SOLIDARITY PROJECTS

Cultural awareness is very important to us. Sensitive to the local cultural traditions and beliefs, the beauty of the landscapes and the biodiversity of the ecosystems, we choose to limit the negative impact of our activities on the local environment. In addition to designing trips that aim at preserving the natural, cultural and social resources of the territories in the long term, we also include the concept of “Territorial Compensation”. The idea of Territorial Compensation is to help local people protect and conserve their ecosystem, enhance their cultural heritage and develop sustainable projects for their territory.

Based on this concept of Territorial Compensation, TransHumans donates 3% of the total price of each trip to this cause. The money goes directly into a solidarity fund that finances our ERECA program (Education Relative à l'Environnement et aux Cultures Aborigènes), an environmental and cultural program supporting training and awareness-raising among the local communities.

0cartehuarpe

Started in 2015 - Ongoing

TransHumans created the game of the 7 Families with the help of the Archaeology team of the UNCUYO University (Mendoza). This simple card game is based on the Pre-Huarpe culture: the indigenous people who lived in what today is known as the Cuyo region which includes the provinces of San Juan, Mendoza, and San Luis. The game has been used in different rural schools together with other pedagogical activities based on the Huarpe culture (ceramic classes, gardening activities, etc... )

Aim : A playful tool to foster understanding of these almost forgotten native people and increase cultural sensitivity.

Period : 2014-2015

TransHumans supported SOLAR INTI in the construction of environmentally-friendly solar ovens and mini cookers for schools. TransHumans helped organizing workshops where young people were taught to make rectangular ovens from aluminium, glass and wood. Such educational activities covered different topics such as physics, optique, mathematics and nutrition.

During : 2012 - 2013

TransHumans supported SOLAR INTI in the reduction of energy consumption by school canteens in rural areas of Salta. We are talking about relatively isolated schools, with limited access to conventional energy supplies. Based on these principles, the program managed to promote a more efficient way of cooking on wood fire, using less than 50% of the wood normally required.
