Ending date: May.2011


Implement an integral development programme in 7 rural communities in the Pomac Forest Historical Sanctuary (2010-2011)

The goal of the project is the integral development of 7 benefiting communities. The activities being undertaken address the fields of education (to improve the quality of pre-school and primary school teaching); health (to increase the capacity and quality of the basic health services and to improve families’ access to them); and productive capacity, to expand and diversify families’ sources of income.


The communities in question are located in a hard-to-access part of the Pomac Forest Historical Sanctuary and make up a population of 10,678 inhabitants, including not only the area’s traditional peoples but also migrants from the mountainous area of the Department of Cajamurca. A significant percentage of the families living there still have no access to basic services and many live below the poverty line on incomes of less than $140 a month. Their income comes from crop-growing and livestock, which are limited because of the scarcity of water and the traditional production techniques used. This leads people to resort to illicit sources of revenue in the forest (wood cutting and coal mining).


This project is benefiting 5,964 people. Co-financed by the Community of Madrid, it is being undertaken in partnership with the Spanish Red Cross.
