¿What is CABACOOP?
The Network of Incubated Cooperatives is a group made up of cooperatives that have graduated from iCoop. The Cabachuelas Work Cooperative has been part of this group since 2018. The idea is to communicate, fraternize and support the cooperative movement.
Our team is made up of eleven people, including environmental interpreters certified by the National Association for Interpreters (NAI), a community social worker, educators, geographers, agroecological promoters, and an accountant. These people are part of the Cabachuelas Work Cooperative (CABACOOP), a community-based worker cooperative created to support the Cabachuelas Project and dedicated to heritage interpretation and environmental management in the Cabachuelas Nature Reserve and its surrounding communities. .
Our work agenda aims to establish a model and a standard for the systemic transformation of our archipelago. With your sponsorship you contribute to the construction of this Country Project.
¿WHAT IS CABACHUELA'S PROYECT?
After the 2017 hurricane season, Proyecto Cabachuelas through CABACOOP developed partnerships to adopt the Ángel G. Quintero Alfaro public middle school, located in the Barahona neighborhood of Morovis.
We started with a workshop for teachers with Myriam Rivera and two field trips. This phase sought to familiarize the faculty with the resource. From this phase they were asked to identify content of their teaching subjects that could be covered in the Reserve through an activity.
After these activities, three interpretive tours were designed for the three grades taught at that school. The products of these field trips include booklets, reviews, articles, videos, magazines, artistic installations, signs, tenths to music, stairs in the reserve, ancestral pottery, t-shirt design, models, among others. It is expected to reconcile and synthesize the best of these products to make the official brochures and magazines of the Cabachuelas Project. This task is underway.
In our alliances we help coordinate the installation of a water purification tower and guarantee access to clean water in the school community. We developed a School Garden-Orchard, the Mi Cultura Coop youth cooperative, and a Project-Based Learning (PBL) program made up of 16 projects that integrate the school community in educational, recreational, and research activities in the Cabachuelas Nature Reserve.
In addition, we have other collaborating schools in our Educational Program of ''Cabachuelas Project, A Country Project''.
Making this happen took a lot of effort and planning from the entire community, thanks to all the contributors.
