What do you envision when you think of the countries that border the Andes? Breathtaking mountains? Luscious rainforests? Locally grown coffee?
Good Evidence wants to help expand this understanding. We want to tell you about the amazing grassroots community work that is happening in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. Issues of domestic violence, indigenous inequality, access to media and higher forms of education are some of the issues these innovative organizations are involved with.
So join us on March 24th, to learn more about these fascinating organizations at Good Evidence’s Andes Fundraiser! We are heading to Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia to make four short videos and need your help to get there. The evening will include delicious food, entertainment and activities, with all the proceeds going towards funding this production trip.
Entertainment will be provided by Ruben Esguerra a local artist whose music is described as a mix of Latin and Caribbean musical genres with poetry and hip hop.
Check out Ruben’s amazing music at 1.32 mins: http://www.newtraditionmusic.com/SOLO_WORKZ.html
