Less than 30 years ago, the Jalapa Valley was a hailstorm of bullets, landmines and carnage. This is when Friendship City Projects (FCP) first landed on the ground and began working. Today, it is a peaceful place, but as part of the second poorest country in Latin America, Jalapa is still struggling to rebuild its infrastructure. FCP is facilitating access to clean water, helping to empower women with co-op programs, supporting an organic family garden program and re-forestation efforts, supporting a scholarship program and fostering an environment of peace and understanding between the people of Boulder and Jalapa. Join us to learn about FCP efforts and how you can contribute to the solution.
