manual work to prevent the attack of the fungal disease chupadera fungus in the seedlings and improve their drainage, since May we are entering the cold and frost season, so we must take good care of our small seedlings for the next forestry campaign in November 2021-March 2022.

 

The families and communities have participated with great attention and dedication to the training on the harvesting of pine mushrooms and morchella mushrooms, learning how to collect them, store them, build drying sheds, and cook delicious recipes, thanks to this they have sold more than 1500 kilos, so we are very happy, this is part of the value of the forest for them and their future.

They have also made a great effort for the construction and care of the guinea pig sheds, the guinea pig associations have very positive results, on average they house more than 1000 guinea pigs per shed, which makes it a profitable business for their families.

 

We emphasize the role of rural women, we celebrate with her the 5 groups of women savers, together they decided the rules, they wrote them and they are at the entrance of the community hall, they feel important, valued for being the protagonists of this activity.

The institutional support of the Municipality has been very valuable for all the activities we carry out, and that is why their participation is fundamental, so that the communities strengthen their relationship with them.

Regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the communities continue to adopt their own quarantines, following strict preventive measures to avoid contagion, however, several families and part of our team have been infected, fortunately all are now well.

 

We believe in the organizational and associative potential of the families for the good of their communities, and even in the midst of the pandemic, we are fighting for the economic reactivation of the country, today more than ever the agricultural sector is once again taking center stage due to the important role it plays in the supply of basic necessities in the markets nationwide.

Here are some photos of our day to day work with the families of Omacha.

 

Together we are part of the change!

Come and join us!!!!

We sow Prosperity!!!!

Prosperous Omacha

Cusco, February 2021

Dear Donors

In these months we have continued to accompany the families of Omacha, we have adapted to the preventive measures before COVID-19. Our team of expert farmers and the families have reached agreements where we all contribute and are prosperous. COVID-19 will not stop us.

Today, more than ever, we believe in the organisational and associative potential of the families for the good of their communities. Under a spirit of companionship they have carried out wonderful, useful, productive and timely activities, in the circumstances that the world is going through at the moment and they especially, in areas so far away, remote and inaccessible. Here are some photos that beautifully reflect what we have been doing, vegetable gardens, guinea pig sheds, trout ponds, tending the grass, fixing our kitchens and caring for our nurseries.

Come and join us!!!

Tree donations to help impoverished families in Peru

This project seeks to lift 1096 families out of extreme poverty in Pichigua and Omacha in Cusco, through peer learning and healthy competition. The goal is to accelerate the recovery of degraded soils and vegetation while helping the villages, and the families living in them, to manage their natural resources in a sustainable manner.

In the community of Huillque-Omacha everyone participates in the construction and care of the guinea pig sheds.

The ideal place for the construction of a guinea pig house should be far away from noise, dust and noxious gases. The guinea pig is a very shy animal and needs peace and quiet.

Guinea pig meat has a high nutritional value, because it contains the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids required in human nutrition. The average protein content of guinea pig meat (19.49 %)

The families also tended to the cultivation of ryegrass, which is used for direct grazing, cover crops and erosion control, silage, hay and other crops.

The care and business of trout has also been present in Omacha's families.

In the community of Huasquillay-Omacha, the women have been improving their homes, making them healthy, especially in the kitchen with its oven and cupboards to keep their pots and cutlery clean and tidy.

The women put all their efforts into having their house nice, clean and tidy, with inlaid, painted and nicely designed walls.

Omacha is at an altitude of over 3800 metres above sea level, where the low temperatures make it practically impossible for vegetables to grow naturally. For this reason we have implemented the vegetable gardens with phyto-tents, which are very valuable and useful for the families, and even more so with the preventive measures of COVID-19, having a good diet is indispensable for the families.

During these months, the families have been very motivated with the construction and care of their vegetable gardens with phyto-tents, with the participation of mum, dad, children and grandparents. These vegetables and greens will help them to combat the high rates of child malnutrition and improve their nutrition.

The community of Chapina, doing work for the construction of nurseries and bagging, and then placing the seeds.

Always with smiles and good humour, thinking about their map of the future.

We will soon be sending you reports on the 2020-2021 Afforestation Campaign.

Our team of expert farmers was authorised to be with the communities, complying with the COVID-19 prevention protocol.

We are grateful to be in a situation that allows us to continue serving our community during this crisis.

 

¡Help us with your donation to Plant Prosperity!
