CEDEHCA presents a grant to Inter-American Foundation on behalf of the Finding Corte Magore project

Michael Campbell of #CEDEHCA (Centro de Derechos Humanos, Ciudadanos y Autonomicos.-) gives Tonia Allen Gould-Author and founder of the Finding Corte Magore project, some wonderful news! CEDEHCA will be presenting a grant to the Inter-American Foundation that involves our co-initiatives with CEDEHCA, as Michael details here in this video.

We are a #socialentrepreneurial #Ecotourism op that utilizes an island to create and serve unique #educational programs to the #impoverished people in the region where the island exists. We feel that land exists to serve its people, and our model deploys some of the highest sustainability standards in the world.
We have so many updates (sorry for the long post!): 🌴We've been in long talks with UCSB's Bren School of #Environmental #Science and Management on a unique #Aquaculture partnership from the #island and we've been making serious headway with Dr.'s Vermeer and Lenihan. We've also been in talks on a communications capstone project with Dr. Leombruni with our project being a potential beneficiary. 🌴We are awaiting final architectural designs on the island and will work to make the island potentially LEED certified, a very difficult feat we hope to accomplish. 🌴Ojai Valley School, a California Green School, has intimated they would like to become very involved in our educational curriculum from both a local and global prospective. 🌴Dr. Lorimer from California Lutheran University is in the process of updating our #educational #curriculum prospectus 🌴Three garden towers being used in our #permaculture initiatives were shipped to Bluefields and our #humanrights beneficiary, CEDEHCA, and we're awaiting pictures to see what's growing. 🌴the Finding Corte Magore project is in the process of creating a formal advisory board and now meets every two weeks at Expert DOJO in Santa Monica for Mastermind meetings with an ever-growing group of highly engaged advocates of the project. 🌴We are working with an org called ENKI Technologies on a unique value proposition that includes a complete revamp of our website with app possibilities. And much, much, more!
Meet Gene. He's part of our #Mastermind group taking place at @expertdojo. Gene has spent an amazing career working in advertising and with big #brands and loves using his #mindshare and talents on this project. He's especially smitten with the #environmental aspects of the Finding Corte Magore project. #doinggood #startup
Since you asked. Thank you to our new "listeners" through Garden Tower Project: We're blown away by all your questions, comments and excitement about this project. Please know that our active followers have followed us from inception and have watched our organic growth - so we see your need for information. This was a dream from our first visit to #Nicaragua over 18 months ago- from wanting an island for social good, to forming a partnership with Ambassador Campbell on his island. In that time, we created a business plan, secured an island, visited the Nicaraguan Embassy in Washington DC, allied with CEDEHCA (Nica Human Rights org), have formed relationships with key advisors like UCSB's Bren School of Environmental Science, CREST, NOAA, California Lutheran University, Conservation International, URRACAN, and received fiscal sponsorship with a 501c to make your donations tax deductible. Finding Corte Magore incorporated as California B-Corp in August with a social and environmental mission that will be perfectly transparent. We have a secondary corporation forming in Nicaragua at Corte Magore at Hog Cay and will benefit from Nica tourism and taxation laws. We feel that land exists to serve its people, and our model (ecotourism + #education in poor, Latin American coastal communities) deploys some of the highest sustainability standards in the world. Out tourists will likely be K-Grey students and citizen scientists, educators, researchers and universities. I have personally selected #GardenTower as our first project from #CorteMagore at Hog Cay. #staytuned #likethispage #moretofollow -Tonia Allen Gould, Author, Thought Leader and Founder
