ARCAS Community Development Activites
In a country as poor and with so much inequality as Guatemala, any conservation effort must necessarily go hand-in-hand with sustainable community development activities. Much of the work that ARCAS carries out as it's project sites is community development work, including the following activities.
Efficient Wood-Burning Stove Project.
ARCAS is promoting the use of the 'Justa' wood burning stove, which saves up to70% on the use of firewood while reducing the incidence of respiratory illnesses by removing harmful wood smoke from the home.
Education, Water and Sanitation.
Thanks to the support of Japanese Embassy's APC Fund, ARCAS carried out a portable water project in the Hawaii Area. The Japanese government also supported the renovation of the Hawaii Park and the Wildlife Rescue Center in Peten.
Much of the work that ARCAS carries out at it's project sites is community development work including:
