Training in the families’ own language allows greater ownership and sustainability of their projects.

“We are going to have the harvest soon and it is very nice, I like it very much. I would like this to continue because this will be of great use to those who follow us.”

Antonio Gómez

WICHI Trainer

He and his team of trainers always work alongside the “edge families” as he usually calls them, those who may not say much but always do. Antonio, as a pragmatic man that he is, is always on those margins, where work does not stop.

SIWOK Method

We train Wichi Trainers who teach and accompany families in their own language and preserving their culture. Thus we achieve the appropriation and autonomy necessary for the success of each project.

Alec Deane

Founder

For more than 30 years he learned and promoted a method of working with Wichi communities in the Chaco Salteño, working alongside them to create and multiply their opportunities while protecting their culture.

Mission: Improve the quality of life of the families of the original peoples of the Chaco Salteño (Wichi) respecting their culture and customs through projects that promote access to drinking water, the development of agriculture and productive enterprises as sustainable sources of food and income.

Vision: To be an organization that together with the Wichi communities can collaborate, accompany and strengthen the sustainability of each one of them through the work of their families.
