Quilombo da Caixa Fazenda-Picinguaba
The "Quilombo da Fazenda" is a coastal community near Ubatuba (Sao Paulo).The Quilombolas are the descendants of African slaves that arrived to Brazil by the Portuguese conquest. Luckily I had the opportunity to spend some time with them two years ago. I was working in a cooperation and sustainable work with two friends and with the ONG Curadores da Terra. Now they are in the Ashoka/FundacciónRockefeller competition with the slogan Zero Waste, Sustainable Architecture, Renewable Energy, to fight against trash and poverty. You can find more information about them here. If you want to help them you can vote here.
