A 70-acre education center for agricultural micro-enterprises, CMTAS supports local communities and farmers through sustainable technology. HF funding helped the Center restore pathways and its teaching building so that it could reopen its school. The funding also allowed CMTAS to construct a solarized well that will provide the Quebradas community in Yauco and those in surrounding areas with clean water in the event of another disaster. HF is also helping install a pilot anaerobic bio-digester, which can supply an alternative source of energy to 15 homes and the CMTAS school.
CMTAS vision is to develop an agro-tourism social enterprise that will help sustain these and other projects. Lastly, they received emergency funds to provide furniture and appliances to over 50 small farmers and their families who lost all or part of their homes.
