Unfortunately Wayuu people are under the great threat and in certain parts of La Guajira region there is a humanitarian crisis.*
According to Unicef the Wayuu region ranks as the second poorest place in Latin America after Haiti.
The main water source is under control of multinational corporation, the world's largest open cast coal mine, called El Cerrejón.
Fonds distributed by the government are disappearing due to corruption and certain level of common delincuency in the area.
In certain areas of La Guajira there are no more than 1/2 liter of water available per person. Comparying it with our everyday life, each one of us uses an average of 20 liters of water per day.
WE COMMIT TO:
Shape the charity program in order to provide water, food and school supplies for children. Use our experience of working with befriended foundations in Colombia and Venezuela.
Support micromanagement attempts of local Indigenous people, in their majority women responsible for their families.
Share knowledge related to craftsmanship techniques to preserve cultural heritage.
