Where are we now
We currently have a trained team, a volunteer program that could help in the construction of the bridge, as well as the knowledge and skills already installed in the community from Boruca. With these resourser we have build a nursery, a greenhouse and plant 24,000 trees. In addition, thanks to having won the Cemex-TEC 2020 award with the "Bosque para Nacer Agua" project in the "community entrepreneurship" category, we have been able to start building a bamboo structure that will serve as a seed bank, with which we intend support ecosystem conservation processes, protect culture and ensure food sovereignty
An indication of our team’s capacity:
25% funding already raised
75% expertise already found
25% materials / equipment already found
75% builders already found
Finance: € 9,000
We wish to continue with the processes of restoring the ecosystems of the Boruca mountains, and the development of local capacities for adaptation to climate change and mitigation of its effects. For this reason, we hope to be able to build a bridge that will allow us to safely cross the Boruca River, increase the volume of work and take the project to new phases.
In addition, during the construction process of this project we would generate economic income for the builders, as well as for the sellers of construction materials in Boruca.
