El Pradito remains close to heart…
Reflections of OTG staff member Randi Lyn from her visit to El Pradito – Current Chiapas Water Project Initiative
“A place within my heart has been filled, a space reserved for my new friends who feel like family, and it’s heavy as I sit and ponder my return to the “norm.” I may never see Nena (Juanarenalda) of El Pradito again, but we share an unspoken bond of experiences. Witnessing her, an 11 year old, with the daily chore of washing the family’s laundry in the nearby river. I don’t know many 11-year-old girls who not only do their own laundry but the entire family’s, and by hand, after walking to the “washer” and in this case that “washer” being a river. She did it with such ease and rhythm in her repetition, not missing a beat as she scrubbed each piece with soap and then against the rock.”
“On The Ground supports sustainable community development in farming regions across the world.
We accomplish this mission by partnering with communities, donors and other NGOs in the most vulnerable regions of the world to build lasting community infrastructure. This infrastructure makes it possible for these communities to create real and meaningful prosperity for all their citizens. Our work is based in the creation and maintenance of long-term relationships to form international community resilience.”
