In two weeks, Fern will travel to Guatemala to further develop the water project, “Water for Life,” in the rural village, Chajmaic. The dates of her travel are December 10 through 24, 2018.
While there, she plans to establish a Guatemalan bank account, meet with Sowing Opportunities’ associate agricultural engineers, set up a branch nonprofit of Sowing Opportunities through an attorney in Guatemala, and make arrangements for local craftspeople to create beaded bracelets with the Sowing Opportunities logo.
In addition, she plans to visit a nearby village to explore their established water systems (including wells),
and if the conditions are right, visit Chajmaic or a nearby municipality. She will be accompanied by Sowing Opportunities’ associate Ricardo San José for most of the time.
