Our non profit society (SOHEC) is currently acquiring a new property, which is 50 minutes from the City of Santo Domingo. It has 189,000 Mt2 (48 Acres), a beautiful main river that crosses the property, “El Sumbador” , which means Humming bird, and a small river that springs on the hills of the same Land; both rivers are clean fresh water that runs all year round.
This Place in the Dominican Republic is called White Stone , because in this area, and on the propriety itself, you can find white –beautiful quarts stones.
Our projects at this time are: - Building Facilities to house the activities, which involves a big multipurpose hall with a few private rooms, a big kitchen, bathrooms and showers, planting the gardens and green house.
The community future building projects are: sauna house, building decks for future cabin sites, and more guest spaces.
Finally we are creating a summer camp project for kids “Multicultural Camp” For Summer 2007, that is intended to become a yearly program that hopefully will generate income to the maintenance and building of new projects for the community.
At present, we have negotiated a favorable lease which member of the group have made possible by individual contribution (still need to pay around $69,000.00 US Dollars in order to own the property). We are fixing the existing house on the property and making it accessible for motor vehicles to cross the river.
Although the main focus of the community project is the vision to create better conditions to Work together with members of the local groups and international community of the Gurdjieff Work, it is also our aim to help and develop several environmental and ecological projects in this area by education and training sustainable living, environmental education, farming, and multicultural understanding.
At this point we are in need of any type of help; -If you wish to contribute to the ideas and practice of community living and the acquisition of the land and building projects, please contact us.
