Promoting Community Transformation
Hiking for a Cause! Gus and Elena will hike from Mexico to Canada on the PCT to support Etta Projects and their work in rural villages in Bolivia. Please continue to check out their blog for regular updates of their journey.
Gus and Elena
Elena and Gus recognize the honor of having this experience. They want to make it something that is much bigger and more meaningful than just two young people trekking a great trail. On this trek they want to create understanding about daily issues in the developing world.
Their blog http://pctwimberger.wordpress.com/ will not only describe what it is like to live a nomadic hiking lifestyle, but also reflect on living without everyday comforts such as clean water, toilets, easily accessible food and nearby hospitals. They hope to put reflection into action through your donations that will directly support rural villages in Bolivia by implementing water, sanitation, health and nutrition programs. They chose to collaborate with Etta Projects because they agree with their philosophy of sustainable development – the conviction that local people know their needs best and that they also have the power to meet those needs.
Please take this next step with Elena and Gus by supporting their effort to alleviate poverty in rural Bolivia. Your generosity will help them raise $5,326 — one dollar for each mile of their excursion.
At this time, Gus, Elena and Etta Projects are funding sanitation programs. Help them construct eco latrines!
