The Childrens Lands – A new project at Sta. Cruz, Ica, Peru

The success of the previous projects, the adoptation of the scheme in several other countries worldwide and the success of the multi-lingual manuals has led the Foundation to back what promises to be a new show project in tandem with the Orbis Pictus Trust. The scheme after extensive planning with Joaquin Leguia was commenced early in 2011 and should be complete by this summer. This scheme will bring improved play and education facilities to highly impverished children, will teach them to preserve the environment, will provide clean water and latrines and at the same time will adopt and maintain and replant a small grove of the threatened Huarango trees. The childrens play centre may be constructed of recycled plastic bottles covered in adobe and whitewashed as an ecological and highly efficient ecological and thermal solution.
