Earth Water Woman and Community Reforestation in Trinidad and Tobago
Join us on Earth Day for a public screening of the documentary ‘Earth Water Woman’ followed by a conversation with leaders of the Fondes Amandes Community Reforestation Project (FACRP) on Trinidad Tobago.
FACRP is a community-based non-governmental organization that began in 1982 when the late Tacuma Jaramogi and his wife Akilah Jaramogi, commenced work to protect the environment against man-made threats of forest fires. This organization began as a movement of community members, working together to eradicate the annual threat of forest fires within the Fondes Amandes watershed.
Advance registration is required to attend.
