Forging Ahead - Consider a Donation Before Year-End

Posted December 27, 2017 @ 3:34pm | by Comunidad

In our last post we mentioned we were winding down our work, but instead we’re forging ahead, in supporting our Peruvian communities where it makes most sense.The trip to the communities were made in November, and while we were saddened with the education level in Patatwasi and other issues there, our remaining bank balance had been invested in the construction of a new bathroom. We had not planned to take on anything more than the continuation of the scholarship students.Then a...

Happy Holidays from Comunidad

Posted November 28, 2017 @ 7:14pm | by Comunidad

Happy Holidays,A USAID operative in Lima, Peru, told Comunidad not long ago that we’ve made more of an impact at a grassroots level relatively speaking, than the US government could accomplish in the Comunidad communities, mired in all its red tape and bureaucracy. This is because of all of you.As a valued Comunidad friend and donor, we wanted to provide you with an end of year update. As you may recall, we’ve been winding down support of our projects in Peru....

Ready for use!

I can’t wait to use the bathroom in Patawasi!!! I’m heading there to check it out mid November, after I finish my Cusco Valley Hiking Trip. As Fundacíon Comunidad focuses more on ‘funding a need’ and moves out of the daily education involvement of the past 15 years, each project needs to be carefully monitored to fund raise accordingly. We think this turned out well for Patawasi’s residents. I will report back after I flush.The ongoing support from...

Posted September 26, 2017 @ 7:49pm | by Comunidad

Time for TP!With the generous support of Comunidad’s donors, Patawasi is getting an upgraded bathroom. This community is the furthest and most isolated of the six communities near Paccha, that we have worked in. Assisting both their pre-school and high-school has produced notable results in their academic status.

Patawasi gets a new baƱo

Posted July 31, 2017 @ 4:46pm | by Comunidad

We/you, are building a Baño in Patawasi !!! To be exact, it's 3 women's toilets plus a sink, 2 men's toilets & 2 urinals plus a sink. This fits into the health and nutrition part of our mission. The baño situation has been dismal in most of the areas we work. They haven't made the connection to their children's health and the bathroom situation as clearly as we have been able to, for obvious reasons, but we are getting them excited for this change! We...
