Project Report | Feb 1, 2024
examples of projects

By Douglas McMeekin | Executive Director

Here we are in the beginning of a new year, 2024. At Yachana, it is an exciting time. Here are a few examples of the many projects we are working on for students to elderly that are in different stages of development. One of those is our relationship with the university IKAIM located in our provincial capital of Tena. Yachana will be their Bio Campus and a large number of students will be spending time with us as part of their studies. A second project is the remodeling of a building we have to be a medical clinic. We have signed an agreement with the Ministry of Health and they will manage and equip this building to replace a clinic we originally built in 1997, turned over to the Ministry of Health in 2005, and that has recently been destroyed by a change of course of the Napo River. Third, we are doing a lot of research and work with our little Melipona bees, a native stingless bee. We are starting to work with macro photography which is making the identification of these tiny insects possible. It is amazing what is right before our eyes but that we don’t see. With this photography technique we can take a little insect that is three millimeters long (more or less 3/32 of an inch, small) and blow it up to facilitate identification. There are many more things we are working on, but these are just a few to show how the institution is growing in many different areas. Your support is vitally important to us, we need it more than ever right now. Thanks, keep following us, and “remember, I love you” Douglas
