The new challenge l.jpg

The New Challenge Biosphere Reserve

Because of the success of our work, we have been asked by surrounding communities to work with them in improving their educational and community centers.

From 2008 - 2010, CREES aims to complete the first stage of our work, the development and refurbishment of all community and education centers along the Alto Madre de Dios (approx 15 centers in total). The following stages will be started at each educational and community centre once its infrastructure has been revitalized.

The scale of our involvement now requires a much larger financial investment, how much will depend on how successful we continue to be at representing and raising money to fund these initiatives.

Our general objectives l.jpg

To provide students, parents, teachers & governments the educational and sustainable tools for improved development.

To create sustainable communities that work together for a joint future.

How we work l.jpg

How we work? rural communities.

CREES Foundation, goes beyond just working with communities, it pairs them to global partners who are interested in developing long term relationships.

By finding a development partner CREES can provide local communities not only a potential source of continual funding but unite people from different background and realities.

Local involvement is key to the success of our work, all the physical labor and as much of the building materials are sourced locally.

Education is also a key part of the experience for workers, students, teachers as well as parents.

Complete Rebuild of Community Centre & Restoration of Education Centre

Project Story:

Aguanos is a typical poor rural community in the Amazon.

Houses lack running water and basic facilities.

The majority of children suffer from malnutrition and consistent illness.

Their education centre floods during the rainy season badly damaging the infrastructure and contents.

Due to the poor conditions, the number of students who attend the school has reduced some 40%.
