El Paredon, Guatemala

Minimum Fundraising Commitment: $2,500

In Guatemala 50% of children suffer from chronic malnutrition – the 4th highest figure in the world. On top of that, only 25% of the population cultivate their own fruit and vegetables, with 65% of the population only eating fruit and vegetable once a week. This is exacerbated in El Paredon, where there is limited opportunity to buy fruit and vegetables in the village, with a fresh food truck coming just once a week. 

To counter this issue La Choza Chula teamed up with Surf for Life volunteers, Lynne Zaledonis and Justine Crosby Galloway, to build a garden at the secondary school. Now the garden needs additional infrastructure, including creating a solar water pump, compost area, walls, fencing, seed propagation area, and more. These added elements will ensure the garden is robust and will last well into the future.

Sacred Valley, Peru

Fundraising Commitment: $2,800 including $350 non-refundable deposit 

The Sacred Valley is known as the breadbasket of the Incas for its agricultural production that fed an empire. The picturesque valley sits at 10,000ft above sea level and is rich in history and archeological ruins, the most famous of which is Machu Picchu. This area and surrounding communities still take part in traditional farming practices well suited for harsh mountain terrain. Surf For Life volunteers will be supporting small-scale farmers and agricultural development in the Sacred Valley by assisting in the continued construction of an agricultural school in the community of Sacclio.
