Our proudest moment of the past year:
“Developing high impact projects, growing our team to 55 people in the last 6 months and expanding our knowledge in sustainable development to implement our projects.”

Biggest challenge from the past year:
“Picking project leaders because we wanted to see the commitment they have with the project and reaching communities that wanted to participate with us. We made a schedule to call and visit communities with the leaders that were committed and evaluate the viability of the project.”

Team described in one word:
Perseverance.
