Genoveva commented on Mayan Languages on the Move

Hi Korinta. Important idea. Important to keep the unique languages from the world, Guatemala having so much richness there. Mam from Washington state would also be a great option. It is a language in extinction and there is a community holding strong of Mam speakers in Washington state.

Vidhya this is a great project. We have done something similar , volunteer based in Cosanga in the Napo Valley of Ecuador and the effects on the community have been very transformative, you can check out some of the ideas we have tried at I particularly like the classes that teach them how unique the place where they live is... most rural people take for granted the special place they call home.


Genoveva commented on THE AQUATRAP

This sounds like a great idea! Have you thought however of how to keep that water from being a mosquito breeding ground? Usually water accumulated in tires is a big problem with keeping mosquitos that spread dengue nearby neighborhoods and schools.
