Coconut Processing in the Parnaíba Delta

Where We Work

Communities of Caiçara and Torto, the Parnaíba River Delta - Between Maranhão and Piauí

 

What We Do

We support the use of the region's natural resources - the harvesting of coconut - to generate additional household income through the extraction of its essences.

What We Need

The project does not require any EMAF base structure at the moment, but since coconut oil has soared in demand recently, we are working on optimizing the villagers' abilities to process it. We need more resources to develop a coconut plantation - with space to plant it and process it.

Where We Work

EMAF BASE - Community at Vila Progresso in the Bailique/AP Cluster.

What We Do

Due to the rapid erosion that occurs in the region, the community often spends fifteen days without light, so for this reason our plan is to produce solar energy for the EMAF Base, thereby making things easier for the missionaries and volunteers as they develop activities, food storage and adequate conditions to work with the children and young
people at the “Sweet Home”, and other projects during the week.

 

What We Need

The acquisition of solar plates, batteries and other components.
