La Guajira is a beautiful region to the north of Colombia, full of magical landscapes and a vast desert, surrounded by the sea, and filled with the native Wayuu's spirit and wisdom.  For years now, the region has been suffering from  extreme drought, which has created an environmental crisis, and with it malnutrition, economic depression, heightened corruption, and a famine that has proven fatal for indigenous children.

Israel has some of the most remarkable technology and knowledge on water management, environment, and agriculture in the world (specially in the desert). Non profit collaborations between Latin America and Israel are shy, and yet to be developed. Today, more than ever, we need to look into sustainable solutions for the environment, the economy, and the most vulnerable populations that are suffering. La Guajira-Israel is a natural first step in the right direction.  We have the professionals, and the local network to make this happen. We're ready for this, and we need your help!

Preemptive  investigations are critical to  apply the correct strategy in development projects (in this case agricultural and water-related), specially in difficult regions under extreme conditions for three reasons:

1. The first is in order to adequately diagnose the issues, in depth, with a complete, holistic view of what is causing the difficulties. In other words, we must really listen to people on the ground, and assess the reality on the field, before jumping to conclusions. 

2. The second is in order to ensure transparency, and a project with no other agenda than to help (the more precise we are, the more coherent the project).

3. The third is in order to effectively write policy reports, and then submit them to relevant organizations and donors.

We need your help in order to carry this investigation out. We wish in turn to be able to create the largest possible impact, and help thousands of people in dire need of assistance.

Join us in our efforts, help us create a new, independent opportunity for the region!

The goal of this project is to provide a sustainable long-term alternative for the serious drought issue that is affecting La Guajira. A preliminary independent preemptive investigation must first take place. We have invaluable Israeli expertise in water management and development, ready to use.
