Legacy Foundation in partnership with Fuñdación Progresar in Guatemala completed a TRAINING OF TRAINERS in Solola Guatemala from 12-16th November 2012. Fifteen EcoLeña producers learned how to conduct biomass briquette training and are now available to provide comprehensive training services in Mesoamerica and Latin America, through Fundación Progreser.

This TOT was built upon the recently completed intensive biomass briquette producer's training from 16-21 April in Tecpan Guatemala with 20 participants from Sacapulas, Quichè, Coban, Huehuetenango, Altaverapaz and San Marcos. Participants also included INAB staff (the National Department of Forest Conservation). Then after the participants were producers for over six months, several producers were selected to become EcoLeña trainers. Both trainings have been a solid start to the development of EcoLeña producers and trainers in the region.

The strong connection between the project and the Maya respect for Mother Earth and its resources was profound and brought us all together even though we were speaking at least 5 different languages during both of the training events.

The challenge now will be to ensure that the information spreads, that the technology remains appropriate and that the development of skills in briquette making grows.

Richard Stanley and Peter Stanley (photographer) with the support of Josh Vinlove as translator visited some of the production sites at the end of June 2012 and were pleased to see the great progress being made on the project.
