My story

[p]The Hatters Sustainable Development Fund is in place to support all of our volunteering of this nature, the current fundraising is all to support our project in Viacha, Peru. [/p][p]In August 2018 49 of us, with 15 Leaders, are travelling to Viacha, a small community in the Peruvian Andes, to build a thermal mass greenhouse - which we have also committed to pay for.[/p][p]We are working alongside local charity 'Living Heart Peru' to enable the community in Viacha to build an insulated, thermal mass greenhouse from mud brick walls, a wooden roof frame and finally a plastic roof. The greenhouse will enable the village to grow a range of vegetables and salads whereas they are currently restricted to only potatoes. [/p][p]In Viacha, a combination of weather, climate and poor soil mean that it is extremely difficult to grow anything other than potatoes. Furthermore, the distance from Viacha to the nearest major town, Cusco, and poor infrastructure means there are very few opportunities for the villagers to work and earn money. [/p][p]The leader team have been planning with ‘Living Heart Peru’ since early 2016. It is a brilliant and ambitious charity; in more accessible villages they have built three successful ‘thermal mass greenhouses’. These are typically 100m long with mud and stone walls, a wooden frame and plastic roof. The greenhouse retains temperature and moisture so that a variety of herbs, salads and vegetables can be cultivated all year round. [/p][p]Building the greenhouse will not only make a huge difference to the people in this village, but will have a real impact on the lives of the Explorer Scouts committed to this project.[/p][p]Our plans have come a long way, but one of the largest hurdles is raising the £60,000 we need to buy the materials and tools to build the greenhouse, and provide all the equipment Viacha needs to build a sustainable food supply. Each explorer and leader is also putting in half of the money it will cost per person and we are fundraising the rest.[/p][p]The money we're raising is going on the materials, tools etc. but also a development plan for the village which covers dental care, education, the food they'll grow and stuff. A chuck is also going on our accommodation and sustenance while we're there but we're pumping that into the local economy, paying villagers to cook for us and enough food for them and their families.
