THIS IS WHERE THEY LIVE,WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
Above right: In the foothills of the barren slopes of the Andes live Llama farmers, whose children walk many miles to school on Monday mornings, returning home on Fridays having slept on school floors & eaten a basic subsistence diet & who are often too malnourished to learn effectively. Above left: children of a shanty town south of Buenos Aires, scorching in the summer and a sodden or freezing quagmire in the cold wet winters
STOP PRESS May 2012- we have just received a grant from the Jephcott Charitable Trust to complete another water/fruit trees/garden project in Chaco helping 130 school children & their rural families giving hope to a whole community & reforesting barren land, thank you Jephcott Trust for your faith in our work!

Above: Primary school children in a mountain school near Salta. The roof leaks, the floors are mud & damp, their rosy cheeks are typical of this wind swept & barren area where almost nothing grows. Their clothes have all been donated & they are lucky to eat rice for lunch.
Now we need money to provide education materials for 1000's of rural mountain schools who often have to share one pencil, like these above. Please help us to give them a future with hope and make a donation. Click on our donations page on the side bar

Photo below we recently supplied a well to a rural school whose teacher had previously the choice of buying water or food for her pupils, helped by CDUK the school now thrives with fruit trees & a vegetable garden & the children have sufficient food to give them the energy to learn & to develop healthy minds. Healthy minds make good future choices in Earth, The Home We Share
A community cooperative has been set up so that families & babies in their early years will also thrive & have the capacity to learn & be educated toward a more hopeful future. Previously the mortality rate was high and the children totally malnourished. No wonder they are smiling now when they first see the running water at their school!

CDUK ARE FLEXIBLE & MOVE WITH THE TIMES. WHEN WE BEGAN IN 2004/5 WE WORKED MAINLY IN THE SHANTY TOWNS SURROUNDING THE CITY OF QUILMES WHERE POVERTY & NEED WAS GREAT & WE ACHIEVED MANY USEFUL PROJECTS WITH YOUR HELP & SUPPORT. THIS IS HOME TO MANY SHANTY CHILDREN BELOW LEFT
NOW WE FIND THAT THE GREATEST NEED IS WITH REMOTE RURAL SCHOOLS WHERE THE PEOPLE OF THE NORTH CAN FIND NO WORK & ARE OFTEN DISENFRANCHISED & LIVING ON THE MARGINS OF SOCIETY IN DIRE POVERTY, OFTEN WITH OUT ACCESS TO WATER & THE MOST BASIC NEEDS. WE WORK WITH OUR PARTNERS APAER WHO HAVE CONTACTS & 25 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN THESE AREAS. TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER!
