AFC+A Mission

To cultivate citizen resilience through education, culture and green promotion. AFC+A promotes and implements tools and platforms that empower communities so that they can responsibly manage their natural resources in the long term, ensuring a healthy environment for all as well as safeguarding their historical and cultural legacy.


To coordinate and implement the public policy related to the dredging and channeling of this body of water, while ensuring the permanence and socioeconomic development of the eight surrounding communities, with the protagonist participation of its residents and their community-based organizations.

AFC + A and the Enlace Project recognize the need to collaborate together to support and advance the education of the conservation of the environment and culture of its eight communities in Caño Martín Peña and to achieve the goal of fostering citizen resilience through programs that advance the socioeconomic development and the emotional well-being of the communities.


AFC+A & G8 partner on a 5-year initiative to plan and develop the Bicicaño (bi-pass) into a world-class destination through the creation of 24 murals along the bike-cycle which will tell the cultural and ecological histories of this iconic area.


The 'Ruta de Reflexión' will also incubate micro enterprises advancing cultural preservation and visitors economy.


Under the guidance of AFCA's Artivist, Educator and Muralist Malcolm Ferrer, the project will be facilitated by 5 Promotores Verdes youth, who will be trained to become the first interpreters and guides of the Bicicaño.
