FIELD ACTION IN ECUADOR
This is offciciel, Field Action restarts humanitarian mission. After many adventures and customs administration, we start from November 20 to December 2.
Direction to the Andean highlands near Flores, Province of Chimborazo, Ecuador.(1 ° 48’50 S 78 ° 38’40 W)
The purpose of this mission is to provide hikking shoes and new clothes for children of these highlands. In addition to the difficult climatic conditions with an altitude of 4000m, these children come from very poor families. They must daily walk more than two hours to go to school on trails that require adaptive equipments.
This mission is organized with the Association of Children of the Andes which has a representative on site since 1984: Sister Teresita.
Similarly, we will participate in the maintenance or renovation of the building that houses the local mission. And finally, we will intervene in the school on various topics such as computing, foreign languages and an awareness of the problems associated with deforestation.
The program of this expedition is ambitious but as usual, Field Action will be on the ground closer to the needs.
If you want to join this adventure, do not hesitate to contact us. Clarification, the fly ticket remains at your expense.
FIELD ACTION IN NEPAL
Update on the latest Field Action mission which took place in Nepal. Its aim was to provide some 50 Sherpas with hiking boots – transported to them by trekkers. This is already significantly easing their daily work of carrying walkers’ bags (including those of the very trekkers who took out their boots!) and managing trek logistics, often in poor weather conditions. While no association members were able to be present to oversee the operation, I have absolute confidence in the trek organiser – more details on the website for those who want to find out more: http://www.edoziere.fr/

As you know, the year 2011 saw the creation of our organization and realization of the first project on the slopes of the volcano Kawah Ijen in Indonesia.
Three other projects are currently under review and will be discussed at our annual general meeting during January 2012. We will keep you informed as soon as possible on the actions of 2012.
Welcome to Field Action web site.
Field-Action returns from his first visit to Indonesia on the slopes of the volcano Kawah Ijen. During these few days, we have made considerable material assistance to minors sulfur. 200 pairs of hiking boots, more than 3,000 protective masks left with us. In addition, we bought on the spot about 300 pairs of socks in order to employ the local economy.
In addition to help minors, we also provided support for a school near the volcano buying locally also, notebooks and pens.
See all the pictures of the expedition in the Missions tab.
This mission was crowned with success. But we must not forget that without your memberships and donations, we could not bring all this material . Also, as the President of Field-Action, I would particularly like to thank you very much.
Field-Action is already thinking about the future with a new mission. It is to bring hiking boots for teens near Quito in Ecuador. These children walk for over an hour to travel from their village to the local school. They have little or no shoes, but very willing and motivated in their studies. Field-Action also will visit the site to help them and also participate in educational sessions on topics of computer science, foreign languages, health…
Here is the place of our first action. Indonesia, precisely Kawah Ijen volcano.
