This year, the Cornell and UPenn Nourish Chapters will partner with the Arajuno Road Project to expand community gardens, develop a greenhouse, and teach English and health education classes with a local primary school in the outer Amazon Jungle.
We partnered with the Arajuno Road Project last summer and worked on projects that focused on food security in the community of Chuyayacu and health & hygiene in Esfuerzo, Chuyayacu.
This summer, students will work with the community and community leaders to complete the greenhouse, develop community gardens, establish a compost system and create/develop English and health education curriculum for the local primary school.
Additionally, there will be a focus on a forest conservation initiative to further support the community and integrity of the Ecuadorian Amazon.

This will be our second year working with the Arajuno Road Project. This non-profit organization supports children and their families by working on community development and conservation programs in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
