Sustainable development projects by the Galo Plaza Lasso Foundation are carefully designed for the needs and context of the local community and environment.

True sustainability requires that development be sustainable environmentally, socially and economically.  For this reason, almost all of our development projects include components fitting into these 3 categories.  For more information, read the pages education (for the planet and for life),  conservation (of the environment and wildlife, and other environmental themes for sustainability),  and development (economic growth and sustainability) to see how our sustainable development projects relate to these criteria.

Each sustainable development project is listed in the menu to the left.

Rural sustainable development is a slow process which must be inclusive and community-led if it is to succeed.  The Galo Plaza Lasso Foundation aims to facilitate and support development initiatives by local communities.  You can help by donating (see the button in the top right corner of this page), volunteering or contacting us to put us in touch with potential sponsors or suppliers.
