Connect, Create, Conserve (CCC) is an alternative to international aid, and mainstream, destructive global economic systems.
Yukiko Kishimoto, our Japanese intern, joined Nomadic Hands in the Philippines in August 2013, and helped in various activities including conducting evaluations for the Connect Create Conserve project. Here is Yukiko’s photo blog!
A lovely homemade lunch on the first day in Bacolod! My favourite dish was the milkfish called Bangus, which are commonly eaten in the Philippines with Calamansi juice (a small, green, sour, citrus fruit).
Towards the end of 2012 Nomadic Hands was making their way towards Venezuela from Central America to meet with one of their partner organisations Peace Villages Foundation. On the way, they were guided by a couple of socially and environmentally aware travellers, to a rainbow community in the north of Colombia. This experience allowed for Nomadic Hands to develop a further understanding of fundamental approaches to global improvements and to recognise that their support for small, free or low cost groups, should continue.

“Maayong aga, good morning! Jack fruit!”
And a BIG smile.
It was 6:45 in the morning and I had just crawled out from under my mosquito net that was attached to tiny children’s chairs, grabbed my toothbrush and water bottle and opened the door of the day care centre we had slept in. And there she stood, this white-haired lady. Holding the biggest fruit I had ever seen, smiling at me and saying “Maayong aga, good morning! Jack fruit!”
