FWOP Summit in Mexico in November went well. Dayani Davilla of FWOP is working with two locations to install air monitoring in Mexico.  Spring Break sees her in Nashville helping victims of tornado.

 

Costa Rica    Our partnership with Denton Rotary has meant that the Sustainable House has been restored, that four aquaponic units have been installed and the women’s rural sustainable tourism  network has been trained in more advanced business practices. Two groups of tourists were to arrive in March.  Their first tour arrived March 8.   Some of their activities were, a tour of butterfly sanctuary, learning to make tortillas, participating in cultural and farming activities and making pottery from Costa Rican clay.  A second tour has been postponed until May 9th due to COSVID-19 outbreak.

Tribal Impact Consortium with a focus on Opioid Abuse has been created some two years ago.  With federal funding, Meharry Medical College, UNT, Chickasaw Nation, Ottawa and  Pawnee Tribes in Oklahoma  and Spokane Tribe in Washington a plan for improving prevention, treatment and recovery programs in American Indian Communities.  ARISE Veteran Foundation and FWOP resources will play a role to expand the overall capacity of the Consortium. Thanks to our upcycling project with SWA leather some interesting partnerships are emerging across the world.  Tarkett, an international flooring company, is partnering up with Rock Construction to expand employment and vocational training in the trades, and thus indirectly expand the overall community economic wellbeing. Thus, supporting the vision and mission of FWOP to eliminate poverty by implementing more comprehensive approaches to improve community wellbeing.
