Visiting the Abandoned.

We believe that true community extends beyond reforesting our environment. It also means caring for the people who live around us, especially those who are elderly, abandoned, widowed, injured, or living in poverty in remote rural areas.

In the hills behind our land, there are individuals who are struggling to take care of themselves. Some have children who have moved away and have forgotten them. To address this issue, we want to dedicate a day each month or each week for a visit. We clean their homes, cook them food, bring them supplies, and check in on their well-being. We plan to expand this effort by creating a micro-branded project called "El Proyecto Anastasia," named after a friend's mother who passed away alone.

Our hope is to create a movement that enables people to actively participate in this project. We believe that one of the greatest cures for loneliness is to help others. By visiting and caring for those who are isolated or in need, we not only bring them companionship and support, but we also benefit ourselves. We gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and needs of our community and we come together to find solutions.

It's all too easy to become disconnected from our neighbors, even when we live in close proximity to them. We want to change that. By creating a system that brings people together and enables them to help one another, we can build stronger, more compassionate communities. 

Currently, this project has been 100% self funded.  Each visit I spend around $100. 

If you would like to sponsor visits please reach out.  We could reach more people together.

Water Filters 

Access to clean water for people in our community is an unattainable goal. Rather than risk drinking brown, contaminated water from their taps, many rely on bottled sodas for hydration. This is a reality for many of our neighbors and we are committed to help however we can.  

We started a campaign and collected donated DIY 'Berkey' water filtration systems. With the right maintenance and hacks, these filters can last for over 20 years, and provide clean drinking water.  We also have an opportunity to build filtration systems with locally available resources.  The cost is about $75 per unit for the parts that would help a family home have access to drinkable water.  We invite you top help us expand our efforts for this service within our community.

Trash Pickups and General Community Presence. 

We have organized regular trash pickups to maintain the cleanliness of our surroundings, particularly the two trails to town. While we live in an area with less tourism and therefore less visible litter, we recognize the importance of setting an example for our community and instilling a culture of responsible waste management.  At the end of dry season each year we pick up trash on specific walking trails to town.  

We have a plan on how we could start a community drive and advertise monthly trash pickups on the radio.  It would keep our area clean from the mountain pass, Abra Malaga, to Quillabamba, the jungle basin.  We estimate it would cost about $500 a month and would employ 2 locals part time.   Write me if you are interested in partnering.  Currently this project is 100% self funded.
