The NGO “Human Rights and Care of Creation” continues to educate the people in the Altiplano of Peru with their legal rights to their lands. The rural population have to be aware of the harm that the large mining companies are doing to their land. The land that they use for agriculture and raising animals to sustain their living is in danger of contamination from the way the mining is done.

To achieve this goal, the NGO team gives talks and prepares reading materials for the people. They also have a monthly publication called “Arusa” which dedicated several issues in explaining in simple language the rights of the rural communities to be consulted by the mining companies and as a result many communities are asking for short courses in their community for more detailed explanations of these rights.

With your continued support, the people are more educated about their rights and are able to invest in improving their agricultural production and farming techniques.
