Update on CO2 Bambu

The Casa de la Mujer project in the community of Muelle de los Buyes has passed a critical milestone with the formal creation of a Casa del los Mujeres association in the community.  As a result of CO2 Bambu's involvement in this organization, we were able to orchestrate formal recognition and adoption by the national organization Casa de las Mujeres, of a newly constituted MdlB entity.  Now that this legal step has been taken and a formal board constituted, the next step is to present the organization's credentials to the Municipality, in order to get access to a specific property owned by the municipality, next to the local school.  There are many reasons for doing this, including the fact that all the principals of this association work at the school as Director and instructors.  In parallel, a process has started between the newly constituted Casa de las Mujeres and the national organization, to prioritize the program offering (i.e. counseling versus training, assembly versus emergency shelter etc), which in turn will impact the final construction.  The leadership of this Casa de la Mujer have asked CO2 Bambu to hold back on construction of the initially proposed home, in order to consider modifications to the design, to meet operational priorities.  Current estimate is that construction will start by end of February 2012
