Summer 2010 Greenhouse Projects

We are extremely excited to officially announce our summer greenhouse projects! The Becky Fund will be partnering with a student organization called Team Peru, from the Monterey Institute of International Studies, to construct greenhouses in three villages of the Sacred Valley. The trip is scheduled to take place between June 15 and August 15, 2010. Fund-raising efforts are already underway, including a collaboration with Global Giving (

Next month, Becky Fund Vice-President Aaron Ebner and I (Michael Cutino, Project Manager) will be in Peru (January 4 - January 29) planning and organizing the summer projects. During this time, we will consult with several Peruvian non-governmental organizations, technical experts, government officials, and community leaders to ensure successful completion of the greenhouses this summer. Additional details will be provided upon our return in February. Feel free to contact us with any questions about the projects or to inquire about donations.
