After one year and half project:

- Participation

The participation goal of 60% was reach during the three contests. 415 families of 6 rural communities are part od the project.

- Households and health 

An increase in adoption and improvement of the practices is evident, 60% families have houses with plastered walls, separate rooms for cooking, living and raising guinea pigs, and chimneys to remove the smoke.Improving homes has a significant impact on family health. Smoke-free kitchens reduce the incidence of lung disease, especially for women who do most of the cooking.

Businesses

Families are working hard to improve their alpaca businesses. While the animals can thrive in difficult locations, often the pasture has been degraded over time from open grazing. Improved pasture practices and rotational grazing that allows the grasses to rest are making  a difference in th equality and quantity of animals that can be raised, increasing incomes for families.

Around the district, guinea pig businesses is starting. Families build new sheds, implementing it  with medicines, watering systems and improved pastures.

- Afforestation

Despite the hard environment conditions 63 000 trees were planted during the three contests. 80% of the families planted trees and 35 % have a familiar nursery

Currently we have a participation of 432 families, which are 90% of the rural population of 7 peasant communities (Alccasana, Ccahuaya baja, Chañi, Chimpa alccasana, Moro alccasana, Nueva esperanza and Sillota).

Water shortages, degraded grasslands and eroded soils are among the main difficulties faced by these communities. This situation generates poverty and migration of many families to other areas in search of better opportunities.


That is why we are working on the generation of healthy housing, prosperous businesses, recovery of degraded areas and reforestation. As a result, we already have 106 families with good healthy homes, 85 families with good pasture management, and 27 families with successful businesses. We have also installed forest nurseries with 170,000 seedlings, including pines and native plants, which will appear in the following campaigns; and one of the challenges we have is planting over 4300 meters above sea level, however, with the support and commitment of the families and the municipality we will be able to overcome it.

These advances motivate us to continue with the project and generate more development and reach more families in Pichigua.

We started the Pachamama Raymi project in the District of Pichigua in December 2017. We have been working since January 2018 together with the contribution of the Municipality of Pichigua and our expert farmers, who show us the results obtained in these months of work.
Peer learning training has been conducted on the management and care of forest tree plantations in the field, in the management of Hypochlorite, among others, using audiovisual tools.

The development of healthy homes for peasant families began, elaborating improved kitchens, painting the houses, establishing separate rooms from the home environments, eliminating their waste in landfills, etc.
As for sustainable businesses, 3 action units have been determined according to their own resources: Guinea pig business, cattle business and Llamas business.The forest advances are very positive, there are a total of 207,200 forest trees produced between family and communal nursery gardens, being the Pine the species with the highest demand.

During this time we have managed to register 70% of families living in the Pichigua District to the Pachamama Raymi project. During the following months we will be observing major implementations in the three dimensions of sustainable development that are the pillars of our NGO's work.
