An accessible trail on Chiloe Island
Jeroen Beuckels got in touch with me asking if I could spread the word about a very worthwhile project he is working on in Chiloe Island, Chile, which I am very happy to do. Please share with others who might be interested or able to help.
One and a half years ago we started fulfilling our dream to make the beauties of Chiloé’s island accessible to people with an auditory, physical, visual or mental (dis)ability.
With help from the locals and volunteers we have started to build a trail that literally gives everyone access to the outdoors, culture and history of Chiloé’s Archipelago.
The trail will be 400 m (437 yd) long and have 16 rest areas that each will show, feel, smell, tell something about the local fauna and flora, gastronomy, geology, art etc.
To continue building the path we’ll need further funding.
A short video we made visualizes our plans for the trail, click here if you want to watch it.
On our website you can find additional information about what we have been doing in the last years on the farm. The link to the website is: www.alihuen.info
Spreading our idea through sharing the video and website with friends and family would help us greatly as well.
Thanks and kind greetings from Grecia, Jeroen, Tamara and Gabriel
