- They are an education NGO which supports schools with a Peace and Sustainable Development Based curriculum in agricultural communities.
- They are in contact with a small community of agricultural workers in Rio Claro which was devastated by the earthquake
- These little communities are the ones that get forgotten when these disasters happen.
I am sending you the links for the institution we are supporting in Chile. They are connected with a larger NGO which makes international donations easier. We have decided to support them for three reasons:
I am copying the links here hoping that people in your networks will become interested. One of the links shows a ppt with the help that they already were able to get there with the beginning contributions. It was the first help this community received a week after the earthquake.

Donate online through The Resource Foundation in the US (editor’s note: Canadians can donate here as well though I’m not sure that a tax receipt is available.)
