* Thursday, March 13th


DECIDE AC is a civil association with the objective to generate sustainable development models in the desert, an ecosystem that naturally presents limitation factors such as the lack of water and scarce natural resources.  They believe that communities grow stronger by joining forces and defining needs and develop agreeable solutions.

Founder Melanie Torre, who lives in El Centenario, wanted to do something to help out her community.  She set out to define the needs of the people in the area and now, after two years of talking to members of the community and listening, she has developed strategies through an multidisciplinary approach to build the foundation for the non-profit DECIDE.

Her three actions for the area include

  1. An Ecological Community Park with Library
  2. A DECIDE Model Home
  3. Environmental Education.

Huge goals but first things first and Melanie would love to get started on goal number one – the ecological park. Land has already been donated and cleared out.  Funds are now needed to get started on green construction.

Why is it important for Melanie to get started on the park and library?  “I asked the kids at the primary school when I first got started with this project that if they could have one thing, what would they like to see in the community. And you know what they told me?  A library.  They want a library.  How could I not work to give them that?” Melanie explained.

If you love your community and would love to support it to see it thrive, please plan on attending the first fundraiser event for DECIDE so that their project can move forward.

Generous sponsors have donated auction items including a day of Whale Watching at Magdalena Bay, Bed & Breakfast at Casa Tota in Todos Santos, dinner at Club Marlin and snorkeling with the Whale Sharks just to name a few.
