Sunday, July 13, 2014. JUAN CAAL Reporting: A new resource centre was inaugurated on Saturday in rural Toledo.
The project was funded by the United Nations Development Fund and implemented by the Ka Ken’el Kar Sa Nima environmental group of San Miguel village. [Ka Kan’el Kar Sa Nima means River Fish Protectors].
According to the project coordinator Kenny Cal, the new resource centre will provide the community with environmental education as well as access to computers with Internet service.
According to Cal, so far, the Ka Ken’el Sa Nima group has already been actively involved in community activities including clean up campaigns along the riverside, the planting of trees and environmental week.
Villagers of San Miguel are already appreciative of the working being carried out in their community and have welcomed the new resource centre.
Among the first beneficiaries of the resource centre will be the women and children, with the hope that it will help to create a healthier and more welcoming atmosphere for visitors to the village.
Leonel Requena, a representative of UNDP says his organization is happy to partner with the Ka Kan’el Kar Sa Nima group to implement this resource centre project because it will provide an opportunity for sustainable livelihood opportunities for the benefit of the entire community.
“We will continue supporting them in achieving their goals,” says Requena.
