Assembly information

The assembly of Santa Lucia has acquired one of the best ways of organization and a very inclusive assembly. All workers participate in the  decisions of premium investments, the meetings are advertised on the radio and carried out on the central park, inviting people to join and participate. This assembly not only contributes to the community through the fair trade premium investments, but they also carry out projects and activities by the simple desire to help the area development. One of these projects is being carried out at a rural school in which compost was made. This project contributes directly to the community, creating a space to recycle organic waste and also leads to reflection about the ecological problems that affect the region.
