Clean Water is Flowing in Carrazedo

Clean Water is Flowing in Carrazedo

Carrazedo has hit the ground running! Each family in the community has contributed their time for two weeks of collective work, and they’ve already leveraged Minga funds to gain support from the Mayor’s Office and the Ministry of Agriculture.

The water project began in November 2015, following a model of community labor (minga, or mutirao in Portuguese). They have also used this project to leverage donations of money, fuel, and technical experts from local government agencies. If all goes well they will be able to use a├žai profits to support their own future development projects. Most importantly, we are helping them establish a community organization so they can access other funds in the future.

This has been a truly heart-warming experience. We’re thrilled about this chance to work with a community that is just beginning to organize to improve their well-being and protect their most valuable natural resources. Obrigado (thank you) for all of your support thus far!
