I have come to know and love a beautiful woman, Natalia Hari Gopal. She is an inspiration to those around her and has a spark that will put a smile on anyone’s face.
This summer she is going to Guatemala – for an internship with a social impact venture that trains women how to vermicompost (create compost with worms) to generate income assisting them to stop working as wastepickers in Central America’s largest landfill.
She is having a fantastic online raffle – with prizes for all! We have donated a pregnancy pampering gift basket, and a placenta preparation gift certificate. Tons of other great prizes! Scroll down to see them all.
She is going down to Guatemala to assist a social entrepreneurial venture called Byoearth that began 5 years ago and has since recruited 45 women in their Worms for Change program. The women are trained in vermicompost- they then sell the compost back to Byoearth who in turn sells it at affordable prices to subsistence farmers of GUatemala to assist them to ween off of chemical pesticides. Byoearth also helps to train rural farmers in creating their own vermicompost organic fertilizer. Part 2 of her mission is also to conduct fieldwork for a fellowship I was accepted into to enhance social impact ventures in Guatemala in general
Watch a great video on this subject: http://vimeo.com/27420349
She has created a Facebook event page to help raise funds to go to Guatemala to complete the internship/fellowship.
