education is the best investment. to invest in education for these individuals the growth of the agricultural industry to be sold is guaranteed, and thereby make these business plans to support the community, improving not only your income if not the management of public works which have access (road, water, electricity)

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

Currently there are many projects that improve the quality of life of others like installing solar panels (as the Mexican project that sells solar panels at low costs), or improving their nutrition, which are very important needs. however, always they require social assistance if projects that promote economic development are made. The project aims to improve their economic situation travez adequate training to manage their income and not rely more on welfare

Founding Story

Roland and Paul are two friends who were long time helping people going to church and going to villages to Community assistance to indigenous people. soon they realized that most of the families lived on less than $ 200 a month, so they investigated why, despite having local products of very high quality. the answer was because the products they sold did not have adequate prices (12 dlls for a hammock that costs 40) who created UNE to ensure that children do not make the same mistakes and support adults.


we make contracts with universities to provide social services and so getting people to join the cause, just as volunteers together through our programs and we are now more than 50 people serving communities.
