    Cultural Initiative for East Timor: Metan

    East Timor was occupied by Indonesia for 24 years after the Portuguese left. They killed the majority of the indigenous men who fought for democracy, leaving thousands of orphans, known in East Timor as “Freedom Children.” The women took up the fight to rid the country of cruel foreign occupation. The women were critical in getting people to vote for independence. East Timor’s infrastructure was completely devastated by the Indonesian army. The country remains one of the poorest in the world.

  • El Pilar

    Maya El Pilar

    The El Pilar Program works to link the conservation of the great Maya city of El Pilar under the canopy of the forest garden to the local population. Our collaboration helps to raise the visibility of the forest garden practice as a living art. The heritage of the Maya forest and the forest gardening traditions need to be integrated into the contemporary education of the youth in the El Pilar area as a part of the conservation strategies to save the Maya forest and to connect the traditional practices to the growing education programs and the adventure tourism of the region.
