Amazon Community Development in Anama – Brazil
Our team had built strong relationships with a small community called Anama in the heart of the Amazon, where several impact projects were organized throughout the years. One of these projects was the construction of a community center in the small village, a place for the youth to meet and conduct various community activities including group music and art lessons.
The project was co-developed between us, the community, the high school as well as an engineering nonprofit, Ingénieurs Sans Frontières Québec (ISFQ). The construction of the center had to be carefully planned and designed with the help of professionals. The building had to be elevated on stilts since the entire area gets flooded every year by the Amazon river overflows.
