…and listen to the forest ooooonce again!
This week has been full of good news, surprises and whispers from the forest telling me to not lose focus and reminding me of my inner motivation in life. I went back to the cloud forest today, met Oscar, one of the youth entrepreneur that will benefit from Vivamos el Bosque. A warm conversation showed me again the reason I put all my enegies in protecting the Otonga Cloud Forest and all its beautiful people. We planned together the coming social entrepreneurship pilot program that will involved 7 youth from El Maltón Community. Thanks to Dekeyser and Friends Foundation who supported the project with 1000 Euros, the last weekend of October, Vivamos el Bosque will run its first educational program along with its second photography workshop with our friends from Tropical Herping… 🙂
So far the Social Entrepreneurship pilot program will bring 7 experts, including FLOARE and WIKIRI, friends of the Project that will share their social business experience and lessons learned to conduct the workshops. The topics are:
– Workshop 1: Product development: social enterpreneurship
– Workshop 2: Economic Sustainability
– Workshop 3: Financial management
– Workshop 4:Product design
– Workshop 5:Legal advice
– Workshop 6:Networking and communication
– Workshop 7:Sanitary requierements and permissions
At the end of my great visit to ¨El Maltón¨Community I had the chance to share some time with Don Amable Yanez, founder of ¨El Maltón¨ community who delighted me with one of his songs that I share here with you! Enjoy! and follow Vivamos el Bosque!
