Hey, as some of you may remember, I proposed to colaborate with Lomas del Paraíso in the first Changemakers meeting. Lomas del paraíso is a winter-green ecosystem in Villa Maria del Triunfo and part of Limas „green hills“ (check it out: Protected content , Protected content . The Group of volunteers who try to conscientizise and protect their hills are always looking for helping hands. During the last year, they have worked hard and achieved big steps to protect this fragile ecosistem. My contact Person Sr. Noe tells me that they have great plans: they want to establish a permanent touristic circuit and protection against the land invasion similar to Lomas de Lúcumo: Protected content . They are working on improving the road, establishing lookouts, conscientisizing people, educating children, offering touristic guidance etc.. They also plan to establish a little education center at the entrance. To summarize: there`s all kinds of different volunteers needed! They need publicity, funds and working hands and would be really happy if we could colaborate. We are planning a first meeting on Sunday morning at 9:30 am. We`ll meet at this hour at the Maria Auxiliadora train station, just at the bottom of the stairs of the north exit which is looking at the street Huamachuco at the foot of the big advertising board. From there, we will proceed to the Lomas together. We will learn about what is already being done, get to know their work plan for Protected content bring together ideas how we could apport to their goals. And of course, being at the site, you can get an impression of how beautiful it is!
I remember there were proyect managers, lawyers and even a lady with connections to Canadian funding at the Changemakers meeting – a lot of needed talents in this case! And then of course all those willing volunteers… please, inscribe if you are interested and if you want send me your number to Protected content we can find each other in case of problems.
