“The work of Semillas represents an array of successes ranging from a discovery of the jungle, putting on the map a territory that is usually forgotten or only seen for mining and oil exploitation, opening to discussion the importance of quality educational equipment reaching all the territories and questioning the importance of cultural values when proposing a project (…). Semillas now operates mostly in the jungle, but its action can easily reach all corners of Peru or anywhere in the world, because its job is to join forces and build common dreams. ” Al Borde – perfil Global Award for Sustainable Architecture.
