PROMOTORES VERDES COMMUNITY CENTER

VILLAS DEL SOL

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.

SOL ES VIDA Mission

To advance the wellbeing and resiliency of the communities at Villas del Sol which since 2002 have struggled to achieve social and environmental justice under the leadership of Waldemiro Vélez Soto.

 

AFC+A & Sol es Vida partner on a 5-year initiative to plan and develop Villas del Sol Community Center as a resiliency hub, capable of powering workshops and trainings for Promotores Verdes community leaders 

 

Under the guidance of AFCA's Artivist, Educator and Muralist Malcolm Ferrer and Waldemiro Vélez Soto the project will be facilitated by 2 Promotores Verdes mothers, who will be trained to become the first custodians of the natural and cultural patrimony of the community, as well as the first mentors of fellow Promotores Verdes.
