Project 6630: Benedictine nuns of Mexico-Pampanga (Philippines)
Some views of the on-going construction (phase 1) of the new monastery
Esmeraldas, Ecuador (2014)
Cistercian Nuns of Esmeraladas (Ecuador)
The community lives very poorly although it has several sectors of activity: altar bread, bookbinding, production of milk caramels, manufacture of wax and honey products, handicrafts, liturgical ornaments, hotels.
The sisters wish to carry out a reforestation project on fifty hectares of land they own. The land was previously used for cattle, but the situation has become untenable because of the many thefts that have taken place, with all the risks that this entails.
The government's policy is very concerned about land use; expropriation of land is provided for in the event that the government deems that the land is being misused. Reforestation is very much desired by the government.
Several acres of the same land have been reforested with Teak and the result is positive. The total cost of the project is high, but its implementation has been divided into three phases, which should be completed within five or six years.
The first stage began in 2013 with the support of several benefactors.
Total Cost Details:
1- Preparing the ground: 10 500 $
2- Sowing costs: 8 332,50 $
3- Cost of labour: 11 475,50 $
Total reforestation of 15 hectares: 30 307,50 $
The current application is for the second stage.
Requested amount: 15 291 euros
