This project supports the Wayuu, an indigenous community in Columbia. We aim to provide at least 100 households with solar lamps and solar panels. We focus on women, since they are the care taker in this indigenous society.
Women are key
This project focuses on Wayuu women, because they are the main providers for their families, they raise the children, and take care of the environment. Wayuu society is matrilineal, which means that duties, responsibilities and possessions are inherited following the female lineage.
At Mama Tierra, we need your support to help us turn the wish of the Wayuu, to have light and electricity, into reality: to have access to basic comfort thanks to electricity. Our goal is to provide a hundred households with power produced by solar panels. The more money we can raise, the more families we can reach and help. In exchange for your support we offer attractive goodies. Thank you very much for your support and helping us to bring light into darkness.
