While the world has drastically changed, one thing has not changed and cannot be ignored: the menace of water scarcity threatens communities around the globe!
In Costa Rica’s northwestern province of Guanacaste, the threat has already had an impact: a century-long drying trend and destructive land-use practices have created water shortages in rural countless communities.
That’s where Asociación Nandamojo – Restoring Our Watershed (ROW) step in!
We are a tiny organization with the vision to help Guanacaste’s communities achieve their own water security by restoring their landscape. Through a decade of hard work and trial and error, we’ve put together a model for accomplishing this change and we’re making good progress in the Nandamojo basin, our 30,000-acre “home base.”
We had the dream of creating the Guanacaste Water Center to elevate our vision to a regional scale, but we had no idea how that would happen…
Until Faithbox offered us their support and partnership!
Faithbox has helped us take our vision to a new level and we could not be more excited about this next phase! The Guanacaste Water Center, now under construction, will be a place for us to collaborate with countless stakeholders to inspire and equip them to protect their resources.
The support Faithbox has given us has enabled us to create an interactive, welcoming space for people to visit and learn. For years we have operated a small nursery space in the heart of the watershed; that space has been donated to ROW and Faithbox’s support has allowed us to transform the area.
Where we previously brought groups to crowd into improvised structures, we will now have comfortable meeting and learning spaces. We’ve been able to create educational materials and interactive displays that will greatly enhance the learning experience for students and stakeholders involved.
When completed, the Guanacaste Water Center will be an innovative place that drives the change needed for communities to protect their own water security, as well as a source of support for our organization. We look forward to sharing more news about our progress!
Thank you for your partnership, your support, and joining with us to help restore our watershed!
The Asociación Nandamojo Team
During the 1st Quarter of 2020, Faithbox partnered with Asociación Nandamojo – Restoring Our Watershed by providing $1 from every subscription to help finance the construction of the Guanacaste Water Center.
From the very beginning, we at Faithbox have been committed to making an impact by partnering with companies and organizations who are spiritually encouraging, socially-conscious, or environmentally-friendly. We believe Christians should be a the forefront of caring for God’s people and God’s creation, which is why we continue to support initiatives like this every month.
