The recipientsof this plan are about 300 families with 7 members each, in three different regions, so the total would be 6.300 persons. In the future Fundamarin wants to develop the project in all the community so it will reach the whole 22.000 inhabitants of La Sierra.

 

The aim of the Seeds Banc is the constitution, recuperation and enforcement of a seeds banc in the communities Jewrwa, Nabusimake and Arumake.

 

The most important fact to remember is that the typical food is the base of the traditional knowledge and the guarantee of the survival of the Ijku culture. Since the problems of the communities have not been attacked, the process of identity loosing is still threatening the communities of La Sierra.     

 

The colonization is the principal issue that has devalued the herbs and crops that the indigenes have used for centuries. Now the loss of territory and the arrival of the traders have led the community to the consumerism market, the parents have been sort of pushed to buy unusual products to feed their children. Those products are already expired most of the times, so it is easy to find that children suffer from malnutrition and diarrhea.

 

Then, the seeds bank, besides ensuring the survival of tradition, will ensure the survival of the community itself.
