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.

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.

Oil companies have been exploiting the natural resources and the people of Ecuador for decades. Because the country’s economy depends heavily on crude oil, large petroleum corporations continue to enter the Amazon region to drill in untapped areas, forcing local communities to fight back. Ikiam examines the effects of oil damage (and its possible preventions) upon environments, health, economy, and rapidly changing cultures, and also uncovers dark hidden truths about the dangers of taking a stance against such a frighteningly dominant power.
