Taking advantage of the diary relationship with locals, we educate and specialize them in different themes, which are health, environmental education, handicraft and social justice.
Furthermore, the diary work in the communities, building the ecolodges, taking care of gardens, checking new touristic trials, receiving tourists, and so on, involves necessarily the locals, offering them alternatives as guides, cooks, laundry, etc. Alternatives to their old activities, not so “ecological”, as producing coal or selling wood for little money.
The tourism activity, if rightly exploited, can be an occasion of “exchanging experiences, learning and opening perspectives”.
This kind of handicraft can be refined and sold.
Also children can be involved in useful activities as looking for new passages into the forest to renew maps… and the adolescents can be prepared as future guides.
