Loma Linda

The Organic Garden project in Loma Linda is ongoing, partly through some donations raised through ICO and via other sources, but largely through the efforts of the coordinator Pascual. Some of the project goals have been reached, but not all, and some of the obstacles have to do with internal issues. The good news is that there is a continuing commitment to this garden, and that ASODILL members are cultivating it. -October 8th 2014.

Loma Linda is a small community about two hours from Quetzaltenango, the second-largest city in Guatemala. Families from the western highlands working for poor wages on plantations of the south coast bought the lands of Loma Linda in September, 1976 and created a cooperative Catholic community high in the mountainous area of El Palmar.  They worked communally to build their houses, a water project, a storage building, a church and a school. They were aided by Father Celestino, the Quetzaltenango organization Caritas, a Spanish aid organization and many others.

ICO’s Instruments4Africa provides opportunities to underprivileged children in Mali, one of Africa's poorest countries, to get an education and reach their potential. Building on Mali’s rich artistic culture, children receive performing arts training, and are part of a performing arts troupe guided by professional dance and music teachers.

The Timberline and Carihi International Co-op class just returned back from their work placement trip to Nepal. A group of 23 students and chaperones spent their spring break experiencing the culture and adventures the small country had to offer. The class worked with InnovativeCommunities.org Foundation on the Irrigation Initiative, and managed to raise enough money to fund 1.5 kilometers of the irrigation canal. This effort helped to aid thousands of farming families in the remote village of Lawachowk that could not have funded this project on their own.
