By the end of 2011 Cafiesencia was awarded a grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to develop the Arboles y Corales, (Trees and Corales) Project: Empowering Women Through Sustainable Agribusiness. The project integrated core courses in sustainable agricultural enterprises, education on the ecosystems of the watershed, computer and Internet literacy, strengthening the role of communities in sponsoring environmental and sustainable tourism principles.
The project created a community radio program called “Life in the Watershed” (“Vida en la Cuenca”). It provided support for the project and served as a forum for residents and other interested parties of the watershed. Trees and Corals surpassed all its goals.
