New Talara Project video, ‘Harvesting Hope: Year Two’

6 October, 2016

Since 2014, A Rocha Peru, in partnership with international energy company ContourGlobal, and eight local neighbourhood councils, has been restoring dry forest and promoting social development in and around ContourGlobal’s wind farm in Talara, northern Peru.

pt_groupThe project’s third video, ‘Harvesting Hope: Year Two’ showcases the project’s progress in 2015, and features some of the local people involved in it, like Jessica, President of one of our environmental youth clubs, ‘A Rocha Kids’ (pictured right), and Magda, President of the Mother’s Committee in Luis Negreiros (pictured below on the furthest left).
